Default Bandwidth Tests?

What are some of the best Bandwidth testers, on the net these days? I used to use InternetFrog.com, but it doesn't seem to have the same results as others.

Depends where you're from.

http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/ is accurate for me

I've used that, and it shows me as 438KB/s down, and 109KB/s up, but InternetFrog.com shows me at 562KB/s Down, and 147KB/s up.

I have personally used the first 3. They do produce different results but each have thier own advantage and disadvantage.

You're not always going to get the same result, speakeasy.net shows me getting 9Mb down and 1.7Mb up but I pay monthly for 10Mb down and 2Mb up. Sometime when the server isn't busy or my line isn't, I would reach 11Mb to 12Mb.
