  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. What's your ISP plan advertised speeds up and down?
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. @CA3LE ill let you answer this. In general I know what it means.
  7. Tell us a little tale more about the issue. Where are you? What is you IPS plan max? are you using wireless or Ethernet?
  8. Are you using wireless or Ethernet? If wireless, try plugging directly into your model with Ethernet. This would eliminate any wireless issues. the Sky Broadband average download here on TestMy is 15.6 Mbps. Some users speeds are quite a bit better than you and some are quite a bit worse. I don't know if that's because they are on different ISP plans or some of their users have issues.. i would call them, and tell them that your real speeds appear to be 1/2 of your plan. Be polite and patient. Even if they just run you a quick OOKLA abased speed test that shows you're at full speed and tell you there's no issue, call them back until they start really trying to help you troubleshoot.
  9. When I look at your test results, it looks like you're connected to the closest server. So that's not an issue.
  10. How far from the TestMy test server are you?
  11. What speeds are your ISP advertised max?
  12. zbuckone - My apologies. I skimmed over your post too quickly, and failed to notice that the image wasn't yours. I only do this very part time. And LOL on "I'm working on my meaningless bullcrap"
  13. Pokoman and zbuckone. Stop posting Speedtest data. It's meaningless bullcrap.
  14. Are you using wireless or Ethernet ?
  15. Try the New York TestMy server. It really shouldn't be radically different than testing from Chicago to Dallas.
