Sounds like you're piggybacking someone else's line? :-? Not sure, my wife's the tekkie in the house.

There's always the trial and error method. Pick something to download and do it from each connection. The one that takes the least amount of time is the fastest. ;-D

I've always liked CNet's bandwidth test, but if you don't like it, just Google for another one. Obviously you'll want to make sure you're connected to the connection that you want to test. This kind of goes without saying, but just thought I'd throw it out there.

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.
