SpeedTest.net Beta: Addictive

Posted by Andru Edwards - Categories: Broadband, Internet

If SpeedTest.net is anything, it’s addictive. We know, the validity of various broadband speed tests across the Internet is questionable. With so many variables across both your internal network as well as the Internet as a whole, along with bursting services like Comcast SpeedBoost, these tests can be off. That’s fine, but we still can’t help getting pissed at Comcast when our speed test to a server across the world isn’t up to par with advertised speeds (of course, we typically are pissed at Comcast regularly anyway.)

Nonetheless, if you want a cool interface you can use to test your broadband speed, give this site a look. They do try to be a bit better than the standard test, as they account for jitter, client location, distance to server, and latency. They give you all those numbers (as well as ping), along with distance to test server, and a way to save and share your results. Oh, and if you didn’t get it by now, they feature test servers from across the globe. Fun times.
