  2. I'm in Toronto and I am getting terrible results with the central server. Completely different from my first series of tests. Did not hit 20Mb/s once. I put a trouble call trough my ISP and i will wait to see what they can fiddle with before doing more tests. i still don't get it though. I want to believe that testing here is accurate but it makes no sense. As soon as I get a terrible result back, let's say 3Mb/s, I proceed to imediately download a real file, either using IE9 or using torrents and I ALWAYS get over 1 MB/s downloads and even often up to 2MB/s. If the testing is acc
  3. Will do but I've experienced the same thing on all servers before. I've tried automatic, central and all do the same thing. This is just the first time I tested it so extensively. I'm calling ISP tech support as soon as I get home.
  4. Ok, here is what I did last night: I did a bunch of tests in a row, on laptop, first wired directly to modem and then over WiFi. 25MB test download each time for both. Wired WiFi Start time 18:46 19:07 24.1MB/s 19.6MB/s 27.8 3.4 27.6 23.1 27.5 22.8 27.2 3.2
  5. oh man SO tired, switch all "b" for "B" in last 2 posts...
  6. And no, 2 Mb is not a typo, not sarcastic, it actually is really fast even though the test told me 2 seconds eariler that my speed was only 375 Kb/s. With all this though, Netlfix still has a hard time to switch to HD. Does this even make sense that certain things are fast and others are slow? Data is data no?
  7. thanks for the replies guys. i will do some more proper testing as you metionned but playing around some more, here is what I found: And the real kicker is that it seems to do this (probably to a lesser extent) even when pluged directly into the modem, no router involved! I can test a few times in a row and get 21MB/s but then after a while I will get 18 then 14, 11, all the way to 3 (!?). It will pick up again but takes a while. I really need to contact my ISP. What is even weirder is that once I do get a test that says I'm getting 3 MB/s, if I try right away to download a large
  8. hello and thanks in advance for the help! I'm posting mostly due to issues I have with speeds on mt Wii U but it seems to apply to my PC also. I'm having no issues on my PC with d/l speeds or streaming anything HD but when I test using testmy.net, within the same minute, I can get about 20Mb/s but also 5-6 Mb/s. I can try it a bunch of times in a row and can see as low as 3-4Mb or even above 20Mb. Wii U seems worse where I often get 2-3 Mb/s but if I try it afew times in a row, I can get 12Mb/s once in a while. What is going on here? i can understand Wii U being slower and
