:dumb: This is probably a stupid question, but is there a way to check what your internet speed is?

I know what we are supposedly paying for, but I don't think they sent us the correct modem or that we are receiving the higher speed that we are paying for - is there a way to check this?

Other than asking the provider obviously?

Thanks!!

If it's Broadband you can use SpeedTest:
http://www.speedtest.net/

or you can run the PCPitstop tests

Hi yes you can easily test the speed of your internet using sites like Scanmyspeed.com here they will measure the speed of your internet in Mbps...

EDIT: Dubious link disabled - use at own risk...

That website is listed as probable SPAM on WOT and I strongly recommend that it be avoided...  The options offered by jedi are far more likely to be safe... 

 

@kanjera - if any more dubious sites are posted or if this one is restored, you will no longer be welcome at SWI - we do not tolerate SPAM...

Isn't there another factor involved, i.e, the server capacity of the website that you are visiting. Am I mistaken, the 'Speed Test' sites give you a best case scenario.

Server capacity might effect download speed, it wouldn't impact the speed of your connection to the Internet...  Your connection speed can vary according to various local conditions, including the times when a lot of people are using the Internet on the same signal...  The speed tests will usually tell you what the speed is at the time that you connect and may change at other times...

speedtest is best to check the internet speed status.
