Morning all

I was wondering how I discover at what speed my imac connects to the internet at?

When I had a PC it was no problem, but the imac just plugged into my broadband straight from the box without the need to install any software

Anyone have any ideas??

Thanks

Apparently faster connections don't give very accurate results on those speed testing sites 'cause the browser's implementation of Java becomes the limiting factor. Maybe download a large file from a reputable server such as Apple's or your ISP's and see what the speed is there.

Thanks for the info

I managed to find the speed out by typing in the IP address of my service provider

Thanks for your help
