There are many internet speed tests available online, that's not what I am looking for.
There are many times when the net seems to be crawling, and other times when it speeds along. Most of the time, a speed test will show no difference. Occasionally, a computer reboot will speed things up again.
Looong time ago, one of the benchmark test that you could run on a machine used portions of various popular programs and ran them sequentially and come up with a global functional speed result. Is there anything like that that can give a global indication of internet traffic throughput? For example. the application might do a google search, open and scroll Facebook, check out new postings on BC, post and receive and email, etc. Then it would report a numerical grade for the connection throughput.
