Ask, and thou shalt receive:

http://www.dslreports.com/stest

Also, you can google "broadband speedtest" to bring up a bunch of others, but dslreports is the de facto standard in all things broadband.

I also use DSLreports.

Make sure you arent using any other apps that use bandwidth.

I would also run the test multiple times, on multiple servers.

People at dslreports.com often recommend using the file download test linked at the OOL forum, instead of using a java-based utility.

http://www.dslreports.com/forum/ool

Click on "OOL Speed Test" above the posts. This test will download a file of something like 64 MB and you can check your download speed in bytes (not bits) while it's downloading. After about 30 seconds you'll have a pretty good idea what your speed is, and you can cancel the download.
