Although internet connection is fast enough (8 Mbps, wireless speedtest), I'm having trouble streaming radio from a certain site. Here's the peculiar thing: the stream seems to run smoothly on other ISPs, so I'm suspecting that this might be a peering issue.

How can I test my connection speed with a certain site or server?

Yes, go here. It is a wonderful speed test site for internet. You just select which server you want to test your speed with (they have servers you select from) and it tests upload speed, download speed, ping, distance from server being tested with, and more. I'm guessing this could help little bit since with this, you could test a server in the other servers general area.

UPDATE: I was researching more...

Another option that looks reliable is here. I haven't tested it, but it looks like it is exactly what you are looking for.

-1 not for a certain site or server, just measures your max speed. – BloodPhilia Jan 18 '11 at 16:45
Well I said that you could test from a list of servers. I didn't know if he wanted to check for speed to a server that was the the other servers general area which could help @BloodPhilia. – David Jan 18 '11 at 16:48
Web of Trust says that this software maker has engaged in the distribution of trojans. I don't know if I can trust that... – Pieter Jan 19 '11 at 21:26
