What dowload speed testers are there for high speed connections that are relyable (is that a word)

All the speed tests I've seen are based in the US, and as such are not reliable. If your provider has an FTP site, then that might be the best test you have!

Basically, unless the speed test is at your ISP, it won't test the speed of your line, but the speed of your line AND the speed of every line between you and the server!

On the other hand, it's probably not the speed of your line you're really worried about, but how well connected your ISP is. I don't know of any tests to tell you how well your ISP is connected to the rest of the internet!
