I was fortunate to find this site in order to check my internet speeds.
This allows me to check speeds at regular intervals without manual intervention. Provided the service does not freeze when there is a dropout.
The internet provider (NBN National Broadband Network) in Australia refuses to accept the results a proof of speed.
I have been without WiFi and erratic service for a week and no-one can identify the issue.
The NBN is claiming there is no problem form their perspective.
The speeds are slow (<mbs/s download and ping can be over 850 -1050mb/s)
