Broadband Speed Test

Broadband Speed Test
I rent rooms in Hotels, when I am extremely lucky I have a broadband connection inside my room that allows me to make telephone calls using Skype.com. I want to know before I enter a room if the broadband speed is sufficient to use Skype.com.

I found a Broadband Speed test; I would like to get some feedback and opinions.

I have written many comments on the speed of internet; I find this below of little value.



This jobby does not work.

It can say about anything and still the connection is slow or fast, there seem to be only a small correlation between this and the true speed, probably because I am always sharing an internet connection.

REMEMBER THIS AND WARNING
You will be always sharing a connection in a Hotel room; at night between the hours of 7 and 11, the internet will be slower. If this is the time you want to use the internet, then you need to do test at this time of night. The fastest connections I experience are between the times of midnight and six in the morning.



I found this on a Broadband Speed Test on a web site by accident called ThaiVisa.com, which also appears to be great resource for information on Thailand.

Please tell me, what do you think, can it replace my Skype.com test.

SKYPE.COM TEST
If I were really in need of a high-speed connection, I would go to a Hotel, connect at about 8:00 PM at night to their internet connection and try to make a Skype.com and listen or experience the quality.

Here is the link to the test.

Many links of similar type test below, I want to know if this is really going to show me how fast or slow my connection is, I share connections, this should go up and down as more people are sharing the connection. What happens when I move from connection to connection, does one test that does not care where I am located?

Thanks
