    Test My Hosts Speed

    Hi,

    I have a terrible connection speed here in the UK. An embarresing 1Mbit - 1.5Mbit. And what makes it worse is that my provider should be giving me 20Mbits. Ohh the agony and annoyance.

    Anyway, can any one of you do me a quick favour and download the test file from below. Please report back your download speeds.

    Thanks alot!

    I seem to be getting ~30KB/sec here in Romania (Eastern Europe) on a 12mbit line. Varies between 20 to 40KB/sec. Obviously slow.

    Well, now they're on a 100Mbit, so it seems better, but yes, not amazing.

    Thanks!
