Is there a common recommended website that everyone uses?
Hi nartoon ,
http://speedtest.shaw.ca/ is our official option. It uses the sane backend as http://www.speedtest.net/ (powered by Ookla).
If testing from mobile devices, Ookla also offers mobile apps on all common platforms. See http://www.speedtest.net/mobile for links to their download listing on each app store.
Speedtest.net or speedtest.shaw.ca
Thanks! At least I'll be on the same page as everyone else now.
For another independent option, try fast.com, operated by Netflix.
