Hi all,

Can you tell me if there is a more accurate way to test your download speed apart from the Xtra speed test please. Maybe like an Ftp server or something similar please.

I'm asking for my brother in NZ. I have seen the Xtra speed test but was thinking something along the lines of what Internode has here http://mirror.internode.on.net/pub/test/

Gives you a more accurate idea of your connection I believe. Can't find anything on the Xtra home page to download from their servers.
