Another free Speed Test, this one made with Java, that you can use to test your connection; you can also download and install this on your website – visitors will love it!
Before you take this test, have you taken our Internet Speed Test? If not, you should!
This speed test is one of the most comprehensive and free internet speed tests on the internet today. If you haven’t taken this test, you should; it’s very accurate and will help you determine the speed of your internet connection.
Here are some examples of sites built around our speed tests!
Free Speed Test
Want to add a cool speed test to your site? It’s easy to use, easy to install and works with any language you can think of (German, Spanish, etc). This test also works with any type of web technology, such as ASP, PHP, CGI, Blogs, Forums and just about any type of content management system you can think of!
I put a LOT of time and energy into this speed test and you are welcome to use under the following conditions:
1) Place a valid link back to my speed test page somewhere your site.
A valid link is one that can be found in Google’s cache of your webpage. If Google can’t see it, then it’s not valid. Permission to use the test is granted provided you maintain this link and our terms do not change (should they change, I’ll post that change on this site) – I use Google’s cache to verify that sites using my free speed test maintain the link (credit). The purpose of this free tool is to help promote my advanced speed test, the link helps make visitors aware of that test.
2) Use is permission based – All I ask for is that you agree to our terms of service (no inappropriate sites, usage, etc), ask for and receive permission from me before using this tool. Simply leave a comment (I keep requests private) or send me an email with the url of where you would like to run the test AND where my credit can be found. I’ll review the page and if approved, you’ll receive an email back giving you permission to use the tool.
3) It is not used for profit, repackaged as a plugin, gadget, module or any other form than on a standard web page.
Note: The tool is free under the above conditions. For use of the speedtest without credit, please contact me for a price sheet and rates.
Sorry about the conditions, but I have found many websites using my tool without giving credit. This free speed test was created to help people find my more advanced speed test, if they don’t see the link, they won’t find the test. If you don’t like these conditions, simply do not use the tool. There are plenty of other tests out there that may not have conditions attached to it or will allow you to use the test for a monthly fee.
* * * For those that wish to use the speed test within their organization, it’s still possible. Simply place the link back to our advanced speed test on one of your company’s main web pages that are in the Google cache. Again, you need to write for and receive permission before use.

Speed Test Details
Internet Speed is defined as: the rate at which data crosses the internet to its destination. Internet service providers claim to offer a certain amount of bandwidth and the only way to measure the bandwidth is through speed tests; not the speed test that’s hosted on the same network as your internet service provider, but an outside, non-biased speed test.
Below is a table of internet speed and associated internet service provider (technology).
|Your Speed||Standard Service|
|3 Mbps||Cable Modem|
|1.5 Mbps||DSL / T1|
|56 kbps||56k Modem|
|28 kbps||28k Modem|
|14.4 kbps||14k Modem|
|14.4 kbps||Vic 20 or C64|
