    Question testing modem speed

    I finally have a adsl connection now i would like to test if i can reach the max speed. 768/128

    Anyone know how?

    I already tried a site called speedtest where i got 80k/13k

    Which isnt the max, so other ideas or does this mean that this is the max of my conn?

    Try downloading a large file from a local server and see what speed it clocks at.

    I've never been able to reach my maximum speed of 768/128. The highest it has ever peaked is 120kb/s.

    You speed is fine for what you have really.

    120 kb/s is alot faster than 768 Megabits/s.

    Your speed should top out at about 80kb/s or so.

    Just to help you get the jist of what jankerson means:

    8 bits = 1 byte
    768 kilobits (Kb) = 96 kilobytes (KB)
