Speedtest.net will test it. My upload is currently faster than my download by a bit. I'm too lazy to call Verizon to get it fixed.

Torrents. Download a couple popular Linux distros and let it seed. Might have good luck after a new release.

As many as you specify in the program, 1 seed = 1 downloader you're uploading to, just dont set too many seeds (uploading) or peers (downloading from) as you can bog down your router with too many connections, 200 either way should be plenty to maximise both your download and upload/whichever you desire on a popular torrent, Ubuntu is a good one.

Speedtest is ok for an approximation of your lines capabilities though torrents are more of a real world test as opposed to a synthetic benchmark, plus I hate all the ads and extra cookies, tracking etc that speedtest.net asks you to opt out of these days :sleepy:

Crazy amount of ads, this took 4 screen shots to list them all I think they got bought out a while back and since then I just haven't cared for speedtest.net, shame as it's probably the most well known and popular speed test sight in recent memory!

Check with your internet provider, for two reasons. One is they may have their own test site and software utility you can get for free. Then it contacts just their test site for testing. The other is that, no matter where you reach out, the nearest link (that is, to your provider) may actually be the limiting factor unless it is faster than any other link along the net. And if it IS the fastest, then that's what you want to know - how fast is "not limited" fast?
