Ever wondered what speed you're actually getting with your internet provider?

If so, take a test drive of our broadband tester.

It performs a test to show your your download and upload speed to the internet.

The address is: http://www.vincentownersclub.co.uk/bbtester/

There's also a link in the second row of the blue navigation bar at the top.

According to this I live live in London or Maidenhead- (Great name!) but I thought we only had a steam powered connection! or maybe Chicken compost.

My results..

Mine at 23:00Hrs were:

0.977 download
0.218 upload

I tried Maidenhead as a sample test and got:

1.003 download
0.216 upload

I then tried London as a sample test and got worse:

0.964 download
0.213 upload

So it seems I'm not doing badly, but not quite as good as NKT.

For me, 5.2 Mb down, 620 Kb up. Compared to the speed test program my ISP provides, the download is a little higher, but the upload is a little lower. My provider's test yields 5.0 down, 653 up.

Speed test

The VOC test site gave me average results of 6000kbps download and 450kbps upload for my Virgin Media(NTL) connection. Cost is around 40 quid a month for the cable digital TV/phone and internet. What was more interesting was comparing and testing speeds with much better results to different worldwide locations with this interesting site.

Most other test sites such as the BBC (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/7416471.stm and http://www.broadbandspeedchecker.co.uk/) gave around 9000 kbps and 500 kbps.
