    "Holy virus and bloatware hell!!!!"

    March 11, 2014   |   By russlsmith

    Version: Broadband Speed Test 1.3

    Pros

    The actual program looks like it might work, but wading through a 'crap hitting the fan' problem to know for sure.

    Cons

    1. Will install a josey virus in your system32 windows directory. 2. Will install an unwanted and unsecure gadget on your desktop and taskbar. 3. Will hijack your browser.

    Summary

    Hey CNET, it was a good long ride for so many years I've lost count...but it's over.

    "Test results are all over the map"

    March 14, 2012   |   By heavydude

    Version: Broadband Speed Test 1.3

    Pros

    Easy to use but that's about it.

    Cons

    Totally unreliable and inconsistent.

    Summary

    I have cable internet. I opened the program, ran the test, and got 9.71 mps. Thought that was low so I ran it again and got 13.72 mps.
    Over the next couple of minutes ran it several times and got readings of 19.14, 17.60, 19.47, 22.41.

    It seems as long as I keep the program open I get higher readings after the first low reading.

    But when I close the program and reopen it I get a reading of under 10 mps and subsequent readings range from low teens to low twenties.

    "Small, quick, easy to use!"

    January 05, 2012   |   By The_Vanguardian

    Version: Broadband Speed Test 1.3

    Pros

    Small download, few buttons so you can't get lost. Simply does what it needs to.

    Cons

    The Ask Expert button goes to a website that isn't working, but that's somewhat expected on a program that's 5 years old.

    "Does what it says tests your broadband speeds"

    October 15, 2011   |   By grahampalmer1

    Version: Broadband Speed Test 1.3

    Pros

    Simple to use and returns clear results.

    Cons

    When unzipped creates a file called InstantHelp which is confusing. You can create a shortcut for the desktop but why isn't one included. As with many of these speed test software 'how accurate are the results'. This one seems to give conservative results ie a bit on the low side compared to others.

    Summary

    If you want an easy to use speed test to put on your desktop you could do a lot worse. I use it to give me quick results but if it shows slow speeds I then check these with another speed tester.

    "I scored 4121. I have no idea what that means!"

    June 12, 2011   |   By bobber135

    Version: Broadband Speed Test 1.3

    Pros

    I have no pros to list!

    Cons

    Cons are that I wasn't told whether my rating was good or bad!

    Summary

    It was fast at giving the calculation. I just didn't know what it meant. There were no recommendations one way or the other, either!
