Speedtest.net is a great way to check out how well your ISP performs, and more importantly, it looks really cool.
Apart from all the fancy pings and whistles, the most interesting function it offers is the ability to compare your results to others in your state, the country and the world.

Crikey wants to know — who’s getting the fastest broadband, and where?
Test your speed out and send in your results to [email protected] so that we can attempt an, admittedly unscientific, national comparison.
Tell us where you are, who your ISP is, the type of connection you have, how fast your speed is and we’ll run the results same time next week.
