Clicky

I'd like (just for interest) to check the speed of download and upload over my internet connection.  Just to see how it compares with the 'promised' rates.
Is there a freeware tool or built in utility (Windows 7) that can do this for me?

Theres a ton of free speed tests online, just google it.  You should go to your ISP site though to see if they have a speed test.  Remember, they have a scale that still falls in the good connection range.  For ex.  if you're maying for a 7.8m down and a .768 up..your speed test could come back as a down of 4.3 and your ISP will still consider that within range of operating correctly.

And the 'promised' rates are just between you and your ISP.  Anything past that will not even be 'promised' because your ISP has no control over other peoples connections.
