YourSpeed alternatives

There are many other on-line speed measurements on the internet. On the  *  TestMySpeed.com website you will find a large list sorted by geographical location (Note: the website has been down lately, I hope it'll be back soon!). The closer you are to the measurement's server the higher your speed will be. Many people like to go looking for the measurement that gives them the highest speed.

The results of the YourSpeed measurement cannot be compared with any other measurement, it is unique. It's the only measurement in the world that calculates your average speed to 40 websites simultaneously. An average is always lower than a highest speed. TestMySpeed.com about YourSpeed: I have found that YourSpeed is one of the best speed testing tools on the internet.

Tip: There are (un-)official usergroups for just about all providers. The websites of such usergroups usually contain helpful hints and tips about speed, and often have a dedicated speed measurement in place. A good place to search for such a usergroup is in articles on the forums and newsgroups on the website of your provider.
