A long time ago, in the begging of aDSL the common problem in my country was bad download speeds, and false propaganda by the ISP's.
With that in mind I made, for a school project, in Delphi, a Windows app to help figure the REAL internet download speed.
This original app was completely in Portuguese, and today I changed that to English to be posted here.
The app is very simple, it connects by FTP to the host from a list that you can choose and them for 20s tries to get a stable connection. You can remove the 20s limit and let it download to the Windows temp directory the file you select to see what's the real download speed of your computer.
This app brought back some wonderful Delphi memories
Hope you like it.
App is signed with my PGP key.
