  1. Everybody please post TestMy.net speeds and not Speedtest - those are "Fake Speeds"
  2. I tried the London and Frankfurt servers. Get 55-60 London, 40-45 Frankfurt. I go one really slow test of 8.7 on Frankfurt. I'm near Cincinnati OH, so a long way from Frankfurt.
  3. Well, if your ISP plan is for 6 Mbps download, and even the modem connection speed is telling you it's only 1/2 that, I thinks it's worth some phone calls to your provider. Be patient and polite, but be persistent. It may take multiple calls from you before they get it resolved.
  4. You'll have to give us more info about the modem. Brand, model number.
  5. I would call your ISP and have them run some tests on your equipment remotely. If they say it's OK, call them back after a bit of your own testing. Be patient and polite and be persistent with them. They'll usually eventually escalate the issue. When testing linear, check that the test server you're using is one that's closest to you - link at very top of home page.

  7. Some time last year, my Time Warner Cable became Spectrum. Late last year my average download speeds for my 50/5 plan went up from about 60 Mbps to nearly 70 Mbps. This is a pretty typical result pretty much any time of day. An iPad Air 2.
  8. It looks like your TestMy tests were done using the New York server. Try using one that is closer to where you are.
  9. I couldn't tell which test server you were using. I only saw one test data point of 1.2 Mbps down. What's your plan speeds up and down? where are you?
  10. I would suggest polling some some of your friends in your local area to see how your speeds compare to theirs - ones that have the high speed 150 up plan.
  11. It looks like the test server you were using during testing was in Dallas, which is a long distance from B.C. Try using the San Francisco test server - link at top on right side.
  12. Your speeds are fast enough to stream movies. However, downloading a complete movie before you watch is a different operation. Movie files can be gargantuan. And the servers where the movies reside may be the cause of the slow rate of download, as they may be overloaded by users or have limitations on how fast each user can download in trying to balance their demands
  13. A lot of variation in your test results
  14. To understand why the OOKLA based tests don't give you real world results, on TMN home page, goes to the Extras pulldown and choose Speed Test Legitamacy. http://testmy.net/legit-speed-test.php read the info on each tab of that page.
  15. There's definitely a problem if your isp plan is 300. Plug an Ethernet cable directly from your computer to your modem (bypass wifi) and See what the results are.
