Test your Internet speed directly from Google home page.

Rather that remember those speed test sites, now you can check your Internet speed directly from the Google website. Simply type in search: Internet speed and you will be presented with a button Run Speed Test.

“Check your Internet speed in under 30 seconds. The speed test usually transfers less than 40 MB of data, but may transfer more data on fast connections.

To run the test, you’ll be connected to Measurement Lab (M-Lab) and your IP address will be shared with them. M-Lab conducts the test and publishes all test results to promote Internet research. Published information includes each device’s IP address, but doesn’t include information about you as an Internet user.”

It simple and fast tool and easy to remember.
