    Let this sink in for a moment.

    CA3LE got a reaction from Sean in Add Cloudflare as a Multithread test server   
    I'm not really sure why it was disabled, it used to be an option.     I think there was an issue with it at some point, it was disabled and just never re-enabled.
     
    You can select cloud.testmy.net from the multithread selection now.
     

     
    Let me know how it works for you.  Thanks for pointing that out too.

    CA3LE got a reaction from Pgoodwin1 in Two different test results? B/S going on?   
    When I look at your results I see that when you're signed in you have selected the United Kingdom locale.  This sticks to your sign in, it also remembers this setting when you're not signed in.  And these settings are separate.  The way the program sees it, when you're not sign in your ID is you "COMP_ID" this is a mathematical computation on your IP address.  If you share that IP address, you'll share the comp ID.  When you sign in this switches over to using your username as the primary key.  You're still stored by comp_id but primarily stored by username.
     
    In future versions I may make it share the settings or import the settings.  For now, keep in mind that your sign in has separate settings.  Once you sign in your settings change to the settings you had set last time you signed in.

    See the UK flag next to the faster result.  Your results will vary based on the selected mirror.

    CA3LE got a reaction from Sean in Multithread mode test [STOP] and Express upload buttons are broken   
    Thank you Sean, all of those issues should be resolved now.

    CA3LE reacted to Sean in Multithread mode test [STOP] and Express upload buttons are broken   
    When a multithread test is in progress, the [STOP] button does not work properly, bringing up a 'Secure Connection Failed' error screen.  When I hover my mouse over the [STOP] button...

    ... the address shown in the status bar has a ':80' after the domain name:

     
    It affects the mobile website also, again bringing up an error screen when I touch [STOP], with the ':80' clearly in the URL it tried loading:

     
    This issue also affects the upload test on the mobile website when Multithread mode is enabled (left image).  The Express upload test also fails with Multithread mode enabled (right image):

    CA3LE got a reaction from mudmanc4 in Isn't HOSTSTATS likely to be badly skewed, by definition?   
    The same logic where more people are likely to post negative reviews than positive ones.  You're probably right, to a degree.  I think there are also plenty of people who test here on sunny days.  If that is true, it's true across the board with all providers.  They're all being judged using the same method.  In my experience, the better providers always perform better and rank higher here.  Is any of this perfect, no.  Will it ever be perfect, no.  Will I try, definitely.
     
    After TMN's recent full switch to https (SSL) settles in with the search engines I have an upgrade to the host stats pages you mention.  It aggregates a much broader range and I think it better represents the highlighted ISP, city or country's speed because it won't just be showing you the logs like it does today.  It will unlock a huge amount of information that TMN has been calculating and storing in private databases for a very long time now.    So look for that tool to become higher resolution in the near future.

    Again, as a newbie, I ask what is probably a dumb question:
     
    Isn't the speed data on any given ISP (in my case, V-Media, https://testmy.net/hoststats/vmedia#, likely to be skewed toward unfavourable results if (maybe I'm wrong about) the graph on that page shows the results of the "last 50" test, given that tests are MOST OFTEN performed when the performance of a particular ISP are "shite"?
     
    I MIGHT be mistaken.......I have been......a couple of other times!

    CA3LE reacted to netmammal in The Majestic Yosemite Hotel...beats Cuba!   
    It is ironic that you can only get 1990's era speeds at a luxury $400/night hotel, that is a short days drive from silicon valley.
    The only place I've had worse internet recently was in Cuba. (The food is just as overpriced and substandard as well BTW)

    CA3LE got a reaction from AlmightyBeanz93 in Net Neutrality and throttling of testmy.net by ISP   
    Keep in mind the adjustments to the 2010 Open Internet Order now require ISPs to be transparent about any content blocking, throttling or paid prioritization.  If you ever feel like that's happening and they aren't being transparent, please post it on the Internet for others to see.
     
    I don't expect ISPs to prioritize or de-prioritize TMN traffic any more than they did prior to 2015 when Net Neutrality was enacted.
     
    What I do expect to see is premium access to things that we shouldn't have to pay for... and extra billing for bandwidth for those services if you don't pay your ISP for a premium lane to those services.  And THAT is BS.   --- but I wouldn't expect to see that in 2018, they're just setting up the prerequisites.

    CA3LE got a reaction from mudmanc4 in Sorting Posts   
    The top posts in many forums may be "sticky" which forces them to the top even if they're old.  Look for the little pin next to the topic.
     
    After you're used to that you'll glance at those and automatically move your eyes down a few topics to see the new content for the forum you're looking at.
     

     
    see the green pins
     

     
    Some of the topics that are sticky (pinned) right now don't need to be.  When I get a moment I'll go through, revisit the topics and see what's relevant right now.  With less of them pinned will be less confusing.

    CA3LE got a reaction from Pgoodwin1 in Australian Servers?   
    TestMy.net is based in the USA but has servers across the globe.  You've been automatically testing against an array of servers closer to you in Sidney, AU. 
     

     
    See the little flag in your result details.  You can also hover over that for more details.
     
    The number of hops to display the results in irrelevant.  By the time that's happening... the test is already completed and the result is only waiting for final calculations.  Results are only sent back to TestMy.net's home for processing and logging to databases.  Switch to a US speed test mirror and you'll see the difference.
     
    Bottomline, your ISP is either blowing smoke or they're just ignorant.  In our experience here... most ISPs would love for you to dismiss TMN results.
     
    For 100 Mbps, you're not doing bad at all.

    When I was having issues a little while back I had commented out a few lines and never reverted.  Can you please confirm that it's working properly for you now?
     
    ... that would definitely explain some other emails I've recently received.
