    test not accurate

    I see you're getting faster speeds with the multithread speed test -- try running some larger tests with multithread enabled. Manually select between 100 to 200 MB on the download test.
  2. That's nice, call me an idiot. I love giving people a free service and then being called an idiot, fun times. If you hit email on the results page it should send the details of that test, like this. After you click the Email button on the results page, do you see the result details being populated with information like in my screenshot? If your email client is like mine it will group those messages together. But looking at them, you should see the test details.
  3. There isn't a conspiracy. Keep in mind Kiwegapawa, I'm literally one guy in my basement. I'm not involved with any ISPs. In the past I have given ISPs customized tools to better help their customers but you always know what's going on when you test here. There is no favoritism or bias. I DEFINITELY don't delete your results unless they are obviously in error... I do scan results frequently and look for anomalies. If you average 5 Mbps and then all of a sudden you get a 300 Mbps result I gather information from your result to help me understand why it may have happened and work to prevent it in the future. Those results continually become less frequent. (Keeping this in here because it may help someone else in a different situation.) Something catches my eye and it may be the explanation for the missing results. They might not be missing, they might just not be connected to your username. Did you possibly change anything with your modem during that period? Did you put it on a different router or directly to the computer? Basically, did the MAC address of the device it's connected to change? This could cause your IP to change. You were logged out during that period, if your IP changed then the computer ID also changed and then wouldn't be tied to your results unless you've logged a result under that IP. If you think this is possible, TestMy.net does have record of this and in the future you'll be able to see all of that. I actually can't even easily see that myself, I'd need to look at the program to remember how to query it from the database. But it's being logged. Every time your IP changes, signed in or not, it keeps all of those logged. You can see for instance, "on Wed at 2:33a your IP changed from ______ to _______" Never mind, I remembered a way to check for that (with the hidden extraCompID variable). Cross reference says your IP didn't change. Here's mine for reference of what it looks like when it finds that a users IP has changed. How sure are you that those results were in the database? Did you see them in the database or were you expecting to see them there after an automatic speed test run? I did have brief routing/CDN issues in that window so it's possible that the test just didn't run for a couple of cycles during that problem... then when it was resolved your next tests ran normally. When I saw the problem my main test window was fine, it only caused a frame within the window to crash but was able to be recovered as soon as the problem was resolved. I haven't been able to reproduce the error since.

    Hey codie, here's a topic that will help... Another older topic... Let me know how it works out for you.
  5. By the way, if you change your DNS settings on your router (instead of the device itself) it will populate to all of your devices. Just make sure the devices are defaulting to the router IP for DNS.
  6. I always use Google's. 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 It's not going to make your connection faster. What can will do it make your DNS lookup faster and more reliable. Google's DNS also updates quickly to any changes that webmasters out there make. DNS is the lookup of the domain name, which then points it to the IP of the server. The speed between the server and you has nothing to do with DNS. When you route your DNS through anyone, keep in mind that they could spy on you with that. Read Google's Public DNS Privacy - https://developers.google.com/speed/public-dns/privacy But look at this. https://1.1.1.1/ Cloudflare Promises Privacy - https://www.cloudflare.com/privacypolicy/ I might just have to start using cloudflare for my DNS. Doesn't stop your ISP from gathering your web history since DNS isn't encrypted. But it's good to know there's another option for fast, secure DNS; one that's audited yearly... by one of the Big Four auditors (also see KPMG wiki). Let's test them both, first with ping.

    Very true, I'll work that into the beta. Thanks for the reminder.

    Dropped tests

    Right now if the auto test encounters unresolved network issues your browser will error and end the test. A better version is coming soon. I've tested the auto speed test with the beta, unplugged the connection, plugged it back in and the test continues without any issue. Right now I'm working to make it log those occurrences. Vote on this (old) topic and you'll be notified when the beta is released.

    World results

    Hi Hachani! Thanks for being a frequent user. Sorry, there isn't a full country rank listed right now. I hope to make things easier to navigate in the next version. Although, it is possible to query that right now... just have to know the trick. I actually had to look at the code to remember how to do that. Go to https://testmy.net/list and type countrycode in the search field. Then set the minimum number of test to a higher number so only the more popular countries populate. To sort by download, upload or number of recent results click the column title. Sorting that way, the url in the browser ends up being https://testmy.net/rank/countrycode.down/2500 --- the base linking for this is supposed to be listed on the site. So you can just easily navigate to it. I didn't build that in there to be a secret, lol. I'm sorry that's not easily accessible. I'll work on that for you.

    Is my Internet speed accurate?

    I see that you have some results that are higher and some that are much lower 16922292784's Speed Test Results Does Hughes have you running through a proxy? Maybe they're processing it on their end and just relaying the information to the client. Some kind of caching mechanism. I really need to get my hands on a Hughes connection to test this. Maybe a Hughes user would be willing to let me VNC into their desktop and see first hand what's happening on the client-side. If I can witness something I can improve the test for that situation. Can you try a few multithread speed tests for me. Select a couple of US servers, save... then you can go to the download test and test as you normally would. I suggest manually selecting 25 MB and let it run (unless you think it's going to take longer than 90 seconds). I think the real problem is satellite itself, read this forum post in the hughestnet forum. https://community.hughesnet.com/t5/Tech-Support/Trying-to-make-something-work-for-tv-Hulu-Netflix-YouTube-etc/td-p/20589 Downloading raw data and streaming something are different. Streaming can become an issue with the increased latency of satellite connections. (discussing LAN... it's much worse on satellite.) http://www.ihiji.com/how-lan-latency-impacts-streaming-video/ Here's a good read >> https://broadbandnow.com/report/satellite-internet-good-enough-rural-broadband/ I see a lot of people saying that they can stream certain services like YouTube and Netflix just fine but have issues with others. Give us an example of a video you're trying to play. I hear satellite users talking about using NightShift to download streaming content for later viewing and at lower quality to say within data caps. If you try that let us know how it works for you.

    Is my Internet speed accurate?

    Are you seeing results here at TestMy.net that are higher than expected? Or are the results here lower and they're higher on other speed test sites?
  13. Note: Ideally you'll have a 0% ... meaning that your connection ran a flat line with little to no difference between readings. My office connection is usually 0-10%. TestMy.net Test ID : dJA5couwB Here's an example of a faster connection performing worse for its variance. TestMy.net Test ID : eJKLcTXG5 Personally, I prefer a connection that is stable and consistent over one that's faster and fluctuates.
  14. Welcome to testmy.net. Very smart question. Hey, maybe it's not the right way, I'm always open to suggestions... I often put them in practice if they make sense. It's what builds testmy.net. TiP Summary - Minimum :: 1.19 Mbps | Middle :: 3 Mbps | Maximum :: 12.6 Mbps round((12.6 - 1.19)/((12.6 + 1.19)/2)*100) 11.41/6.895*100 = 165% Calculating the difference of the min and max then dividing by the average of the min and max then put into a percentage. This isn't showing you how much your speed fluctuated just between the minimum and maximum... it's accounting for the average over the entire result. So on average your speed fluctuated by 165%. Hope this helps. Do you agree with the logic? Do you think it makes sense to do it that way?
