Wondering if the ISP is offering you the actual Internet speed that you were promised at the time of signing up?

With SpeedTest.net, you can quickly determine the actual download and upload speed of your Internet connection using the browser itself. The service will pick the nearest ping server, based on your IP address, to measure the upload and download speeds on your computer.

You may want to disable any download managers running in the background. Also, if the service has issues detecting your upload speeds, turning off the anti-virus and firewall software on your computer momentarily during the test may fix the issue.

SpeedTest also offers mobile apps for iOS and Android devices to help you measure data speeds on your WiFi or cellular networks.
