Essential Software: SpeedTest

This site offers a great service for testing the up and down stream speed of your Internet connection as well as the latency.

Before testing, the site allows you to zero in on the ISP server location, displaying the most likely one for you to select – this selection initiates the test.  It allows you to share you results with others.  It automatically generates specially formatted URLs for use as references to the test on different sites, i.e. hyperlink, forum or direct link.  The site also remembers previous test results, based on your IP.  You can download results in .csv format, too.
