    Thank you for the clarifications and I apologize for my impatience 😟‼️ I was getting stressed out by several things and you were my only hope to get these issues resolved since my free router support ended 12/31/2018, which caught me off guard.
     I’m loving your site and hope to become an active member.
    Happy New Year,

    That made a big improvement on the ping test here to the UK server:

    The speed tests are about equal now between the two servers:

    I never thought of checking the ping latency the last day.  Usually when the speed drops below around 5Mbps, I run a ping test and trace route to check the latency.

    Give it a try now, freshly rebooted.
    I saw a terrible ping too.  As it went to reboot I noticed the ping return to normal, before the server was actually rebooted.  
    When you sent me a message about this the other day I checked it and didn't see any issues.  May have been intermittent.  Let me know if the reboot fixed it on your end.

    There was a reference to the wrong database server address.  Appeared on my end to be working because I hadn't selected one of those test types with predictive algorithm.  The regular tests I was selecting don't reach out to the database.
    Thank you for pointing that out.  It just needed to be pointed to the correct address.
    You're right, it's not rocket science.  It's computer science...
    I'll add this to my monitoring (testing those database driven links every 1 minute) so if I make that mistake again I'll be alerted right away.  I thought I had manually checked for this but I was checking the wrong URLs.  I changed the reference during a smaller crash (that I caused on the backend by stopping a repair process)... it only went down for a few seconds and I needed to then change the IP back to the correct IP.
    It takes a lot of time to reorganize TMN's databases when a crash this major happens.  Hundreds of millions of entries across hundreds of thousands of tables across dozens of databases.  It's not a simple process like most other websites may deal with... there is A TON of data and there are restrictions on how fast it can be imported.  I was pretty prepared for this incident.  Had a backup server on standby, had a new server built and on standby... restore procedure in writing... and it still took forever.  There are always unforeseen issues. 
    Thank you for reporting this, please let me know if you see anything else that needs attention.

    CA3LE got a reaction from M U S A in TestMy.net shows different results than other speed tests   
    Dear Prashanth,
    The reason why all the other tests are showing you the same is because nearly all of the testing sites run the same software. That runs on flash which isn't the best protocol for testing your connection through the browser.

    Read the following...

    Ookla tests and other flash speed tests can adjust your speed by up to 40% to offset for an unknown variable. If the variable isn't know... how can you offset for it. No matter what, they're guessing at best. TestMy is the only test of its kind in existence. And has been in development for nearly 10 years longer than Oolka (speedtest.net and nearly all other tests online).

    There could be a lot of reasons this can happen. Bad peering (routing), bad cable modem, MTU could be set wrong... TestMy's results has even been known to reflect issues with hard drives. I encourage you to browse and post in my forum. Read some of the hundreds of posts where people had the same scenario as you, something that other tests missed.... sure enough, they almost always find an issue.

    https://testmy.net/ipb/ -- post your issue and one of us will help you resolve it. Trust me, it's not my system. Hundreds of millions of tests have been ran and nobody is complaining. https://testmy.net/ipb/public/style_emoticons/#EMO_DIR#/wink.png

    No problem.
    Just crashed again briefly... this time is was the database server that runs the forum database. 
    I'll start resetting these services on a schedule every few weeks.  Hopefully that will help avoid this a little more in the future.

    Thank you so very much for responding to my post and giving me that information. I am sorry you are having issues with your database and server, but am very happy to know it isn't something wrong on my end. I will just be patient as you work it all out. Thank you again for responding and letting me know. I wish you a lot of good luck in getting everything worked out and situated. I also thank you for providing this great site for testing our speeds, it, and you, are very much appreciated.

    I am hoping someone can help me connect to testmy.net speed test site. I have used this site without problem for over a year, but tonight I ran a test, the results were much less than I usually get, so I deleted the results from my saved tests, then reset my modem. After my modem came back up, I could not connect to the site that runs the speed tests. I can connect to every other site I try, including the forum, but when I try to go to the test site, it goes to a page that just says... Connect failed: Connection refused.
    I have restated my computer, used Ccleaner to clear my cookies and cache, just as I have for years, yet when I try to get the site to load the speed tests, I get a page that says... Connect failed: Connection refused
    While I can use any other speed test site without a problem even after not being able to use this site to test my speed, and my speeds are right back to the high speed of around 250 that I expect, this is the only speed site I care to use.
    Does anyone have any ideas that might make it so I can use this site to test my speeds again?
    Thank you for any and all help you might be able to give me

    No, not at all.  You just have to think about who wrote it, Vimeo's technical department, they're IT dudes like we are.  They don't have any horse in the game so they really just want to help people and get them to get the right answer.
    The people who I'd think were in an alternate universe (at this point... didn't used to be this way) if they said that... internet service providers.  Nearly all of them.  I hope one day that changes.  I hope one day that they're delivering service so outstanding and they're so confident in its performance that they purposely refer people to the most difficult internet speed test... instead of ones that favor them / make efforts to give users the best chance to score high.
    But like I said before in this forum, until then... I'm more than happy with the >1% who get it.

    Hi All!
    14 years ago I made an account here, and man oh man have things changed in that time. At the time, I had a connection at work that was "fast" compared to a lot of people in the US because I was hanging on 3 multiplexed DS3's.. at the time it provided me a whopping 45 Mbits of bandwidth. I thought I was hot stuff.. 
    Anyway, good to be back; glad to see the forum is still active.

    I purchased a Thunderport ethernet adapter today and since i plugged that in I have seen dramatic increase in stability and overall speed. I know this isnt an option for some computers but figured I'd let anyone reading know. 
    Still not anywhere near advertised speeds though...

    Yes it is still wrong, should be GMT but showing GMT+1
    I tried clearing the browser testmy.net cookie entries but still the same.
    Opened avast browser and run test, this was correct on GMT
    Back to firefox, rerun still in error. Cleared cookies for testmy.net again. This time I had a different message regarding page reloading.
    Retried the test and now correct GMT time.
    It was probably the cookies and I just did not clear them correctly the first time.

    TestMy.net is a great service.  Last night I setup Auto Test.  I set it to run every 12 hours.  The first test ran last night at 9:00 PM.  I thought it would run again this morning at 9:00 AM.  However, when I go to My Results, I don't see any tests that have ran this morning.  (It's about 10:30 AM now.)

    Thanks for your quick and thorough support.  I didn't realize I had to keep the computer running continuously, in order for Auto Test to work.  I appreciate your guide for how to keep my computer running.  Is there any option to have Auto Tests run without keeping my computer on continuously?  I can ensure the computer is on when the test is scheduled, but I'm not in a situation where I can keep my computer on continuously.

    CA3LE reacted to fasencio in Greetings from Chile - Testing "Mundopacifico Fiber 100 Mb"   
    Yes Sir It is a huge drop.
    Called several times and even posted an "official claim". But still no answer.
    During last holiday , the drop was during the whole daylight hours, max 2 mB.
    TestMynet has been very helpfull with the automated testing procedure and graphical representation of results after several 6 - 12 hours testing every half hour I have done. Thank you all .
    Every now and then , when I was present, I double checked the speed with typical Oklas Speedtest. Just to make shure that when "it drops" it efectively "drops". no matter the testing tool used.
    Just finished contracting with another ISP , MOVISTAR in this case. The new contracted download speed is not that high but I hope it will be stable. It is an ADSL
    I have no other tech options in my home town.
    In my country , Chile, It is thankfully free to opt in or out of an ISP contract with no explaining to do. Except for proportional day to day charge until the day of departure.
    If This new "slower" connection satisfies me , I am going to drop Mundopacífico alltogether, apart from following legal procedures for not answering my claims. 
    Greetings from Chile
    Have a Nice day Sir

    CA3LE reacted to Tadeusz in Upload Speed from test   
    Hello  Pgoodwin1, thank you for the reply, but the below pictures show what I am not understanding, and about calling them (my ISP Explornet the Only available where I am), there is no luck, I did call them several times, last time I called them they said that they see data speed is going to my modem at the rate between 0.5 to 1Mbps and on their end everything is fine, and when I said that I'm paying $139 for 10Mbps, they said "too bad, the only thing they can do is to lower my plan to 5Mbps so I will pay less.
    But that's not the problem even if I would go for 5Mbps I will stil not get that as it drops to near 0Mbps at times.
    That is why I'm trying to Understand/figure out what is going on with my connection, it can't be any trees or obstacles to the tower because between ~ 11:30pm and to about 3:pm the connection is usually 7 to 10Mbps but still the variation is pretty bad from minute to minute.
    For the speed difference I could blame congestion/oversold tower but why this variation in speed?
    One minute is 6Mbps and the next is 244Kbps, of course I test it with TMN because the "fake" Okla speed test shows always higher results, but since I read the whole TMN site, I know now why they show different/higher results.
    Btw, I work for a computer shop and now I tell everyone about Testmy.net and to forget about speedtest.net !!!

    CA3LE reacted to mudmanc4 in Are there any extended time tests available?   
    Testmy.net has an extended auto bandwidth test  with frequency as well as duration variables.
    I would imagine the throughput spread your experiencing is due to the ISP testing server is likely located on their system, close to you, before any external network or shaping / filtering they may have in place.
    Where testmy.net is testing the route between your ISP and the testing server.
