I feel like the response time on my hosting account is extremely slow. How do I prove it?

Support says it's fine but I don't agree at all. They say site comes up in 4 seconds but that is not the whole story. The site may be contacted in 4 seconds but it takes WAY longer than that for it all to be loaded. And it's a small test site ( a template) with small graphics and should all be loaded in a matter of seconds. It's not. Even ftp is super slow. So how do I prove that my site is slow, assuming it is? What tools are available to troubleshoot this?

It varies by a lot of factors including the PC/Borwser performance. I don't mind a few seconds of difference.

There are a lot of website that has a Hosting Speed tool that will test how long it takes authoritative servers to respond to a request for your domain or host (I'm not sure if I can post the link here).
If the result is very slow, you can copy the result and send it to your Hosting provider.
