    How can I check my REAL Internet connection speed?

    How can I check my REAL Internet connection speed?

    I can left-hand click the 2-little computer at the task bar, and it says that my speed is 11mb, and it is not.

    How can I check the real one, or any application can let me do so?

    Thanks in advance.

    I think there is a download speed clocker at cnet.com, but I'm not sure how reliable it is...

    Thanks, and I tested it at tp://bandwidthplace.com/speedtest/ and the result is a bit more than 60K.

    Well...

    I dont rely on such "speed-meters", cause: what can i do when i know i have max. connection speed of xx kb/s....

    What really matters is: 1.) What connection/download-speeds do you get on average (i had DU-Meter running and im online 24/7, so i let the logs run up one month, then took all daily stats and divided it through (number of days)*24 and there was the average....

    2.) It doesnt matter whats your topspeed...besides it really varies a lot due to: different protocols, different speed of the server youre on, distance to the server (= number of nodes in between can vary a lot....)

    And so on.....
