Speedwave Like Option?

12 posts in this topic

I've been looking for others options to test my network other than Speedtest.net; and today I finally found it!! I've never felt like the results I was getting from their tests were legit. Now I would like to capture numerous results from a group of testers, like the Speedwave that Speedtest offers. I've looked thru the settings in my account and have found only the ability to keep a running record of my tests. and I know that the results can be shared. But not sure that I could get the entire group to post their results. 

 

Thanks.

Go to TestMy.net (homepage) and look under the database menu.  This option was disabled, I just enabled it for you.

Once you enter a name you'll get an invite link that you can use to add members to the group.  Your group stats are then saved to an entirely separate database used for results comparisons.

Fast and awesome, thanks for the response and enabling that feature. 

 

I'm testing speeds across multiple platforms, browsers, and ISP packages. Also, I've been using my iPhone with the Speedtest APP. To test speeds across the cellular networks.

 

I've been getting sporadic results. Butt I'll start a new post because that can be a whole new Pandora box with answers/respones on why the variances in testing.

 

Thanks again,

Max

I tried to edit my previous post, but I was shut down by amount of time since post or other feature as stated in the auto respond. No biggie. 

 

I'm viewing across my cell phone in desktop mode, and I've found the link under "Database". However, when I click on it, this is the view I get, see attached. It seems that I'm missing the ability to actually create the group. Maybe I missed something

Just type in the name you would like the group to be, then hit return. The group is then created.

Thereafter, you can tell people [and share the group link] to type in your group name, and they will be part of the group.

 

Here is a group I created in this manner "Testing Group"

Ok, thanks. That worked, after I switched to my laptop. For some reason it didn't like the way the iPhone keyboard responded in the pop up. 

 

Thanks again.

@CA3LE could you take a look at the mobile CSS/JS when you get a moment

Thanks for the help so far on this topic guys. So I was able to create the "Test Group" and get the invite link and the history link. However, when I've copied the invite link and tried to open it in a separate browser, I get an error about needing a password for the group. Please refer to the attached screenshot. 

What my intention for the testing is to make a video for my customers and local residents to share for the test. Based on the error message, I'm hoping that the "testers" won't have to create an account to be in the test group.

 

 Thanks...

Testmy.net is a free service, no login required to test.

However in order to save, or log the results, an account is required. The test group database would be null otherwise.

 

It is possible @CA3LE has something else up his sleeve in reference to this.
