This site is very useful in testing your internet connection speed and finding
which companies offer higher connection speeds in your area. This is a very
handy tool.

I thought it was cool to acutal find out your connectivity. Good to use if you
want to check your connection at home.

This site is cool because you can check out your connection speed. Also
provides information on how benchmarking works which is very useful.

I tested my bandwidth and it was slightly below the speed that I was given when
I logged in. I will return to this site periodically so that I can verify that
it works correctly.

Very cool way to test your Internet connection. Also the list of ISP's that can
provide faster connection was useful.

Neat way to see what your actually connectivity is. I used this link at work
just out of curiousity.

Excellent resource. Very nice and helpful in determining your current bandwidth
(519.1 kps).

I think that this is a good site to find out if your phone lines are capable of
transmitting at high speeds, mine is not. It also offers links to service
providers, I checked to see if DSL was available in my area, but it is not.

I found this site very useful. I was seeking for more bandwidth line in my
area. By using this site I am able to get info & availability of the Internet
(Broad band) service in my area. It is a great web site to figure out bandwidth
that u can get in area.
