Most go to speedtest.net.

Good speed? Depends on what you want to do and how much you want to pay? 300 Kpbs is good enough for email. 2Mbps for watching video. I love my 15Mbps for HD content.

Internet is more a factor of...
-which speed package you order from your provider?
-how many users are using it when you are using it?
-what are the users doing? Streaming video? YouTube? Just email? I've seen kids gaming bring down the other user connections.
