Checking Internet Speed - how?

Is that a way to check download speed while browsing?
Unfortunately internet speeds/costs in New Zealand are diabolical and I keep going over my monthly cap - then its on to sloooooww connection times...

I've always used this one:

http://www.speedtest.net

Just pick the closest server and it tests it.

Google can probably give you others...might make sense to try more than one and see if they agree.

Hi from OZ.
Get the free "menu meters" you'll get a whole heap of info in the menu bar.
Once installed, go to system prefs to set up.
