various speeds, different browsers

3 posts in this topic

im on a clean install of windows 10 x64

 

all speedtests here and other places come back normal 103mb on my cable connection using firefox.   however internet explorer 11 & edge, when testing here at tmn will never get over 40mb speed.   that said, IE & edge test normal at speedtest . net

 

now while using windows 8.1 on this same computer firefox and IE test normal here and everywhere else.   is there some settings im overlooking in these browsers preventing normal download test results using windows 10?   i have everything that i can turned off in windows 10 that hinders my bandwidth

apparently ive found the issue.  since upgrading to windows 10 1607 - anniversary update,  speed tests using ie11 and edge are cut in half.  transfer rates when downloading large files such as drivers from NVidia are half what they should be when using ie and edge.  using firefox all speed tests and download transfer rates are what they should be.

 

that is why while using windows 8.1 all browsers on all speed sites worked fine. 

 

ive tried all the anniversary update internet fix suggestions for windows 10 but none of them work.  rolling back the update to a previous version fixes the problem in windows 10 and all browsers and download rates are as they should be.  MS needs to fix this.

I've noticed a big drop off of my speeds using Edge. I really like the browser, but it is half as fast as Firefox.
