      A list of websites offering SPEED TESTS!

      Just thought it might be usefull to people struggling to find a decent site to run a speed test.

      Ive tried a few tests within a minute of each other and there seems to be some difference in results.

      If possible could people just list a few top sites for giving best speed test results so we can all benifit from a more accurate reading.

      Thankyou

      Not all speed tests are accurate!
      The ones listed in the "STICKY" are the "good" if not best ones!

      TStools - Connection Speedtest is one that's been recommended to me by many a ts guy and seem's to work well.

      The timed restriction on retesting is good as well, only a few minutes but most are likely to head elsewhere in that time .. some people have no patience, me, i'm fine till my line speed starts to drop ;-)

      Merry Xmas All
