That is quite useful, so, if I want to know what speed is the ISP given I need to consider what I download.
I want to make something similar to one of those internet speed test in flash which are in internet, like this http://www.speedtest.net/
, My aim (besides learning) is to make a little application for testing my internet service and use it as proof of it for future complains. xDDDDD
So, If I download some little document from a good server, like the ones owned by universities, and I calculate the speed in bites, what I obtain is the approximated real speed. Isnt it?
I am going to do some testing. Let see.
