If you want to check if you really are receiving the internet speed for which you pay, you can do it with any of these speed tests.

It is quite frequent that the operators offer connection speeds in their contracts that later very few clients reach in real use. This may be due to the use of WiFi instead of wired connection, to network saturation or to a bad placement of the router, among other things.
