After 5 happy years of using Speedtest, we had to drop them this year for a 
2 reasons.

a) they tripled their price

b) their site which used to provide an excellent comparison between ISPs - 
at www.netindex.com was discontinued for some stripped down 4 country 
comparison site - http://www.speedtest.net/awards when it used have over 
120 countries.

The value of Ookla dropped significantly so we just let our license lapse 
and did what everyone else was doing and pointed our speedtest to:
and manage with this free service just fine.
