Hello from India!

Recommended Posts

Hello!

I'm from India and I pay for a 100Mbps connection but my results here show that at most I'm getting 70-80 Mbps. When the ISP was notified they told me that "all of our competitors rely on Speedtest by Ookla and we cannot guarantee the results from any other sites as they may block your traffic or not provide a neutral pathway", is that true? Wouldn't only ping vary in that case if suppose I'm connecting to distant servers? I've attached both the results below.

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.

Hey, Thanks for replying so fast.

I will try to go through all those tabs and test some more. The distance between those servers is around 560Km(around 350 Miles). How much exactly is a significant difference in say a 100 Mbps connection? Most times I test my speed from both the sites there's on an average 20-25Mbps difference.

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.
