You could try www.thinkbroadband.com. The flash speed test isn't accessible but click on speed test, then download test files. This just does a download of various size files up to 1GB then you can see how long it took and that will give you your speed. Not perfect but it works.

Subject: Accessible Broad band Speed Test?

Hi folks.

Can someone recommend an accessible broadband speed test? I used to use one at:
http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/
but it's flash buttons to select a location are no longer accessible, at least not here using JFW 11 and Firefox 3.5.

Most test I find display the results graphically.

thanks
Chris
