Take a Speed Test

Speakeasy Speed TestThis is cool. The Speakeasy Speed Test measures your upload and download speeds in realtime. And it displays the results as a nice flash animation.

I’m on dialup and my download speed turned out to be 32 kBps while upload was 194 kBps. I’m not sure how accurate are these results but oh well. Somehow I find it hard to believe my up speed was over two times better than downstream. 😛

It measures speeds with respect to the specific download sites. I chose NY because that’s the closest to me. Still, if you don’t live close to any of these cities, the results probably wont be that accurate.

Still this is a fun toy – something to do when you are bored.
