Speed Test Your Internet Service Provider!

Ever think that your internet service is sluggish and slow? Well I did, and struggled with the frustration of trying to create posts with a super slow internet, how slow exactly? Well, after finally contacting my internet service provider (Telus), it turns out it was running at a fraction of the speed I was paying for (0.37 Mbps … it’s meant to be 3 Mbps). After nearly two hours on the phone with their technical support folks they finally fixed the problem (on their end), and along the way they used a FREE public tool I thought was worth sharing – www.speedtest.net. It’s a website that will test (for FREE) the speed of your internet connection to make sure you are getting what you pay for … goodness knows your service provider won’t do it for you!
