Yes, friends. There are several free online tools for measuring exactly how fast your download and upload speeds really are. If you can get 3000 kilobits per second down (3 megabits per second) and 1500 kilobits per second up (1.5 megabits per second), then you are doing well. Similarly, if your ISP promised you faster speeds, and you are only getting 600 kilobits per second down and 150 kb/s up, then it's time to call their customer service. Test your connection now! One speed-testing service worth trying: DSLreports.com.
