How fast is your Intenet connection?

The bandwidth speed test at MSN is a handy tool to check your connection speed.

This site will tell you how fast your connection really is. I've been in libraries whose T1 line was slower than a 56k dialup modem. I have a DSL line where I work (my home) and this tool just told me I'm getting 1139 kbps (of course, I'm the only person using this bandwidth) -- which is about what I should be getting. Does your library really provide high bandwidth access?
