Use Bing to Test Your Download/Upload Speeds

Use Bing to Test Your Download/Upload Speeds

Here’s a surprising development I accidentally discovered that I thought worth sharing. It’s just a tidbit of a tip, but shows yet another use for Microsoft’s Bing search engine.

Type the word ‘download’ into Bing and then complete the search (alternatively you can use the word 'speed' or 'speed test' and I'm sure there's a plethora of others).

Along with the litany of search results, right at the top Bing offers a speed test component. (Don’t laugh at my speeds – TWC is notoriously bad).
