Finally! some actual DSL to network

After almost three months of promises (and paying for the non-existent service), AT&T-cum-Earthlink finally brought DSL to my demarc.

Soon, it'll be time to network the house and barn, and you all have been quite helpful there.

Is there a quick and dirty tool that will allow me to measure the actual DSL link speed, to find out if I've actually gotten the bandwidth I'm paying for?

Thanks. That's just the trick.

You want to use the tool that's closest to your ISP. I have no clue where you're located.

Speakeasy is fairly close to Earthlink at least on the left coast of the USA.

PBI/SBC/AT&T has their own speed test at:


I like the Web100 tests, which give more information than just the speed:

See list of other servers near bottom of page.
