    Trying to show off my speed

    Okay, Ran those suggested downloads, clearing the cache each time. Below are the results. Also ran multiple TestMy.net speed tests from NY and TX as they had the best ping times. Those result are posted below as well. Typically I run 3 or tests on each server to get an accurate picture. Finally, I attached a pix of the AT&T speed test result from its own server in my own town to the local CO. See that I had slow upload speeds and that 50% transmits were discards (from the modem stats) I called AT&T Support. Also their STB/DVR is rebooting several times a day. They are going to send out a new STB. I also asked for proper Fiber Modem instead of the VDSL modem I have now and they are complying. My "efficiency scores" for the DVD ISO downloads are based on a calculation I found here https://www.gaijin.at/en/olsdltc.php. Of course, I had to work it backwards to figure it out, so a little trial and error, but did not take much. May not even make sense. Let's see what happens I get the new modem Friday. I uninstalled both Chrome and FireFox and a reboot, that cleared up the HTTPS EVERYWHERE issue; at least not Windows re-install. So that's it for now. Let me know what you think of the ISO download speeds compared to others you've seen. Thanks! //--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Located in California: = 18m 50s Efficiency: 3.1% http://mirrors.kernel.org/centos/7/isos/x86_64/CentOS-7-x86_64-DVD-1708.iso Located in Delaware: = 7m 40s Efficiency: 7.7% http://mirror.lug.udel.edu/pub/centos/7/isos/x86_64/CentOS-7-x86_64-DVD-1708.iso Located in Florida: = 11m 21s Efficiency: 5.1 http://mirror.atlantic.net/centos/7/isos/x86_64/CentOS-7-x86_64-DVD-1708.iso Located in Ohio: = 13m 03s Efficiency: 4.4 http://mirror.cisp.com/CentOS/7/isos/x86_64/CentOS-7-x86_64-DVD-1708.iso Located in Texas: = 14m 55s Efficiency: 3.9 http://yum.tamu.edu/centos/7/isos/x86_64/CentOS-7-x86_64-DVD-1708.iso //--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- https://testmy.net/stats/?&t=u&d=01232018&x=1&l=25&q=jjgk

    Trying to show off my speed

    Thanks for the info. Ran into a slight issue. After the clean install (w/ MS help due to a failed update) I ran the test you see. After that I imported my bookmarks, etc then started getting HTTPS EVERYWHERE errors. Now none of the speedtest sites will load. Not sure where I am going from here. But once I figure that error out, I'll test the links you sent me. Thanks, John.
  3. Ran a couple speedtests here resulting in speeds around 150Mbps on 1000Mbps fiber line from AT&T FTTP. Other sites reporting around 940 up and down now that i am using my PC. Can you suggest a server that I may use to test my speed at testmy.net. Was hoping to set up an auto test for 24 hours to check consistency. Regards, John https://testmy.net/quickstats/jjgk
  4. Was wondering if there was a way to change an Identifier on previous test results? Looking back, I used several Identifiers for the same thing.

    WOWWAY as a Provider

    Thanks, wide open west is what I was looking for. Now I just need to find a map like mudmanc4 displayed, but for Wide Open West's fiber. When I talked with them, they said they won't share a fiber map for security reasons. However I did read an article in the news that they are running fiber in the adjacent city. So, maybe there is hope. I also saw a recent article that AT&T is installing fiber in Detroit now. I guess since Google started, they all have to start. Competition is good...darn that big current merger going on
  6. In browsing North America ISP's, I noticed that WOW is missing. I am wondering if that is due to low volume of users (customer base) or general lack of interest. For the past 8 years I have been on U-verse 50/6 and over the past 10 months worth of testing on this site I average 31/4.5. TV is through DirecTV and no VoIP so there is nothing but Internet activity on the line. Backups to my service take forever. YouTube can be good one minute and then have a spinning clock the next. Netflix can have a great picture and then a grainy one. Short story, I am shopping for a new ISP in zip code 48236. We have Comcast, U-verse and WOW. Comcast has 60Mbps and claims to have fiber at the pole, but, upon looking at the cable at the pole, it appears to be the same old stuff I had 8 years ago. WOW has up to 300 and 600Mbps service but can that service be run over coax or does it need fiber at the pole...and how can I tell if it is fiber? I have tons of data to backup then, the process of scanning a lifetime of pictures to post to our family website. Most of TV is Netflix, Vudu, YouTube and OnDemand from DirecTV. All of DirectTV's OnDemand is downloaded from the Internet, not the Satelitte, so I have plan ahead if I don't want buffering issues. All the cabling in the house is CAT5e. The NVG589 router has been replaced several times. The Techs tell me my bonded pair can handle up 75Mbps and are clean and all the wiring in the house is clean. So that just leaves bad U-verse service, which AT&T tells me there are no upgrade plans for the VRAD in my area. Thoughts or ideas on WOW's service? Thanks, John
