HTH, Rob Lee -----Original Message----- From: thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org [mailto:thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org] On Behalf Of Bob Meetin Sent: Tuesday, August 21, 2012 9:51 AM To: thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: [thelist] is there a service for testing various internet/broadband speeds? I have broadband internet, but relatively slow by today's standards, 1.5 Mbps. Is there a service where you can test a site/page over some of the faster speeds, say 3Mbps, 5 Mbsp or 15 Mbps. Without upgrading (and I could actually upgrade for less money, don't want to upgrade) I would like to get a feel for what the other guy sees. Or if not a service is there a chart that might make for a guesstimate taking into account common factors that would impact page delivery speed? Meaning that this is not simple math and doubling the connection speed will not half the load speed. A news site that loads now in 30 seconds will not load in 15 seconds on a 3Mbps connection. Maybe expect 20-25, I don't know. Make sense?
