Exert taken from the Money Saving Expert website, the full article can be found here.

"If you're reading this guide, you probably think your connection's slower than it should be. But just how slow is it? Do a free speed test for an indication of your download (taking data from the web) and upload (sending data) speeds.

Broadbandchoices' Speed Tester is tried and tested, plus forumites love Ookla's Speedtest.net. Others to try are uSwitch's Broadband Speed Test and MoneySupermarket's Broadband Speedtest. If you can, try a few to get a range of results and record speeds at different times of the day to get a full picture. If speeds are faster at night, it's a sign your provider's busy during the day, and possibly resorting to traffic-shaping (where some connections are prioritised) to manage bandwidth."
