    internet speed test speedtest 550x403 10 BEST way to Check Internet SpeedI have been using Broadband Internet connection from long but the problem with my service provider is they are not consistent with speed. Many times, I check my internet speed to confirm if I’m getting allocated bandwidth or not.

    To make your work easier, I’m sharing list of 10 websites (free) which will let you run a speed test and check internet speed. Out of all, I use Speedtest.net most of the time.

    Though before you run this test, make sure you close all active windows and your system is not downloading anything including Windows speed. Else you might not get the right speed and this will create issue for your customer service to diagnose the issue.

    There are many broadband companies, which offers free upgrade if you moving from an old broadband company, you might like to talk to your local broadband provider and use your social engineering skills, to get a faster broadband connection next time but at a cheap price.

    Useful Websites to check Internet Speed:

    I’m not listing websites in order of any thing. These are those websites which I often use and speedtest.net is my favorite among all. Though, other sites are also worth a look.

    Speed.io :

    Interesting Website with really nice interface, seems like some virtual speedometer. These websites let you check your ping, soeed and more. In short, Speed.io is a modern DSL speed-test to analyze your broadband internet access. <Link>


    Wire Speed Test :

    One thing which you might not like about this broadband speed checker site is, it doesn’t ask before running a test. As soon as you land on the site, it will run the speed test.  What I like is it perform its task quickly. Though, that always depend upon how fast your connection is. <Link>

    McAfee Speed test :

    Sadly, one of the most boring interface I have seen in this. Good thing about this site is, it’s probably the fastest one as it only downloads a file size 150 Kb. Though, I’m not sure if it gives actual data based on such small file download? Well, I doubt as test from Mcafee is just taken after test from wire speed test site above. And note the difference in speed test. You might like to run your test 2-3 time to get accurate result. <Link>

    Intel Speed Test :

I love the interface and in a digital map, you can select  closest server for running the test. It also checks for Powerboost, which is being used by many broadband companies to give a boost while downloading. Easy to remember domain name, and nice interface.  <Link> They also have an iPhone app to check your iPhone internet speed, which you can download from here.
