  1. testmy.net

    Call your ISP. Be persistent, but polite. Continue to call until they recognize there's a problem.
  2. Speed question

    Also, go to the Extras link and read the Sped Test legitimacy - all tabs
  3. Speed question

    Is the ISP testing site equally as far away as the TestMy test server? what's the ISP test using for the test software?

    Hi from SW Ohio in the US
  5. Bruce & currentlazy Run the Auto test to get some more data -link is on the TestMy home page upper middle. This will give you a better idea of what your system is doing at different times of day. if you can, plug your computer directly into the modem with Ethernet and do some testing. If you're using wireless, get as close to the wireless router as you can and see what it's doing.
  6. Good to hear. Glad they got it worked out. Usually if you hound the ISP, after a while they do something. I'm convinced some of them have policies where they don't do anything for customers with these kind of problems until you call three or more times.
  7. internet connectivity

    From your test plots it looks like you have a lot of variation
  8. Hi from Shelley From Down Under S.A

    I see that on TestMy you're getting about 7 Mbps download and about 0.4 Mbps upload when things are working OK. At least I assume that those speeds are in the range that your ISP plan says you should be getting. What is your plan speeds they said you should get? one of your tests dropped down to 1.7 Mbps download. i would be persistent with your ISP on this problem. Try to stay polite (though it's frustrating). Keep calling them until they get it resolved.
  9. Aussie, Aussie, DOH! My net dropped out, again. :(

    Hahaha. Hello from SW Ohio in the US.
  10. Increasing internet speed

    It's been approved since the 18th. Not or familiar with http injector.
  11. TMN one-shot, combined test fails to start

    Not sure what the issue is, but the combined test here at TestMy is working for me. it was working a couple of hours ago too - when you posted
  12. Hello from India!

    At 350 miles versus 50 miles, you might see a 10-20% difference, but that depends a lot on what infrastructure is between you and the TestMy server. Many times OOKLA based Speedtest servers are only 50 miles or less from the user.
  13. Hello from India!

    Read all the tabs here: http://testmy.net/legit-speed-test.php test some more on TestMy to build a database of your speeds versus time of day. Your TestMy test used the Bangalore test server. I'm not sure how far away your OOKLA Speedtest server was testing to. If there's a significant difference between the distances the two tests are running, you'll see some significant difference between results.
  14. Compare your upload speeds ! ! !

    That's pretty good for the price. Do some more testing here on TestMy to see what your real speeds are. Even if it's half of that, it's still great for $9
  15. Before changing from the 200/20 plan, I would do some more testing here on TestMy. Try the Auto Test a few times over a few days to see how things do versus time of day. Try to build yourself a database of results that indicate whether you can hope to see 200 Mbps consistently or not, and at what time of day it actually reaches the 200 average. If the average of all your testing is down closer to 100, then you can decide if it's worth the extra $ for the 200/20 plan. If possible, do some testing via Ethernet to see if the wireless results are equivalent. Plugging an Ethernet cable directly from the computer to the router would be ideal to do the baseline system capability.
  16. Depending on the time of day, you should see a fairly flat line to your New York TestMy server. The TestMy rssukts are more real world than OOKLA Speedtests. Go go to the Results link. In the table, select a download speed in the TID (test in-process data) column. It will show you what speeds were sustained during that test and how much variation there was.
  17. iPads disconnecting from wifi?

    We have several iPads here that don't disconnect (not using a century link router though). Is the signal strength indicator on the iPad good? Try looking at the signal quality of the iPad at the router. Hopefully their router software allows you to look at the signal quality of each individual wireless client at the router.
  18. Same here on RR and Spectrum. I have a 100/10 plan with Ectrum now and most of the time I'm getting about 115/10. Your tests to thw NY server shows good speed - a little higher than the 200 plan number (like mine's a little higher than the 100 plan number). You'd likely get less speed and consistency testing from where you are to Dallas. You might try the Miami test server; it may show a little better results than the Dallas server. I just tested to the Asia server and only got 24 down, 3.6 up
  19. Streaming in the Philippines, quality attainable ?

    I don't know how to do that. Some other smart people might know. Post a separate question about that and see if you get some responses
  20. Streaming in the Philippines, quality attainable ?

    Not sure which Actiontech router you have, but if it has "n" wireless it's plenty fast. 10/100 Ethernet is also plenty fast. I still use "n" wireless, and before I upgraded my router from 10/100 to 10/100/1000, I was getting 80 Mbps on both wireless and Ethernet on a 100 Mbps ISP plan. as far as what your speed problem is, ask friends with your same ISP to test with TestMy and see what their results are. That way you could isolate the problem to your side or the ISP side. if the issue is with the ISP, then I would suggest trying to get as many people as you can to complain to them.
  21. Streaming in the Philippines, quality attainable ?

    I have an iPad 2 and it'll do about 35 Mbps, so it's not the speed limiting item. In the past, on an ISP plan of 25 Mbps max, I used to get decent streaming on a Roku 2.My TestMy speeds back then ranged from 15-25 Mbps depending on time of day. It might be challenging for you if you only get 4-7 Mbps. I don't have any streaming experience at that low of a speed, so I couldn't really say what your experience would be like.
  22. speed up my internet

    Sometimes polite persistence is the only way to get people to own a problem.
  23. Deplorable service and speeds

    See if you can find others close to you with your same service. Ask them to run tests on TestMy to compare to. Also, if possible, run your computer at their place if theirs is working well.
