My Favorite Internet Speed Test Software:

Internet Speed Test

The program doesn't include a help file or other user guidance to explain the Ask Expert button, which opened a browser window but only displayed the message that the page couldn't be displayed. The publisher's Web site wouldn't open, either. Internet Speed Test is offered as freeware, but its spotty performance isn't such a bargain. It'll cost you nothing to try, but it may not tell you what you want to know about your Internet connections.

We have to type a minimum of 10 characters because this is CNET. You know how they think that Windows 8 and Google chromebooks are worthwhile and the rest of the human race are dinosaurs?

You know what I mean. But this once they managed to get it right. This product is useless. Now, don't ask me for details a month after I downloaded it, tried it, and promptly uninstalled it.

Only Cnet engineers would have that kind of memory, and that would be because they think Google Chrome and Windows 8 are worthwhile. Yet their demand that I review this project just now showed up in my mailbox! Was this review helpful? During the installation my virus protection informed me that it had just quarantined adware that was at that moment attempting to install.

That's enough for me to give it zero stars, since you can't give it negative stars. I went ahead and let in finish the install and it seemed to work but I wouldn't trust the results.

I like this program since it does the job and since one does not have to go to an annoying and complicated speed test site every time he wants to see what internet speed he has.

Direct, to the point. No limits or extra steps. Click on tests, get results. I get varying results in the beginning. The test needs to be run at least twice to get a good reading on actual speeds. Tried the others and like this one the best. Login or create an account to post a review. The posting of advertisements, profanity, or personal attacks is prohibited.

Reply to this review Was this review helpful? Cons During the installation my virus protection informed me that it had just quarantined adware that was at that moment attempting to install. Pros I like this program since it does the job and since one does not have to go to an annoying and complicated speed test site every time he wants to see what internet speed he has.

Pros It's nice and small and does a nice job. But when I close the program and reopen it I get a reading of under 10 mps and subsequent readings range from low teens to low twenties.

Small download, few buttons so you can't get lost. Simply does what it needs to. The Ask Expert button goes to a website that isn't working, but that's somewhat expected on a program that's 5 years old.

When unzipped creates a file called InstantHelp which is confusing. You can create a shortcut for the desktop but why isn't one included. As with many of these speed test software 'how accurate are the results'. This one seems to give conservative results ie a bit on the low side compared to others. If you want an easy to use speed test to put on your desktop you could do a lot worse.

I use it to give me quick results but if it shows slow speeds I then check these with another speed tester. It was fast at giving the calculation.

I just didn't know what it meant. There were no recommendations one way or the other, either! Ran scans quickly with no problems. During first boot I was able to select what I wanted to open files with. I set it Firefox and it just opened my results in a tab for me. Login or create an account to post a review.
