How fast do you connect?

Guest post by Michael Hardy, managing editor/daily report.

The FCC has a new tool you can use to test your broadband speeds. It measures download, upload, latency and "jitter," using two different applications, in a few seconds.

We're curious how your organizations fare. Try out the tool here, and post your results in the comments to this entry. If enough people take part over the next few days, we'll write an article summarizing the findings.
