Looking for a professional but fun broadband speed test? We have just what you need, and best of all, it’s free! Own a website and want to place this broadband test on it? No problem, easy to do and it’s free as well!
This broadband speed test is made with Flash and will help you test your bandwidth and find your true connection speed. Current version is v14.2 Updated 2/5/2014 and expires Feb 4th 2015.
* If the start button doesn’t show or you receive a maintenance mode message, you need to download the latest version of the Broadband Speed Test.
Have you taken our Internet Speed Test? If not, you should!
NOTE: Try my Facebook Speedtest Application to verify your results! If you have any questions, please leave a comment at the bottom of this page.
Do you own a website? If so, did you know you can offer this broadband speed test to your visitors? It is easy to install and you can have it up and running in a matter of minutes! You will need PHP or ASP (most web hosting companies use this).
You’ll find similar broadband tests available on the internet, but you have to pay a yearly or monthly licensing fee; not so with ours! Yup, you can offer your visitors a great utility without paying a cent.
Many of our visitors have requested that logging be added to our broadband speed test, so that is exactly what we have done. If you choose to run this free utility with logging, then you will have detailed stats you can use as you see fit!
We went the extra mile and made the logging so that it occurs outside of the flash environment and happens inside a php or asp file. The broadband speed test comes with a default php file which you can use, but the beauty of it is that you can modify this file to record stats however you like (text, sql, access, etc).
Broadband Testing Popularity!
You’ll find that your broadband speed test will be well received and become very popular! So popular in fact, that some visitors will keep taking the test over, and over and over… Why? – let me explain.
It happens like this – a visitor finds your free broadband speed test and tells everyone inside their organization. That organization is massive and although they all have individual IP addresses internally, they have only one (or a few) external addresses.
Because the organization uses only one external IP address, the logs show that one visitor (IP) took the broadband speed test 200 times! This is were the cool part of logging comes in – the log file can record the users IP address and a limit could be set based upon the number of times the broadband test was taken.
A message could appear that would say something like:
We see that you have taken the broadband speed test 10 times today and have reached the daily limit. If you didn’t take the test yet, then others from your organization may have and there is no need to retest. Here is the average result from your organization (or IP address).
Regardless of how you install the test, you have a ton of possibilities on how you want to record and / or limit the broadband speed test.
So Jim, what is the catch? How can I get this installed on my site?
All I require is that you not use this test on inappropriate sites and let others know where you found the test, either by providing a link to our speed test, our security services or one of our other free tools on a page indexable by search engines.
This broadband testing tool was created to help promote my site, help me do that and you’re welcome to use of the test on your personal website (if you didn’t like it, you wouldn’t use it right?)
* This speed test is for personal websites. If you’re a business, for example an ISP or other company other than a personal website owner or an individual looking to use this on a social media site like facebook, you need to contact me for more details and receive authorization before using the test; authorization is good for a year at which time you’ll need to contact me again for continued use (the test has an expiration date (1/2013), so visit our Security Information page to be notified before it expires or watch this page for the new version).
This broadband speed test is ready to start making you money, all you need to do is replace your ad code with the default ad code found inside the index.html file.
Here are some cool icons you may be interested in using to give me credit or to tell others about my free speed test.
SPEED TEST INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
This speed comes packed with all the files needed to get your app running in less than a minute! If you are running ASP rather than PHP, you’ll have delete two file, then rename two before it will run.
This speed test can be re-sized to work with most ads and works great with WordPress, Joomla, Drupal or any other content management system you may have!
Either click on the link above or copy and paste the address into your browser, then download and unzip the contents to a directory of your choosing on your web server (example: /broadband-test). NOTE: You’ll need a password to unlock the zip file, that password is: https://www.auditmypc.com
After installing this on your website, simply visit:
[your website address]/speedtest/index.html
Note: if you want speeds test results (speeds, time, ip address of visitor, etc) to be recorded, then make sure to allow speeds.log to be written to. If you don’t care about logging, then do nothing – the broadband speed test is configured to work regardless.
That’s all there is to it! Your broadband speed test should be up and running!
Note for users of WordPress: You can use a flash player plugin for WordPress like Kimili Flash Embed and reduce it all to one line.
Credit for the Broadband Test
Please make sure to give me credit as requested above – if you don’t, then simply don’t use the test. These tests have a time out period (about one year) which helps me keep applications up to date; If you are on our mailing list (see our Security Information / Updates page), you’ll be notified of new versions and avoid having the test stop working.
Broadband Speedtest Support and Help!
Need help or having a hard time installing your new speedtest? If so, leave a comment below and I’ll do my best to help. Note, I do all this for free and my time is limited, so you’ll have to be understanding :)
TIP: You can change the appearance of the test to fit your needs, so feel free to modify the width and height as needed.
I’m considering releasing the source code to this new broadband test and would love to hear your thoughts. In the past, I’ve tried releasing source in the hopes that developers would send back any changes and help to continually improve the application only to have tons of downloads and not one improvement returned.
The speed test has been updated as well as the file in which you can download (for those that want to run it on their own website).
Start button is gone … even on your site :P
please update files.
I like your internet speed test. Thanx for share it.
I like your speed tool. I’d like to put it on a commercial site and need to find out how to get authorization from you.
Thank you for a such a great tool.
Glad I found this site – I will certainly tell others about it. How accurate is it? Because I need to get on to BT about how slow my connection is. Thanks
What is the best speed test for WordPress?
Thank you for all the work you have let us all enjoy ! I think this site is great and wish that you get more coding help from your peers ! Thank You !
i want a required my computer speed and also Required to my reliance broad band speed at present my computer speed is minimum a per the computer norms
If you don’t see the start button, it’s expired and you need the latest version. If you’re on the mailing list, you’ll be notified before it expires. Drop me a comment with the site you’re hosting it on and I’ll be happy to take a look.
Any way you can make this backward compatible when a new version comes out? When a new version is released, currently running version of it breaks. (Does not show the Start button)
The results can change dramatically if you have something running in the background like a bandwidth intensive application. Before you take the internet speed test, make sure that you are no running any applications.
this is a very kool test however i did notice everytime i take the test it ,the results change i have taken the test three times in arow and the kbps on all three keep rising or lowering dramatically .
What is your site Chris?
Hi Jim, thanks very much for sharing your speed test. It has been a hit with my customers (ISP). I previously installed R1.08 and it suited the theme of my website very well. I found that today it wasn’t working and came here for the newest version and luckily you are still sharing!
I found that the colour scheme has changed and the new version clashes with the rest of my site. Is there any way to have the new version with the old palette?
Thank you. Found out the issues on my machine through ur tests.
Bump me in a day on this, will you? Thanks, Jim…
Our Windstream has been bad, your test proves it! thanks for sharing!!!
The download works fine, but I get an upload error. I have scanned the posts above, but have not seen any answers for IIS/Windows 2008 with ASP (no PHP).
Can you provide information if there are specific ports inbound to the web server that need opened in the firewall? Or do you know if this is an IIS setting in 2008 that does not allow this?
I tried running it on the local host on both Windows 2003 server (IIS6) and Windows 2008 server (IIS7) and still receive the upload error. One of your instructions said you have to rename a couple files, but no details were given. This is on ASP (no PHP installed)
No, it’s something I would have to program.
Is it *currently* possible? If so, how would I do this?
It’s all possible :)
And related to the auto-start – is it possible to disable the “Test Again” button?
hi! thanks to your free PC speed test.
Looking good. Configurable icons for ‘me’ and ‘then net’ whould be cool! Also a configurable MAX speed.
But first: I’m getting ‘Upload error!’ (on W2K8 / IIS7). Fiddled with the ACL’s but didn’t help.
(its on our LAN, thus no URL)
I am using bsnl plan 500 and speed is
bt meter says 277 kbps
esta muy inportante su servicio para testear la velosidad ect.gracias es lo que yo nesesitaba
I am using a broadband internet can you please help me out to increase the speed as it only gives me 165kbps which the company says you have 300 kbps usage i just want to get full 300 kbps internet usage can u please help me out
I’ll set one up on a test asp server and see if I run into problems. Please remind me if you don’t hear back by the 25th…
The websites I’m using your test page on are all in our private WAN, not on the Internet, so I’m not able to give you access. I don’t have pho setup on our IIS servers. Does your test page need it? I thought it was ASP. Can you please supply some tips for IIS users with problems?
No Problem Greg. Are you running php on your asp server? Also, what is the address of your website you’re running the broadband speed test on and I’ll take a look. You can mention the site and if you want it private, just mention that to and I’ll exclude the site from your comment before it’s approved.
I’ve installed this code on a couple of IIS servers in our WAN to test speed but they are only working in download direction. I’ve given IIS_user and domain users wrtite rights to the folder the test is in but still no luck – receiveing “Upload error”.
Can you please provide some advice for troubleshooting this on IIS?
I have the same problem as Krista and others I have remove all .asp files. But in the speeds.log file i dont get the speed it returns —.
i am using now 512KPBS with BSNL net. but i saw in inter net has 120 Kbs to 140 Kbs nearly. my net connection is only 60 Kbs only. in this different message are saw and confused. please tell me any 512 Kpbs internet connection how much data will be downloaded
thanking you sir.
I keep getting ‘connection refused: connect’ I have tried this on two different computers. One of them was running Windows 7 and the other was running XP. I tried it with Google Chrome and Firefox. Got the same message each time
No problem on downloading that speed test Rene, I just have to make time and stick the code up on the site. Remind me next year, will you :) (in a few weeks :)
Hello, I like the new speedtest at http://www.dslspeedcheck.org/
Do you know when we can download this version? Would be great!
very cool of you, thanks for the speed test!
removing logger.asp hepled. Thanks
In this version like the last in the mdb file it records only the download speed not the upload speed. The text file logger doesn’t not seem to want to record at all.
My first part of logger.php to strip any bad input from users:
Nothing related to the logger.php has changed in the new version of the speed test. However, if you are running PHP, then delete logger.asp.
Try that and let me know, will you :)
Thanks and have a great day!
I like your speedtest
i downloaded latest version auditmypc-fst-v108.zip, but it is not logging the speed test results.
i checked logger.php and it seems $HTTP_POST_VARS is empty.
In v107 everything worked fine.
Maybe someone know whats wrong ?
If the Start Button is not working on the speed test, then you need to download the latest version as that one has expired.
Great looking theme! I love the colorful social networking icons as well and of course, the test look awesome :) Hey, did you know you can stick a Google, Microsoft ad right on top of the test – I think you’ll find it converts very well :)
I have used your speed test links for a few years now, and have found that they are an excellent addition to any site. I have recently revamped my website and have set up a new web-page solely dedicated to your speed test, please check it out, and let me know if it meets with your approval.
We have the displayed speed test in our site and today the “Start” button is not loading for us here as well as our clients.
Please look into this so that it will again work and also supply me with your contact information.
Hey, I don’t have time right now to design a custom speed test. I just completed some major projects that spanned far more time than they should have and I’m taking a little time off from projects – a couple of months – so you’re welcome to check back then. Sorry for the delay in responding…
Is there any way to download the new DSL Speed Test?
As requested I have not heard from you. Please contact me when you have a chance.
I was looking for your E-mail but can´t find it…. would like to ask you some questions :-)
Hello Scott, I got it. I will send you an email in a few days and feel free to bump me if you don’t hear back.
Meant to say a custom speed test for a fee.
Yes I see them on the display but do not see both in the DB results
There should be upload and download speeds on that result, are you not seeing that?
No, I would not consider doing a custom speed test for free – time is of short supply!
In the database there is a field that reports the speed test results, RSresult. Please explain how that data is to be interpreted. One number for 2 different tests.
Also would you consider making a custom version for a free?
I wonder how to speed up my CP-!!
how can i get a broadband connection in my area, and how much money I needed to pay for a new connection.and monthly Charge in BDT (TK)
pls tell me
I use SAP, but i can’t get speed for SAP use.
i have already Broadband 2MBPS speed package.
please give me suggest for SAP Operate
speeds.log is not recording upload and download speeds. Other information OK.
my modem is dial up .who your having software that is high speed dial up connection speed in internet?
What company? What is the url of the failed test?
All comments are moderated here, so if you want that information private, just include that in your response.
I’ve been asked to add this cool speed test to my company’s website. It works great on my test environment (Apache, PHP) but I get an 0 kbps download and an upload error when on production (Apache, PHP). Not sure what the problem could be. Can you help?
I need this software. But I don’t How use it……
We are a hosting services provider, with a high page rank, and we are interested in using your speedtest tool. Please contact me at your convenience.
Contact me please. We are acommercial site. Customers constantly complain about our speed and would like to have a way for them to check it. Installed on my FC13 laptop perfectly and want to move to an obfuscated port on our OEL5.4 firewall.
i am using bsnl broadband how could i check my broadband use pls tell me fast ..
We would like to use broadband speed test tool for our company. Could you please tell us the detail procedure for getting authorization from you and using it ?
I am having a problem running the internet speed test. I have the required ports open thru a proxy server used as a firewall by the name of allegrosurf. I keep getting time out responses!
Ahy other info would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
How to check my downloading capacity ? 1 gb, 2 gb, 3 gb, 4 gb .
please tell me i’m waiting for your comments.
Facebook widget coming soon?
Suggestion to improve your site: add a few words at the top of the Internet Speed Test that says “requires Flash” and at the top of the Broadband Speed Test that says “requires Java”. I want to use this to test WiMax speed with an IPad (no flash available) in locations around my city.
Every now and then I find another Geek with the Spirit of sharing knowledge for the advancement of all.
I will direct my students to this site. You explain well, and I hope they become familiar with your work and you spirit.
I’d be happy to help you install the broadband speed test, but I need a web address to look at – from there I can tell you exactly what to get this up and running.
Hi i am new to this and have just starting creating my website with Microsoft office live small businesses. How do i put the speed tester on my website, i have tried copying and pasting the code but nothing happens and im not sure what else to do because i dont have much experience with creating websites.
I’m so disappointed in comcast! i pay $57.00 a month for 16 to 20 mbps and for the last month i have been getting 1 to 2 mbps!
I am running an at&t dsl 1.5 Mb modem and am operating at half speed on code download and quarter speed on upload user stay ons. So I enjoyed the test. Thanks konsop”1]]
I have just tested my line and the download speed came out as 99.9 mb/s. This seemed unlikely so I tested it again, and it came out as 111.1 Mb/sec, which seemed even more unlikely.
Yes, I did all that you said (and yes im a newbie with all this) and it asks me do download flash… yes I have that, and i followed the link and even that did not work… how would i fix this? :)
The specific message is as follows
Speed Test requires at least version 8 of Flash. Please update your client.
and thank you for your help in advance! :)
Hi Jim, please contact me I have a few sites I’d like it loaded on.
I had “upload error” too … now solved.
It was “mod_security” … something in upload data was misunderstood!
[09/May/2010:09:05:56 +0200] [*****.****.com/sid#9b54448][rid#a08c148][/spee
dtest/upload.ph p] Access denied with code 501 (phase 2). Pattern match “(?:(?
:[;|`]W*?bcc|bwget)b|/cc(?:[‘”|;`-s]|$))” at ARGS:writetext. [file

] [id “950907”] [msg “System Command Injection”] [data “|,cc”] [severity “CRITIC
AL”] [tag “WEB_ATTACK/COMMAND_INJECTION”]
Just one thing more … :D
A quick workaround for mod_security is adding the following line to
SecRule REQUEST_URI|REQUEST_HEADERS|REQUEST_HEADERS_NAMES “speedtest/upload.php” “phase:1,nolog,allow,ctl:ruleEngine=off”
… hope to be useful …
Great Speed test! I love it! :)
Can you provide more information, such as a website address and type of server – I’ll take a look and see what is going on with the broadband speed test.
I get a “Upload error” after installing and running on my server. What could be wrong?
hmmmmmmm gud speeeed
here the meter is showing that download speed is 118 kbps but i m getting just 30kbps please . is there is any way with which i increse the speed
My internet is very slow.I waster almost 1 to 2 hours in the morning because internet cannot display home page. how do i rectify this
I need this bandwidth meter. Please send me a software.
Thanks for pointing that out! This was part of the Dharma project and was indeed compiled well into the future, however, it was not our intention to release this version to the public. We’ll get that fixed asap but until then, use of this speed test shows what your speed will be in December of 2010 :)
re: Current version is v1.07 Updated 12/5/2010
Unless someone “Flashed Forward” to the future this could not be the date this version was updated.
I got the 3.1GB modem replaced as it was slow. They were kind enough to replace it but still – the test was showing some 400Kbps as download and some 60 Kbps as upload speed. I get a feeling that the ISP (Reliance of Ambani in India) is making a fool of its customers. Or do you think as the modem is wireless, this may differ according to availablity of signals etc?

Hi Jim, We have used your Java Speed Test on our site in the past and have somewhat recently reworked our site and would like to use your Speed Test again. I like the looks of the flash version, but was wondering whether that could be internationalized, specifically in Spanish as the Java one could or whether you have a Spanish version available.
That is a nice setup you have and it looks great!
The Broadband Speed Test looks for logging files, logger.asp, logger.php in that order. If it sees logger.asp, then it will try to pass the variables to that file rather than logger.php.
Solution: If you are running PHP, then delete logger.asp
I’ve got Drupal to pass the user ID from Drupal’s global variables to the logger.php file, but I’m seeing dashes (—- / —-) for the speed test results? Any idea why this is?
If I can figure that out, I’ll have a complete system set up!
Can you send me an example of your website? All comments are moderated, so simply leave a comment and let me know you want the address kept private and I’ll make sure it doesn’t get posted.
I love your Broadband speed test, but I must admit, I’m having a couple problems. First, I’ve put it on about three different servers. With no modifications, it runs fine, but the log file won’t log the speed test results. It logs everything else, but not that (running php).
Secondly, I need to pass a user ID from drupals global variables, to the logger.php file. From what I can see the post variables that are being passed to logger.php must be hard coded, along with the logger.php file name/path, into the Flash file scripting. Drupal won’t allow access to global user information, like ID, from a script running outside of itself (not in a node). If I could modify the flash app to grab the information then post it to logger.php I could use it in my log, but as it, it’s failing miserably… though I got drupal’s session (bootstrap) to load, because the logger.php script isn’t running inside drupal it’ll only report an anonymous user ID (0 or null).
I hope this makes sense… My next step is pushing things into a table as part of the drupal database. I really need the user ID and speed test results logged in order for this app to be useful for me.
Could I possibly get a copy of the flash source code / fla with action script? Am I wrong about this information being hard coded inside flash and I’m missing something in the embed? Help please :)
