Aw, the little green triangle is called flash. Didn't know that.

Don't you want us to state where we reside? Or our Internet provider?

Download speed is close to spec of my Internet connection of 50 Mb/s.

Best regards,

EDIT Hey, I see there's a Dutch option too. Will test again.

Hi, thanks to all who helped us with the test for now. As Kwartet mentions it would be helpful if you can send us your IP provider speed and resident country. Dalibor

Did you unzipped the DownTester installation file? You have to create a folder and click on DownTester icon in it. Thanks

Hi Malina & Hayc59,

Looks more like a correct download of Nirsoft Downtester, but wrong sites to be tested.

Hayc59: I  said in Downloadtester "File > Add URLs List", and copied sites from the files Malina provided.

Haaaa.. according to insturctions, I should have said "File > add from file", and select the appropriate file that I downloaded.
Instead, I opened the file and copied its contents, Opened Downtester and chose File > Add URLs List, then pasted copied content.

Seems I cannot even follow simple instructions. But it worked.

Best regards,
