Does any of you know of a online service where I can test the download speeds (and eventually latency) for my site, from as many different locations as possible ?

I am looking to use Amazon S3 to store userfiles - but I dont know what impact speedwise it will haveon my application.

Any links pointers info and help is greatly appreciated :-)
