How fast am I running?

I need to find out how fast my internet is running. How do I find that out? I switched to ATT to save a buck and it's slower than a constipated elderly person.

I hooked back up to Road runner and I think I'm running 100mbps. Is that pretty fast?

Well, the reason I thought that is I went into Network Connections, clicked on Local Area Connections, hit the general tab, and it said speed was 100 mbps. I'll check that site, thanks.

You can downgrade to the standard, which is 7MB down and 512k up for $44/m alone, or less if you're bundling with other services..

God, why do these threads always get hijacked into a "look at how fast my interenet is!" thread!?!

That's on FIOS...about what I expected, as my internet has been running unusually slow recently.

Our ATT Express DSL is 556/79 at $29 per month vs Road Runner at 10320/1029 for $56. We couldn't get the upgraded AT&T out here in our area. Adios POS AT&T
