Monitoring the WWW Internet Speed......

There was a website that monitored WWW Network nodes and speeds for free.
The site was taken down, and now there are only paid monitoring sites.

Has anyone come across any websites that monitors the Web's Network Nodes?

I can't see paying for something that I may only use once or twice a year.

Thanks for the links lufbra,

That's not what I'm looking for.

Basically the internet monitoring site that use to be, constantly checked the status of networks all over the world.

Thus, If I couldn't connect to some website in Tokyo Japan, Texas, or New York City, Etc........

I would go to the internet monitoring site, to check if there is a problem over there.
So, I could narrow down the possibilities that the problem wasn't related to my browser.

Example:
  • Network outage due to power failure.
  • Storm knocks out a Node
  • Slow down due too heavy use of that Node.
  • What part of the Internet was experiencing the worst or best speeds.

If you are having problems getting through to a site the Trace Route command will indicate where the problem is.

Open a command window using the cmd comand.

Find the IP address or the site you want using a Ping command eg
C:\>ping www.cybertechhelp.com

This will return the IP address followed by several ping results if the route is open.

You can then trace the route to the site with the trace route command

C:\>tracert [IP address from the ping above, without the brackets] eg

C:\>tracert 69.164.220.149

This will return a set of pings that progress along the route showing the delay at each node in the route. From this you can determine where the congestion or outage is occurring. With this information you can make an educated guess whether it is worth persisting or waiting a while and trying again.

Not exactly what you asked, but it will help you to make a decision on the situation.
