Check your Internet connection speed

If you would like to test the speed of your Internet connection, there are a lot of free online speed tests that you can use. My personal favourite is Speedtest.Net.

I first used one of these tests after a friend of mine complained that she'd changed her provider to get a faster connection, but then found it was actually slower than before.

The test I did showed that my connection was also a lot slower than my provider had promised, but after a phone call and an online diagnostics test, they managed to speed things up a bit.

If you are paying for a high-speed DSL connection it's worth checking that you're actually getting what you're paying for.
