What makes TestMy.net Different?

TestMy.net will provide you with real-world broadband speed test results in real-world conditions. We stand for the consumer not the ISP so TestMy does not inflate scores to make your provider look better than they are or host our test servers on the edge of ISP networks. Our speed test servers are configured to maintain quality of service for thousands of miles and are hosted in locations where many popular websites are hosted. We believe this is a more accurate representation of your true speed. Most Internet consumers don't think about the Internet service providers responsibility in peering beyond their own network. Many Internet providers send users to their own internally hosted connection test. When you surf the net, how often are you visiting a server within your hosts network?

Then why would you trust your ISP to test your Internet...

If you notice the 'TiP' or Test in Progress data on all TestMy.net download test results you'll realize that numbers can easily be altered without lying. It is common practice among other speed tests to calculate the result based on incomplete information. Other speed tests showing the maximum speed or average speeds can be HIGHLY deceiving, even experience technicians can be tricked. The fact is, if the information used to calculate the result is altered... the result is null. The final score presented to you by TestMy.net takes everything into account, from start to finish. Nothing is altered. The 'TiP' data is also shown so you can interpret the results the way you want. Remember, TestMy.net is a third party and has no vested interest in your test results. Your ISP can't say that.

Routing Distribution

Along side its own network of servers TestMy.net uses a global CDN to provide this service as close to you as possible while still being outside of your Internet providers network. If you suspect a connection issue use "Server Selection" at the top of the page to use the CDN option or test to other locations. This can help diagnose whether an issue is due to Internet routing or if it has to do with your home network and/or computer itself.

Web Browser Performance

TestMy.net is the first and only truly accurate HTML5 & PHP driven speed test online. Other online speed tests require third party applications, TMN uses only your web browser - no Flash, no Java. This makes TestMy's speed test more sensitive to browser misconfiguration and is an excellent way to highlight performance differences between browsers. Users of TMN can see all browsers are not created equally. Since early development in 1996 this speed test has never required anything more than an Internet connected web browser. Don't let other so-called "tests" fool you... TestMy.net is the original truly accurate browser based Internet speed test.

Speed Test Flow

When you request a speed test the test information is created randomly. Therefore you're not downloading or uploading any real information, this also means every TMN speed test is unique, making caching the data impossible. When your speed test starts so does a timer, precision of which is measured in ten thousandths of a second. Also, data sizes are precise to the individual byte. Once the flow of information is finished the timer is stopped and your results are calculated. Test results are calculated first with a simple equation, (size / time). The resulting number is used to calculate all of your final results. Your result is then compared against your own previous results as well as to other connections in your area, on your host and across the Internet.
