There are many sites on the Internet that can test your speeds. The one above is a good one to use.

FWIW - the closer the test site is to you, the better the results. This is because it measures the speed between you and the test site. If there's a glitch in any of the routes to the test site, then your speed will be slowed down - even if your local ISP is providing you with the rated capacity.

Open up a command prompt (Start...Run...type in "cmd" (without the quotes) and press Enter) and type in "tracert www.google.com" (without the quotes) and press Enter. You'll be able to see how many "hops" it takes to get to Google from your home computer.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
