Speedtest your web connection

If you are like me and have a high speed cable connection, you often wonder if you are getting what you pay for regarding speed of connection.

Here are my results from using Speedtest.net:

I had been paying $57 per month for the privilege of gaining high speed internet access from the bloated corpse that was Adelphia. Comcast finally has taken over the Adelphia accounts in my area. (I need to burn another dial up modem on the Cat-5 altar later).
What is startling is that when I asked Comcast how fast of a connection I can get and what does it cost they replied that my price per month would DROP $5 per month (to $52 which is still ugly) while tripling the upload and download speeds Adelphia was delivering. I guess it wasn’t just the Rigas family horking the coffers that led to the fall of Adelphia.
Two other cable modem speed test sites that have worked pretty well for me:
bandwidthplace.com
dslreports.com/stest – one of the better ones to use imo.
