    to run an internet speed connection test, I tried searching this forum but cannot find it.

    Best to choose one in your own country. You could always Google "internet speed testers". One which enables you to choose a local server is Speedtest which has a reworked website. However the download results for me are wildly optimistic and variable, at between 13 and 35 Mbps - on a 10 Mbps line on which I standardly get 9.1-9.2 Mbps with a reliable UK tester.

    Here is another with a choice of 8 cities in the US, including one in Dallas. So that might be your first location to test. ( if you are a Texan )
    Compares both upload and download speeds.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Cool

    hi everyone, thanks to all of your reply's. I apologize if I offended any one
    with my raw sense of humour. Couldn't resist when I saw Viking33 asking
    "if you are a Texan".
    Viking33, thanks very much, the link site you gave was actually the one I had been
    searching for. The curious thing is I get a better result from East Coast cities above all,
    especially Atlanta (17000 dl/kps 490ul/kps). Dallas at 15673 dl/kps 492ul/kps and
    14126 dl/kps 484ul/kps for Seattle. Which I guess appears to be about average.
    OH , DocWatson, you are correct on your last post. (lol).

    I'm positive you didn't offend anyone, especially Viking and Doc. Me neither fer that matter - I'm a former New Yawker and used to "rough" talk. I just haven't "met" any Texans ever since our Cowboy dropped out of sight... or moved to Florida... or whatever.

    PS When having a geography discussion recently with my 5 year old grandson, he asked what's the biggest state in the USA. I immediately answered TEXAS. His 8 year old brother corrected me to say that Alaska is the largest. Learn something new every day, even from the kids.
