  4. Since day one, this has been designed for all broadband. The server-side is always connected with a minimum of 1000 Mbps. There are many servers in rotation at all times, especially if you select Dallas under Test Servers. You're usually testing on a server with nobody else testing, connected with 1000 Mbps or greater. Works awesome on my connection. Even when the server is thousands of miles away. 200 MB download test (single thread - testmy.net default) 200 MB download test with Multithread enabled If my connection were running better the multithread and single thread results would be right on par with each other. Is that a gigabit like Comcast wants me to believe? No. But those are the speeds I'm actually able to download at. I'm not complaining. Gigabit is new here and they're still building it out. Could I complain and get a credit... probably. Upload is right where it's supposed to be. The connection is also really stable. Run an automatic speed test if you want to gather your test history over time automatically.
  5. We recently signed up for the 1GB bandwidth from our ISP. We have 4 kids, plus my wife and I, TV's, etc. and based on the package options that seemed the best route. I believe we are getting well below the proper speed (around 500 MB average). I want to do a speed test, but many say they are note reliable/not designed for high speed internet. Does this site speed test work well with high speed internet connections? If so I'm going to let it run for a day and get a variety of readings to come back with. Thanks in advance.

    3G modem from "Three"

    Thanks for your great advice, I will stick with the one I have for the present, add the internal antennae, then get the B525 later in the year. You must be very frustrated getting such slow speeds even with the better router and antennae. You will be hoping 5g rolls out fairly fast to your area.

    3G modem from "Three"

    Going by what I can tell, Three UK has not obtained any additional 4G spectrum and no mention of 4x4 MIMO yet. So it's likely Three will focus more on 5G when it launches than doing a major overhaul of its 4G network. They currently have 25MHz of 4G spectrum running in 4G Category 6, which can deliver a maximum of about 188Mbps under ideal conditions. The Huawei B525 has a category 6 modem, which you will not get any benefit with the Huawei B618. For Three, I would go with the B525 - It's cheaper, has 4 Gigabit Ethernet ports (B618 has 2) and has 2 SMA antenna connectors (B618 requires two SMA to TS-9 adapters.) I currently have a pair of Wittenberg LAT 22 antennas at home, which work on 4G band 20 only as what Three uses in my area. I don't pick up any 4G signal without the antennas and also rely on a mobile repeater (StellaDoradus 900MHz) with a large 1.8m 900MHz GSM outdoor antenna to get indoor mobile 2G/3G coverage. Based on you getting just 2 bars of 4G reception, a 4G MIMO outdoor antenna would make a significant signal improvement, although I would suggest going for something like this instead of the Wittenberg I have, unless you're sure your area uses the 800MHz 4G band also. Good outdoor 4G antennas are quite expensive, mainly due to using two leads. For a test run, I suggest testing your router outside on a dry day to see what speeds you get on 4G before ordering an antenna. For example, if your 4G speeds are not much better with the router outside the front or back of the house, it could mean that those in your area who use mobile data are mainly using the 4G network. The above tests were all run on my phone. I was on my way home earlier, so pulled in to an area where I still had clear view of the local cell tower. At home, it's obstructed by a hill, which is why my home reception is so poor. These are my speeds at home with the outdoor antenna, regular followed by multithread. I don't get a 4G signal at all at home without the antennas attached.

    3G modem from "Three"

    I think you are probably right about me having the tower to myself, I doubt any other locals use mobile data, and in any case there are only a few hundred residents within 10 miles. I had a strange thing this morning, my speed dropped suddenly to less than 3 Mbps and the bars dropped to 2 on the modem. I logged on to the Router and saw that I was receiving 4G not 3G. This lasted for about 30 minutes before reverting to 31 Mbps and 3g. I Ordered a pair of Huawei antennae from Amazon, arriving tomorrow so I will see what effect they have, The signal strength meter in the Router software has 5 bars, I have the full 5 bars, but perhaps the low power 4g signal can be improved, I think that the 3g was turned off at the tower for that short period so it reverted to the low 4g signal, If the antennae make a difference I think it will be worth going for the B525,. While looking at the B525 on Amazon I noticed another higher model with a 600 Mbps capability. https://smile.amazon.co.uk/Huawei-Unlocked-Mobile-Wi-Fi-Router/dp/B073VBYFL5/ref=sr_1_11?s=telephone&ie=UTF8&qid=1550583337&sr=8-11&keywords=huawei+homefi I wonder if that gives an even stronger signal? A bit steep at £250 though Maybe the B525 and a good external antennae would be a better alternative and still be a bit cheaper. Do you have an external antennae or are your slow speeds just due to network overload?

    3G modem from "Three"

    As you are connected through a network cable to your mobile broadband router, that's probably the better Huawei B525. That is very impressive for 3G especially on TestMy. This probably means you have the mast to yourself. 😎 For comparison, the following is what I get a short while ago in 3G mode with a clear view of the cellular mast, followed by the test repeated in 4G mode: In Multithread mode, I get the same speed in 3G, but in the 30s on 4G: These results were all much higher in the past (40-60s), but no doubt dropped due to network congestion with all the customers Three signed up around here. 4G+ involves multiple band towers (800MHz band 20 and 1800MHz band 3 here) for what's called carrier aggregation. I ran a few tests from my Three phone in Donegal town earlier today to give an idea what 4G+ could deliver if it Three upgrades your area. I wish my area 4G+ enabled.

    Where Do You Live?

    Accross the bay from Dounreay nuclear power station on the North coast of Scotland. My Isp is "Three" via a 3g modem. +/- 30 Mbps

    3G modem from "Three"

    I was really pleased to find the Unlimited package at such a decent price and the speed I am getting. I have had landline, BT for years and it struggles to get more than 2 Mbps. I have looked at the E5573bs and will probably go for it when the novelty of 30 Mbps wears off I dont use the WiFi as I connect my main PC through Ethernet and my tablet, Tv and notebook are still connected to the old BT modem so I get some use out of the £25 a month I am forced to continue paying till the contract ends. I dont expect to get 4G anytime soon as I live way out in the sticks in Caithness Scotland, I am in the shadow of the current 4g signal. I do get the full 3 bars on 3G. The speed has actually improved slightly over the week I have had it and is very consistent now.

    3G modem from "Three"

    That's great to see Three UK now offer an unlimited cellular based data service. 😎 If you are using the Huawei E5573bs modem that they advertise on the Three website, I suggest upgrading it to the Huawei B525, which costs around £120. This has a much more sensitive antenna and provides better Wi-Fi coverage as well as 802.11ac, much like the router offerings of fixed line services. If the cell you're connected to is not heavily loaded, this could greatly increase the speed further, especially if it is or becomes 4G+ enabled.

    3G modem from "Three"

    Tested early morning, cost = £22 per month unlimited bandwidth. I also have a "BT" landline account that gives max 2.5 Mbps and costs £25 per month I live in a remote part of the Scottish Highlands.

    How can I see the previous speed test results?
  17. My at&t fiberoptic 1gb plan. How can I improve my speed when at&t wont allow third party gateways. I have nighthawk R8500 Manufacturer ARRIS Model Number BGW210-700 Serial Number R91NH8LJ300305 Software Version 1.8.18 I tried using IP passthrough Im paying 100$ per month.
  18. That is fantastic price. The equivalent from Euro to Dollar = $45 (unless you've already done the conversion.) I pay ~$130.00 /month for 200/5 unlimited

    Hi TMN folk

    heck,has another year flown by ? , thakfully, as 2018 wasnt my finest year , good to see tdawnaz posting again 👩‍❤️‍👨,
  22. I've been using Vultr since 2015... yeah, IBM bought softlayer and it all went to shit. Oh well, time to give them back the LAST grandfathered server... they killed the bandwidth on purpose. Deals like mine, had to die. They want all the old customers DEAD -- gone. No joke. Well, you win IBM. BYE! I never wanted to be on your platform in the first place... WAY to rich for my blood. In hindsight, I should have picked up your linode link -- you turned me on to them long before I used them.
  23. Heck I should have tossed my vultr aff ID your way Either way, nice! Was that 'old' host the same as I remember from back in the day? If so, this all started about the same time they were bought out.
  24. Bravo VULTR VPS (you get $50 free on their platform with that referral link). Edit: found a better link (above) -- I like this better because it gives you $50 to play with. All I did was move the same thing to a better host. I tested them in Dallas before... been a while, they've obviously stepped it up since then. They're kickin' ass wherever I test them actually. -- exact same configuration as before, better host. I'm building a better self auditing system that will be doing benchmarks between the servers more in the background automatically. Hopefully that will alert me in the future if a server or cluster of servers starts to under perform... hosts that continue to under perform will be marked for replacement. My users should never notice this in the future. But I may provide ways to show you that it's being done in the background.
  25. I've not been able to max out my connection for years on the Dallas server, Bravo!
  26. Dallas servers are all switched out to a different host. I put 10 new servers online in Dallas tonight. This will better parallelize tests. Basically when you test... there's an even better chance that you're testing on a server all by yourself. Also relocated DE and added a 2nd DE server, again to help parallelize. I see better results on both. Dallas for instance... TestMy.net Test ID : a_jeL_PBv I was consistently below 200 Mbps before on the same test. I see improvement, I hope you do too. 🎶 🎶
