Ever wonder if you're getting the connection speed promised by your Internet provider? When things slow to a tortoise-like crawl, do you ask yourself, How slow is my Internet today?

Here's a simple way to get those questions answered. From their web site: " measures your current internet speed to the nearest server (we have almost 50.000 server worldwide). We test your download (speed with which you receive data from internet), upload (speed with which you send data to the internet), connection test (maximal number of connections per minute) as well as ping (response time between your computer and the internet)."
