    I second Bandwidthplace.com :) They have a good bandwidth test, and also an upstream test, but not as accurate.

    the first one gives me a more realistic rate than the second one... but it's still wayyyyyyyy far from 55 Mbit/s!

    First site linked gives me 4Mbs + speed. I know I dont get that high of a speed. I much prefer DSL Reports speed test I think it is much more accurate and gives an upload speed test too

    When you are downloading a file from the interenet and it says something like 200kbps, what connection speed does that translate to and how do you do the conversion?
