I often wonder how successful this venture has been.

 

I mean 5 x ad banners per page view and 8,542,734,000 speed tests performed?

 

Regardless of how much bull**** is involved with that number and the ridiculously low figure per ad banner, I would imagine s/he /they would be quite happy.

think the market rate right now is 15c/1000, but I can't recall what happens when there are 5 banners on the one page (i don't think it's linear revenue)

I've had slow connections get crap pings because the ads were still loading. Stupid thing to do really.

I do a lot of speedtests, and I hate adverts with a passion.

 

There are three major options:

 

OOKLA    

 

5 adverts - which can be blocked using Adblock Plus:

Click to see full size

 

with Adblock:

Click to see full size

(click to view)

OOKLA BETA

 

5 adverts - won't run with Adblock Plus  - does not require Flash

nPerf

 

No adverts, more detailed results than OOKLA

I know my connection is 200/200Mbit - I don't need a Speedtest to qualify that all the time. If I want to find out then simply downloading a Linux ISO (like, actual Linux ISO via Torrent) will qualify that for me. Free, no ads, comes with a free OS at the end instead of random pointless data wrapped in a flash applet.

I dream my connection is that fast. I would use Speedtest every day to prove it to myself if it was!!

You are a very lucky person.  smile

 

Those of us on cable are not so fortunate. This is supposed to be a 100/10 Mbps HFC connection:

 

 

This graph represents my last 4 days of testing on OOKLA.

 

Testing was done via ethernet to modem at random intervals between 8am and 12 midnight.
