  1. I have done a lot of testing here on testmy.net and I am getting about half the speed or less that I am supposed to get. What is the standard that the cable company uses, is it a flash like speedtest.net? I know when I call support at Cox cable they will run some tests and tell me everything is fine on their end so what is the best way to go about this?
  2. I understand now that there is a big difference in what I will get with testmy.net and speedtest.net. I did a test every 5 minutes for 1 hour and my average download speed was a pitiful 12.8 Mbps and I am doing it on a laptop that is connected to the router with an ethernet cable so it takes wifi out of the equation It also looks to me like my connection is very unstable. I have a link to my test here: https://testmy.net/quickstats/jmk Cox cable is supposed to be giving me up to 50 Mbps so is this based on using speedtest.net (Which is what I have always used) or should I be getting close to 50 Mbps relying on testmy.net?
  3. Hi, I am so glad to find this site I have been looking hard for a tool that will let me monitor my internet speed over time. My main laptop has been having an issue with speed that I have diagnosed as a problem with the laptop but I have 2 other laptops that connect very good but sometimes get slow speeds also. I suspect that my ISP Cox Cable is giving me very inconsistant speeds. I am supposed to be getting 50 MBPS and when things are working right I do get 50 Mbps and sometimes more and other times the speed falls off a cliff like around 5-10 Mbps. A question I have about the "Automatic Speed Test" if I set it for "every hour" and the box next to it is set at "12 times" what does this mean? Does it mean that every hour it will test is 12 times??? I don't get it. Also if I test it say every 15 minutes over a 24 hour period will this consume a lot of data? Thanks, Joe
