    Incorrect speed test?

    Also, the latency times of roughly 10mSec (Rome), and 30 mSec (Milan), indicate that the route of those tests results of 80+ Mbps weren’t done over a very long distance or complex network like you’re typically getting when you test using TestMy. I’m some 700 miles from the NY server. Milan and Rome are about 300 miles apart. I get about 60 mSec latency to NY. It sounds from the 9mS delay that you’re close to Rome. Your 30 mSec lag is roughly 1/2 of what I typically get and you’re roughly 1/2 the distance from Milan than I am from New York. Your real internet performance wi

    Incorrect speed test?

    The first two tests (Ookla and nPerf) run their tests multi-threaded by default, i.e. they typically make around 8 simultaneous connections to the test server to try to saturate the connection. Ookla has a lot of test servers within the ISP networks, so there is a good chance your test traffic is not leaving their network unless you manually choose another server. To get a multithread test here on TestMy, click the "Multithread off" at the top-right to turn it on. Note that multithreaded tests don't realistically show what you would get streaming or downloading, which generally

  3. I have had it for just over a week, there is many people on it now running the beta testing. Setup is simple, as long as you use the app to look for obstructions, mine is facing NE if that helps anyone. It is fast, I have seen speeds on fast around 220 Mbps and recently on here in the 120s. As they as more satellites and more up-link stations things will get better. Right now I am seeing some 25 - 30 ms ping times, quite amazing for the trip it has to make. The dish is heated so snow and ice melt right off of it, I hope to see how the speeds are during heavy storms.

    Starlink is kicking ass..

    I gave up waiting on Cable or Fiber in my area, had DSL for many years but Frontier never did any upgrades with a less than 6 Mbps speed. Now I am on the Starlink Beta program and this is certainly going to be an option for you!

    Newbie waving hello!

    Welcome to the forum. I would search for & read some reviews recommended modems for AT&T DSL . There probably is a better one. I had AT&T DSL a long time ago . I am in town so I got the paid for speed. This may not work for you & AT&T may not offer this any more. I dropped my landline but kept DSL. This allowed me a dedicated DSL line with no filters needed. This did get the speed to the max paid speed fairly constantly. I went to cell phone only for a while. Then I went to VOIP with Skype.

    Thanks for the reply. I just like a good joke if there is one. I had seen the Bernie meme on the internet. That's how I knew who it was. I just thought there might be more when he was on the hood of a Chinese car or at least a car with Chinese writing on the door. I'm not an expert it could even be Japanese writing. I don't plan on learning either. I guess it can be good to know:

  8. Sorry I've taken so long to respond. Try doing a multithread speed test. I'd be interested to see your results.
