  4. You could try hooking directly to your modem with Ethernet and see if it behaves the same as when you're using all your other equipment. If you're using wireless and it's slower than the Ethernet connection, try testing right next to your wireless unit. If it's faster, then you are likely too far from the wireless base station. The ISP should be able to help you determine if the problem is inside your house or not
  5. There are a variety of things that could be affecting your speed - at your place or externally (local connections, at your ISP, or on other legs of where your traffic is coming and going). Give your ISP a call. Be polite, patient, and persistent. They should be able to help out. It may take more than one call.
  6. What's your ISP plan advertised speeds up and down?
  7. Hooked up to Belong NBN provider,at rated speed 25Mbps speed Fibre optic to node 100 metre copper to residence router Gateway access, and Wifi to multiple devices. Max download speed about 24Mbps falls off to less than 1Mbps at times. what is going on to cause such a drop in download service.

  9. Can i speed up my internet connection? 3mbps PLDT http://testmy.net/db/l7XmsfJLj
  10. Can you post examples? I looked through your results and didn't find any that looked like that. Maybe you deleted them. You were talking about the TiP result, within the individual test results, correct? Keep in mind that your overall score is calculated completely separate from the TiP result. The TiP minimum, maximum and average are taken from calculations that are separated from the main event. Some of your tests are running more smoothly... http://testmy.net/db/ozEV43YIP ...and some look like a struggle to get to the end. http://testmy.net/db/HvlNtJKXk Obviously, it's best if it runs like the first scenario most of the time. But if you see an extreme spike either way and then it's followed by normal plots, simply disregard it. If you have time, send me a private message with the TID so I can look at it and use the information to improve the algorithm. But keep in mind when that happens, your overall result is not affected. It's not as if the TiP result aggregates into the final result... TiP is a totally separate entity. I may put a 'report inaccurate results' link in an upcoming version to make it easier for users to flag results for a closer look. In this case, I personally never see spikes like you're seeing. It's hard to program a fix for something when you can never see it yourself. But I do learn from your results and apply it. I often spend hours going through live results to look for anomalies. TiP is already much more accurate than the original concept but I know there's always room for improvement. I think the issue on some machines is that something in your software configuration is causing intermittent delays in browser transactions. When these delays happen during the test it causes a misreporting of the TiP numbers. Probably because the times are taken so closely together. Sometimes the fact that a computer is not able to run TMN like the majority of the population is a clue. Example, my friend _____'s laptop can hardly run TMN right now. It used to run it perfectly (another clue that something new is up) and all of the other computers and devices on his network run TMN to the best of the networks ability. The issue is in loading. The test loads and runs but seems to get hung up on the forwarding around that TMN does during the test. Disabled his virus and internet security protection, because sometimes those programs have been known to cause issues... nope. Still does it. Now if this were anyone else I might dig deeper but he admits that he does things online that he probably shouldn't, opens and clicks things that he shouldn't, etc. Per my recommendation he's backing up his files and I'm going to format it and reinstall windows for him. I guarantee, when it boots up... it will no longer have that issue. Sometimes you don't even have to get to the results page to get a result at TMN. Hell, I often start a test and cancel it part way through because I got the point of how it's running just by how it loaded. Please forward me those results in the future so I can make sure it's not something I can improve on.
  11. You can manually remove a test point result. Go to Results. At the right side of the table, there's check boxes and a remove function. not sure how your extreme data point happened. @CA3LE may have an idea.
  12. Excellent, the music is so awesome and watched it many times)))
  13. Hi, I'm trying to follow my speed over some date range. And results are eg: 35, 55, 50, 40, 60, 290, 45 55 ... At some point among 20 tests I got some extreme result (like 290 in upper example). This extreme result is giving me wrong average speed. So average calculation should remove extreme maximums and minimums. Can I fix this somehow?
  14. I have a Win 7 machine (Dell 660S) that when I go to testmy.net I get 39Mbps down and it's always been pretty rock solid in the past at around 115Mbps. I have a 100Mbps internet connection. I started by testing all the usual things (new cable, different port, deleted/reinstalled driver). At that point I thought maybe the card was going bad but I decided to try one more thing. I ran Linux off a USB stick and bingo speeds were at 115Mbps. Before I reinstall 7 is there anything I can do to troubleshoot this to figure out where things are going bad? Also, all my other machines on this network both wired and wireless easily are in the 110Mbps to 120Mbps range using testmy.net. If I use dslreports.com/speedtest I DO get a speed of 120Mbps on the Dell but that is a multithreaded test and from what I've heard not as good an indication of true speeds. If any of that makes a difference in figuring this out.
  15. on vodafone 4g im getting around 30 down. if virgin do come round id probs only get around 70-100 because of my distance from cab
  16. Haha..sure mate! You are welcome anytime!
  17. To the first question, no. You can't replace the coax with fiber optic cabling with Hughesnet. It won't work. As for Hughesnet vs hardwired service from your town, it depends on whether the internet available from town is any good. Normally Hughesnet is purchased by people that have no alternative, but sometimes even the available hardwired service is sub par, like with older DSL systems. I'd ask around. If it's deemed to be better, I'd go with the hard wired simply due to it not having data caps.
  18. From the looks of the four speed tests you have performed, your upload speed is a bit low but your download speed is very good for Hughesnet. I highly doubt that a new laptop would change those results at all. With that said, only two tests of each doesn't really give a solid idea of your speeds. BTW, when testing your Hughesnet speeds use 15MB for the download tests and 2MB for the upload tests. Also, keep in mind that your speeds are being compared both Hughesnet, and the average speed for ALL providers, with most of the latter being faster than Hughesnet from the start. With that in mind, your speeds will rarely be on par with national averages, as those include things like FIOS and other high speed providers that Hughesnet can't match.
  19. Twelve dollars for 96 down and 48 up and a cap of 1100GB? WOW!!!!! That's it, I'm moving to India. LOL.

  21. When you auto test, TestMy keeps upping the file size until it takes about 5 seconds for the download or upload. That way there's enough time over which to calculate throughput correctly, without it taking longer than necessary. If if you want to set a fixed file size, run the test manually and pick the file size.
  22. how in the world do you set the Min Dwnld and Min Upload for the Auto Test? I set the Dwnld size to 10MB's and Upload to 3MB's - then when I Start the Test, it downloads a 1.3MB file, a 6.8MB file, then a 48MB file, then a 118MB file... and so on. How screwed up is this? All I want to do is PROVE that my Hughesnet service is Far Beyond CRAP... but for this site to keep trying to download beyond the size I want to do- well, it keeps using up my Allowable Data which Hughesnet so graciously gives me (20GB's) a month. Please HELP!!!
  23. I live outside Lebanon, OR and communicate through a Remote Central Office (RCO) to the main office at which point I pick up the backbone (I think) through CenturyLink (CL). CL bought out Qwest and that is the my access to the world. I have my second DSL-2740B and it has the same issue as the first one. My download speed slowly decays over time. When I reset my modem I get 3Mbps, after 24 hours I get 2.5Mbps another 24 hours and I get 2Mbps, another 24 hours and I get 1.5Mbps, etc. Reset the modem and it is back to 3Mbps Below are some modem stats, that BTW agree with the equipment at CL Downstream Upstream Line Coding(Trellis): On On SNR Margin (0.1 dB): 151 170 Attenuation (0.1 dB): 520 290 Output Power (0.1 dBm): 192 123 Attainable Rate (Kbps): 5216 956 Path 0 Downstream Upstream Rate (Kbps): 3520 576 The reason my Attenuation is so high is that I live 10,000' from the RCO. I have tested to San Francisco and Los Angeles and the same thing happens. Been fighting this for 3 moths now. Everything was fine with my OLD Westell 7500 modem, but it died. Anybody have any clues? Thanks, Fred
  24. what is your apn. bro
  25. By the looks of your recent tests, it would appear there are other types of games going on there. I would suggest there is heavy download / upload activity, which could then suggest that when you yourself see slowdowns and disconnects or time out issues, someone is torrenting data at that time. ( In other words, downloading and then sharing files / data publicly ) As normal gaming would most likely not consume ~5Mbps upload , nor effect any normal web browsing on another machine, at the speeds your connection is showing. I would also suggest he knows quite a bit more than you think.
  26. As I understand, MaxMind database is used to cross reference the location, however considering the scale of Earth and it's steady growth in ISP's and connected devices, it is not perfect. But always getting better.
  27. I am using Hathway in New Delhi, India. Plan Details: 100 Mbps, 1100 GB / month (FUP), after that 2Mbps unlimited @ Rs. 800 or $12 approx. Testmy.net Result SpeedTest Result
  28. @CA3LE ill let you answer this. In general I know what it means.
  29. Anyone explain what "My Detected Info" means? Mines shows "Country:GB, City: Ardrossan GB" I live miles from there, my local exchange is Johnstone GB
