Bandwidth Testing

I download files from a site and all of a sudden the bandwidth has dropped. I used to test my ISP server is looks fine. How can I test the bandwidth or where ever there is a problem between my ISP server and the site I am downloading?

Testing requires the cooperation of the remote server.  In most cases, all you can see is the download rate for a particular file.  Many slow downs are not due to speed but to the amount of traffic on the network.

I use to check page load times.  Uptrends has servers around the world to run tests from.  If you run the test are different times during the day, you can often see the page load times change with the traffic.  Business to business sites tend to be busier during business hours while consumer sites will be busier after work and school hours.
