Scroll down a bit till you see "Try a free test."

I just got my home computer and *** High-Speed cable internet. I've been goingto his site for years now, and has been very accurate. But this number is awesome. I got the same thing last night. Some of you guys try it and see if it'* pretty close to what you normally get.

All I can say is I must be fortunate enough to be close to the switch or router, because some in this town don't get half that. And I can really tell in browsing. It'* almost too fast...
