I was just wondering if there are any programs out there/ ways to check my broadband speed it says i can get up to 8mb but i seriously doubt i am getting this.
Thanks in advance

They nearly all say Up to 8Mb (or more) - Up-to does not mean 8Mb!

This is the tester I use here if you use this one, be patient, it can take a couple of minutes or so.
