    Broadband Speed Testing

    Did you attempt to test it for yourself before reviving a nearly 2 year old topic? If so, you made no indication.

    I agree 100% with you. I saw the thread was old and was being lazy instead of just testing for myself.

    I did not test and should have before asking, I am sorry I am new here and just looking to learn a few things.

    In the future I will make sure to try things and then ask better questions.

    I just tried it, and it still works. Here the result :

    Your Current Bandwidth is:

    2048.00 Mbps

    That Means You Can Download At 262144 KB/sec. FROM THIS SITE.

    If anyone is interested, I fixed some of the calculations and made an updated version of this script, incorporating AJAX for the download speed test:

    I am hosting it here for now with a 456KB file to test with (if anyone wants to see the script in action):
    http://rowsdower.freehostia.com/php/?page=speed_test

    Freehostia won't let me put up a file greater than 500KB in size on their free service so the current file will have to do on that sample page. In your production, however, it would be best to use a larger file (I would guess about 2MB or 3MB for a good balance of accuracy and script performance time).

    It's usually a good idea to start out with this at the VERY TOP of your CSS: * {border:0;margin:0;padding:0;}
    Seek and you shall find... basically:
    validate your markup | view your page cross-browser/cross-platform | free web tutorials | free hosting

    I am hosting it here for now with a 456KB file to test with (if anyone wants to see the script in action):
    http://rowsdower.freehostia.com/php/?page=speed_test

    Freehostia won't let me put up a file greater than 500KB in size on their free service so the current file will have to do on that sample page. In your production, however, it would be best to use a larger file (I would guess about 2MB or 3MB for a good balance of accuracy and script performance time).
    Matter of thinking.
