How do I check my actual broadband down load speed

I have a contract with Sky, part of a bundle with TV and landline telephone. My broadband speed seems to be getting slower and slower. How do I check what the actual speed is?

Try the speed test from click here
or click here or click here

There are others but I find that these give the most consistent results

I guess you don't always get what you pay for!

I suggest you use these links at different times of the day. There will be a lot of users online at peak times, such as after 6pm ( all the kids are home from school and have had their tea! ). Try it at say 8am on a Sunday morning ( if you are up that early !) and see if any faster. The speed will vary.. Type in Contention ratio in Google search to find out more.
