    CAN ANYONE HELP ME CHECK MY INTERNET SPEED PLEASE??

    Hi-im not very technical and just want to check what speed i actually am geting. I have had the usual upgraded service with virgin and have never noticed a speed increase so just wondered what im actually getting. Also if im getting 10meg (i think thats what they are charging me for!) what difference does it make to me between that or 20meg or even 2meg. I dont download music etc-just use it for browsing.
    Thanks anyone who can help! Louloo

    this generally seems to be the most accurate

    speedtest.net/

    For a reliable reading go to [url]www.microsoft.com/downloads[/url]. Then click 'Games' on the right hand side, scroll down and click on 'Age Of Empires III'. When the download box pops up, just click 'Run' or 'Open', and that will show your speed.....For 10Meg Broadband, you should be getting a download speed of around 1mb per second.
    Just click cancel when your ready, no need to download the whole file.

    I dont know how accurate these tests are Louloo ? ... I have tested mine several times in the past with the same site & the results are always different :? & also different sites come up with different speeds too ! Probably best to do a few tests & do an ''average''.

    Me too. I am only on 2.2Mbps Broadband, but found that the average comes out around 1957kps.

    Most of the sites give inaccurate readings, but the Microsoft method is very accurate :thumbsup:

    Your speed may not have been 'rolled up' yet.....not all areas have been done.
