First one is probably the best.
Second one looks good.
Third one is an alternative.

Which ever test you use will give different results depending on what time of the day or night you run the test, how far you are from the exchange, who else in the neighbourhood is on line. What is the nominal speed that you are paying for, are you being throttled when downloading. Send an email to your ISP tech support and ask their advice, they may suggest a particular speed test. Even different test sites will give different results when you run the tests as near as possible to each other. My current speed is 4249 Kbps and I am on up to 8MB but I have seen speeds around 1600Kbps

  Dipso 01:14 02 Jan 2007 is useful as it records a history of your speed tests as does the tester at click here.

I no longer use the ADSL Guide tester as I don't find it as reliable.

The news europe server at click here is also a pretty reliable tester.
