Test Your Internet Connection With This Handy Tool
If you are looking for a new service provider, or just want to know what your options are in your area, check out this tool from cnet.com.
What The Test Does
You will be asked to enter your area code and then your ISP.
When you click "Go" during the test, a 100k file is downloaded from the CNET servers, which will calculate your bandwidth from the CNET Web Services site. Your bandwidth rate may be affected by the following factors: being located outside of the United States, performing other downloads and this test simultaneously, or executing programs that use your bandwidth to monitor other resources. Web Services does not currently list Internet access services outside of the United States. Therefore, area codes are optional for international users.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
