Speed test website questions

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I always used:
http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/
to test my speed.

I know it to be an excellent site for testing your speed as I install ADSL, and often use it with customers when I do a full install. I came up with 24 mbps down/ 1.5 mbps up.

But, since I've been on OCN I noticed some users using:
http://www.speedtest.net/
So I tried it and got totally different results, 710 kbps down / 1.5 mbps up.

So I tried another to confirm these two test:
http://www.internetfrog.com/mypc/speedtest/
and you guessed it totally different results. 5.4 mbps down/ 1.4 mbps up.

Try em' out tell me what you get.
