  5. Hey Guys - I appreciate the feedback and suggestions. I'll definitely try the VPN trick if I continue having issues. Around a week ago I started having much better results, and apart from a few hiccups it has been relatively steady and around 80 Mbps. I had them schedule a technician to come out (they didnt come to my house like I thought they would... but instead must have came and done work in the area / development). We called and were told they had to adjust an amplifier that was impacting about 15 customers, so I'm guessing our entire development. Don't have much more info other than that - but it is substantially better than it has been for the past few months. This is the latency test I just took https://testmy.net/latency?gID=beug361nvs, which now looks a whole lot better. There may have been some other issues they fixed as well, but ultimately nothing was changed at my specific location. PingPlotter is also showing very minimal packet loss, if any at all. I'm hopeful it is smooth sailing now, but I will continue to monitor and report back with any other information that may be helpful to others. Thanks!!
  6. @TCas125 "My MTU is set to 1500, turned off QoS, hardwired to router. Router is separate device than modem. DNS is set to Latency test: https://testmy.net/latency?gID=pxappqtqpv" I see what your ping plotter is saying, but what's up with the latency results?? Other than to google and amazon, your latency is outrageous just about every where else! I almost wonder if you have a bum splitter somewhere causing all your irrationalities. Here's a latency test i just took.. https://testmy.net/latency?gID=oziuorfhyt

  8. From what I can see, the issue does not appear to be with your router and line to the ISP. Going by your PingPlotter graph, the packet loss does not start until the 10th hop. This clearly indicates a peering issue at their end as the last IP address before drops packets is an internal IP address, i.e. 172.16.x.x is a private address range and the next IP address showing the massive packet loss is on the public Internet. When you try Speedtest.net, try some other servers in a few different states to see if it still maxes out your connection. It is very likely that it and many other speed tests (which are actually Ookla under a custom skin) are choosing a server within your ISP, in which case your speed test traffic is not even reaching the Internet. If the Speedtest gives fast results on other servers, then there is also a very good possibility that the ISP is giving special treatment to port 8080, a TCP port that Ookla connects to its servers over. Most web traffic, including video streaming goes over port 443 (SSL) or http port 80. In this case, you may be able to exploit this by running a VPN connection over port 8080. For example, you could try getting a free 10GB account with the Hide Me VPN provider, go into settings and choose IKEv2 for the protocol, then set the port # to 8080. Then check if TestMy performs any faster over the VPN connection:
  9. OK - I have now discovered how not to waste everyone's time - I do apologise profusely!! All MY fault. Turns out there was a date range in the results options and that was what was causing the trouble. My bad - once again, sincere apologies. Thanks to everyone who looked in, best, A
  10. Now here's a strange thing - I've been doing the earlier tests via Chrome, over the weekend I used Firefox, today I've used Chrome again - my latest results don't show up on Chrome but just switched that off and switched on Firefox and lo and behold all My Results carried out via Chrome are visible. Go figure? Any ideas? Thanks in advance, A
  11. Help please. I'm new to this site and have been testing various sim cards on my router to check which provider is most consistant with LTE service and as of today there is a glitch. I've run some individual tests and started an automatic test and none of the results have been logged. My Results only show tests I completed two days ago and none of today's tests. I've logged in and out to see if that changed anything but no joy. Any ideas as to what's wrong? Thanks in advance, A
  12. Hello, I've been having some major issues with my internet for the past few months, between regular drops, large packet loss, much lower speeds, multiple hour downtimes, etc. They actually reattached the wire to my house a few months ago, as well as installed a new node (i think?) in the area - something that was supposed to increase the bandwidth in the area. The issues started a few months back when they upgraded the node, but my ISP has since been taken over by another company. I'm on a 100/10 plan. Attached are all of my testmy.net speed test results over the past 24+ hours. They range from a min of 0.15 Mbps, median of 3.51 Mbps, and max of 102.9 Mbps. The only time it was above 5 Mbps was from midnight until 8 AM. I'm currently getting ~1 Mbps on testmy.net, 90+ Mbps on speedtest, and ~3-5 Mbps on fast.com . Most other speedtests all show perfect numbers when my internet is being unusable - but occasionally even speedtest will dip down to 10 Mbps. I understand testmy.net is the most accurate representation, and my browsing experience confirms that. I consistently have trouble loading images, videos, and haven't been able to watch a twitch stream without buffering in the past 2 months (unless I set it to 360p...and even then I continue to have issues - pingplotter shows 100% PL at the final destination - maybe its just blocked there). Testmy.net speed test results https://testmy.net/stats/?t=u&l=250&q=TCas125 I use the free version of PingPlotter and consistently have 15-20% packet loss. My MTU is set to 1500, turned off QoS, hardwired to router. Router is separate device than modem. DNS is set to Latency test: https://testmy.net/latency?gID=pxappqtqpv Any thoughts or suggestions based on the data? I can only come up with peering, congestion, routing, etc... maybe signal strength/noise? I can't see signal strength on my router. I have consistent (bad) results on other devices as well. I've called the support line probably 20 times in the past month and spent hours on hold; and each time it's the same old they're working on the signal in the area, getting everything transferred over, will be done by the end of this week - yet it continues to get worse. Thanks!
  13. Looking closer I see that you're not only testing on Firefox now, right now, you're getting great results. Please let us know what changed?
  14. I'm sorry to take so long to respond. I'm deep in development on the next TestMy.net. Is this a fresh install of Firefox or have you taken time to customize it? I might assume that you're using a fresh install because of how you speak about it but assuming things has made an ass out of me too many times so I try my hardest to avoid making assumptions.
  15. you should have just use their service until contract ends since you paid for it anyway. it's better to have a backup ISP/telcom. beats being in a smalltown with only 1 option. alternatively ask your bank to retract payment to t-mobile, though i heard USA banks don't allow that because they love businesses more than your consumer rights.
  16. the ethernet card in laptop doesn't even support higher than 1Gbps...
  17. This is all I'm able to get back when testing on FireFox, it hangs for a long time on the upload and then finally gives this error.
  18. You can do quick download tests with wget from terminal using TestMy.net's URL method. wget -O /dev/null https://dallas.testmy.net/dl-10MB (-O /dev/null pipes the output to RAM instead of disk) wget https://dallas.testmy.net/dl-10MB (saves to disk, like a normal download) rm dl-* -f (make sure to clear tmp files if you saved to disk) If you want to automate the process over a period and average everything out... I recommend using the Automatic Speed Test -- TMN is specifically designed for this purpose. I think you'll find the My Average Tool quite handy for querying and averaging longer periods of time.
  19. I'm digging through your results and am only finding Chrome. Can you run a test in Firefox and paste me the results. Click on the "Share" tab on the results page. If you could capture a screen recording it would help even more. Sometimes I see a pause on my Comcast connection. Always at around 5MB in. I know that this is a symptom of the connection itself because if I leave all of the variables the same and connect my 4G... it runs smooth and never displays that symptom. Have you tested back to back... where you run a test in Firefox... see the pause, then run the same test in Chrome moments later?
  20. I recently swapped over from Chrome to Firefox and during automatic tests the upload portion of the test always stalls after only a small portion is uploaded. Selecting the test sizes manually doesn't seem to help either.
  21. I would love to have a command line utility that can be run, and output put to a file where every line can display details date of test, upload and download minimum and maximum results on a single line That way I can automate the process and get a result over a period and average this out.
  22. What can I do to speed it up?
  23. I've had Hughes net for about a week and don't like it at all. My download speed is 1mbps
  24. lmao... 50 & 100 meg results on satellite? Someones got an accelerator running. 😄
  25. Did you only test once? How were the weather conditions? I'm in Maryland, my download speeds exceed 50Mbps. Upload about 1 Mbps. Are you 5G? I'm using the same satellite over El Salvador as everyone else.. There shouldn't be such a discrepacy unless the installation wasn't performed properly.
  26. After a Week and a couple days, I'm back online. I was refused services at Spectrum, aka Time Warner Cable / Charter Communications. It was Attorney ordered and now about to go to court on the points of their Criminal Use in Bandwidth Stealing and Malicious Coding. Course they kicked me off as they already loss their Harassment Suite against me, about a decade ago. As a Subscriber complaining about the service cannot be deemed Harassment. As the Judge put it. I am left to believe it's their attorney from Missouri who been warning me of Harassment charges since after it was already thrown out of court. So point of their cover up in making false accusations, instead of taking their medicine for their criminal activities. Those activities already collected and founded in confirmed. Would be questionable if this was my very first case. But it's not and they "TWC" did not learn the first time I put 15 of their Engineers in the Federal Pen the 1st time I 2003. Their going to have to learn the hard way again. Police Report was made and now going to the DA
