    Internet connection speed


      I am writing a simple app that can detect if the user's computer is connected to the internet, which works fine.

      But what I need to know is, if there is a way of determining the user's internet connection speed?

      Many Thanks

          The way I do it is to place a 1MB file on the server and download it in the background when my AIR app opens.

          Calculate the elapsed time between the initiating of the request for the file and the download completion which will give you the rate of 1MB download - effectively be the connection speed
