Which ISP to go for ADSL line in Bedfordview

6 posts in this topic

Actually @mudmanc4 that lists all the hosts with "za" anywhere in the name.

 

Here's

http://testmy.net/list?q=ZA&sortType=down&partner=&countrySrch=1&stateSrch=&minTestCount=1000

 

I'm not sure if that functionality is even easy to find here.  I'll make sure that it's easier to find soon.

 

For now, here's a URL shortcut to make your own queries.

 

 

/countryrank   (base URL)

/us  (change this to the two letter country code you'd like to query)

/down (if you'd like to rank upload instead change this to /up)

/20000 (this is the minimum recent test count... helps filter out the less popular results, which makes for better data.  Smaller cities can appear much higher or lower because of the smaller sample size.)

 

In this way you can create the link above for ZA

 

You can also look directly at Bellfordview, ZA -- look at the ISP Rank tab

Also look at the Speed Test Log using the button below the graph.

Not very many results in Bellfordview so I would look also at the cities nearby.  Like Germiston, ZA  (I'm not sure of the area, you'd know probably know better [larger] cities to search for in your area.  You can search on TestMy.net but personally I just use google and search for "Germiston ZA testmy.net" or any other city.)

Repeat that for some other cities nearby.  If you keep seeing Telkom Internet [www.telkom.co.za] on top it can be safe to say they're your best choice in the area, especially if there is as much difference as we've seen in the first two cities.  

 

There may be less popular, faster choices so make sure you look at the Speed Test Log and tell TMN ranking to 'Show All' -- this setting will be remembered for subsequent queries.

So actually, upon closer inspection... I'd check out Internet Solutions [www.is.co.za] first, especially if you see them coming up high on the list allot on the other major cities in the area.

 

Just because the sheep mostly flock to one pasture doesn't mean the grass is actually better.  They may not have found the other meadow yet, they may just want to stick with what they know or they may just tend to go where the other sheep go. Sometimes the less popular choice is really the better one.
