    I'm on GMT which is correctly shown on the web results, but is 1 hour different  (5pm > 18:00)in the csv export file
    Great if it could record my timezone
    or
    any idea how I can change the excel column?
    Thanks for a fantastic program

    Sorry about that, it's correctly offsetting your time now.
     
    I detect your timezone and then use that information to offset the server time.  There was a misconfiguration on my end that caused the 1 hour mistake.

    You can just minimize the browser or have it running in a different browser tab and just ignore it.
     
     
    I see what you're saying, it would be cool to have it in the tray, running as a task.
     
    I'm heavy in the belief that web applications will be the future of nearly all applications.  I've always geared TestMy.net toward a 100% browser experience.  
     
    The new version of TestMy.net is a full PWA.  Taking advantage of many new browser features, 100% adopted by all major browsers at this point.  In the next versions of Chrome you will be able to install TestMy.net and have it run and behave as a normal desktop application.  You can also add it to your mobile device and have a more app like feel.  It's much faster and offers offline capabilities.  For instance enabling auto resume for the automatic speed test, a feature I've always been looking to add.
     
    Testing time is near.
     
    The new functionality coming to developers in browsers ... is blurring the lines between native and web applications.  I imagine it's only the beginning.  The progression at the browser level is ramping up quickly.  Browsers are implementing cutting edge features at an astonishing rate and it's feeling like ALL of them are agreeing to standards for once.  I've been developing for the internet since the beginning, never seen this kind of progress.
     
    I've never developed for iOS, Android, Desktop etc.  Now and especially in the future ONE web application can branch across all of those platforms.  Especially when you're a single developer... it can be hard to manage even 1 code base.
     
    So I hope that in the future it's just part of the way TestMy.net works... using the latest tools I have available.    
     
    Hopefully you'll see by minimizing it... you can run it that way for over a year.

    Well, since I joined this site on...
     

     
    ...which was about ten years ago, it would probably make sense that I use the tests provided here, also... .
     
     
    I just ran one, and show these results...
     

     
    The results are real close to our "plan", and what we pay for... . 👍
     
     
    I also had my Task Manager running at the same time, and show these results...
     

     
    Couldn't the Ethernet (Receive) R:  30.5 Mbps,  be considered a reliable "check" test... if a person is concerned about the test

    The Ethernet throughput read-out can be pretty close to the actual user data throughput.  Its read-out is always a little higher as it includes overhead data, such as for routing, handshakes, error checking/correction and so on.  You can see this for the speed it shows in the other direction, i.e. the 0.3Mbps upload shown above is mainly overhead data as this test is taking place.  So around 0.3Mbps of that 30.5Mbps is likely overhead data also.
     
    If let's say you run this over Wi-Fi or there was a poor Ethernet connection, that figure could be a lot higher than the actual throughput, such as if much of the data over the Ethernet connection to the Router consists of retransmissions.  It was one thing that used to bug me with the Ookla test as it would filter out dips that accounted for less than 30% of the test duration, giving inflated test results over wireless connections. 
     
    If there's a server on the network (e.g. workplace), the Ethernet throughput will include data that occurs over the local network.  For example, Windows will periodically index network shares, Exchange databases and so on.  Windows 10 also distributes Windows updates between PCs on the same network.  Network devices that broadcast data (e.g. printers) will also add to the Ethernet throughput figure.  Then again, running an Internet speed test at workplace can also be challenging as it's difficult to make sure the Internet connection itself is idle at the time of testing.

    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.

    Google login will be temporarily disabled.  Click "forgot password" if you don't remember setting a password.
     
    Thank you for reporting this.  Seems like every so often Google updates the security with that.   Breaks my google login here every so often.
     
    This is the first time it's not connecting right back up.  Seems like they want something verified by a human and it says it can take up to two weeks.  /sigh  -- I guess I modified my logo they had on file a while back.  But it also had an alert for G+ permissions
     
    I don't really think that's the issue though.  I think that change has been sitting there for months... I just never realized that you have to hit "Submit for review." -- guess the "Save" button isn't enough for Google.
     

    Pretty much sounds like it's working on their end.  And if it wasn't... I'd really expect it to error on the initial click, not after the password is entered, verified with google and login starts to initiate.
     
    They should email me when it's done.  (again, I don't think that's the real issue.)  Until then I have an email out to Invision (the authors of the forum software here), they'll probably shed some light.

    Good eve, I love your testing and results layout... Why is Comcast saying they do not support your test site and results? Thank you! Rebecca  
    Hi Rebecca,   Thank you for the kind words.   Oh Comcast... I don't get it, they were one of the ISPs that helped make my site popular in the first place.  If you were to dig deep enough in my forum and others... Comcast techs used to refer people to TestMy.net.  Their in home techs and telephone support.  People used to start with, "Comcast phone support sent me here...", "I saw my install tech using TestMy.net when my service was installed", etc...)  I had Comcast support techs tell me (well over a decade ago) that TestMy.net is not only their "go to" speed test, it's in their training manual.  Then ookla and speedtest.net come out, giving ISPs a platform that not only works in their favor... I've been told by speedtest.net hosts it can be manipulated if you pay the company enough.   http://testmy.net/ipb/topic/28902-why-do-my-results-differ-from-speedtestnet-ookla-speed-tests/   Anyway, so now they don't accept my results because their own BS Trumps everything else.  There are still many techs that work for Comcast referring people to TestMy.net but not nearly as many.  (Comcast is only one example)  Not always the employee's fault.  They're brainwashed into believing that any results outside of their network can't be trusted.  It's not true.  I've been testing Internet since 1996, long before ANY ISP had their own branded tests from ookla (or anyone else for that matter).  My methodology is the same today as it was then and the same things apply today.  My servers are extremely fast and hosted in the BEST places... and in real data centers where the websites you visit are hosted in.  Data being served to you in much the same way as you'd download it from any source.  The other tests are not made to benefit consumers.  TestMy.net on the other hand was invented by a consumer.   None of the ISPs really seem like me, anymore... but then they still send me emails asking if they can host a TMN speed test within their network.  I tell them yes, but that the client will always have the choice to test against outside servers.  And that I must retain full access to the server to ensure that none of the testing variables are altered.  Funny... for some reason they never email back after that.  Just silence.  They don't like an unbiased opinion, they want you to test in a vacuum.  Their vacuum.   Thank you for using my service, please spread the word with your friends.  TestMy.net has always been 100% word-of-mouth. - Damon - TestMy.net
