    Default Checking your Broadband Speed through Intel

    This is not anything specific to Airtel as such but I hope this information will be useful to most.

    Also hope this is not "old news"

    Intel has a basic version to just check the speed of your Broadband connection. It does not give any details of your download / upload speeds.

    As I am yet to reach the 15 posts limit, I am not allowed to post any URLs so just google "Intel Broadband Speed Test" and you can see it as the first result called "Broadband Speed Test - Intel"

    Given your seniority in this forum, I suppose your viewpoint is justified. I am aware that Airtel too has its own speed check and so does speedtest.net

    Is there really any trusted source from where one can determine the true speed of their connection?

    That I have a "two speed connection" - 1 Mb/sec during daytime and 2 Mb/ sec during nighttime - I ran checks during both the periods and it did come close to the stated bandwidth speeds. As I am not a pro with bandwidth issues I assumed that there was some truth in what the Intel site displayed.

    As the speed is measured to the server connected, better to try
    different speed tests.
    1.Intel test site. ( shows varying speeds ) No D/L or U/L speed or Ping time
    Broadband Speed Test - Intel
    2.
    Most popular ( about 15 Mb data usually needed )
    Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test also ping tests.
    Choose different servers.
    3.
    With less data needed for test. : U.K. based.
    My Broadband Speed - Broadband Speed Tester.

    wait ....

    2.
    about 15 MB data required for both D/L and U/L ( best for U/L tariff plans !)
    compare with speedtest.net different servers also Ping test.
