Yet another speed test site (may be useful)

This one gives all sorts of info and you can do repeat (auto) tests over a (user set) period of time.  It utilises servers in London, so you might get a better result down there.  It also gives quite comprehensive results:

Re: Yet another speed test site (may be useful)

I have been recommending the multi threaded test (http://testmy.net/multithread) on that site to PS4 users on here for a while now as it is one of the few test sites that runs OK in the PS4's web browser.

Re: Yet another speed test site (may be useful)

I stumbled across it by searching the Googles and thought it was worth a go, as it seems to be different to the usual speedo format testers.  I also noticed a few VM readings as well, meaning users here got there before I did.Smiley Happy

Ever want a test that is 100% reliable and actually use there own servers there is always HTTP://OVH.NET <3

Also as http://speedtest.net is going a little downhill they seem to be doing alright with http://beta.speedtest.net
