Pahoo Katawah reacted to CA3LE in My Average Tool
That's awesome to hear! Saving money AND you're happier with what's being provided. You're seriously paying $50/month for all 3 services!?! Wow. Nice.
Unless you add a bunch more devices, I imagine your plan will serve you very well for a long time. They'll probably offer better packages for cheaper by the time you need more speed.

While I’ve got a fantastic home network system it’s only as good as the ISP provides. Last Fall I was paying $80/mo. for 400 Mbps. This site demonstrated the “real” situation. Now, because of you guys, I’m paying $50/mo. for Internet + TV + Phone and receiving the same approximate throughput, circa 100 Mbps, instead of 150 - 175 before, + the tv and phone!
The only downside is it’s not as much fun running the speed tests as it had been but also not nearly as stressful.
Oh, I forgot to mention that the $80 had just gone to $102 in June so I really got stuck for 1 month.

That “...strange...weird...” bug thing you captured on video. I had the identical thing last summer! Never saw anything like it so I tried to get a couple of pictures. It was through a window cause I got a thing about insects. They weren’t so good but if you don’t mind, I know a specialist who helped me identify something I was going to kill to be a predator of ground nesting hornets ? (it actually goes into the nest and eats them, I don’t know how it survives) and I would like to point her to your excellent video. I haven’t seen one yet this year.
I apologize for going off track on this website and it won’t happen again. On another note I’m testing a variety of different devices with built in web access, like a couple of very different TVs, doorbell/camera and remote chimes, vacuum cleaner, blu-ray players and iPads. I also just learned that the ISP is using 11.n and doesn’t support 11.ac. So now I have their modem going to their free router that is locked tighter than Fort Knox and my router (D-Link 895) connected to one of the Gb ports on their router. So I now have a total of 5 SSIDs (or 6) spread across the 2.5 and 5.0 bands. I’m thinking of reversing the the two routers.
Congrats on this website! I’m going to be a very busy guy here❗️ ?

Having been a Windows user for 30+ years those things were 2nd nature to me but now, having an iPad, I’m out to lunch with it❗️?
How did you do it on your iPhone? And thanks for the laugh at the end❗️

The other day I was getting pissed off at my cell phone for running so slow. I was in the city where I used to get dwnld speeds of 50+Mbps. I ran a TMN speed test and was only getting on 2 attempts 15- 20 Mbps. I realized I hadn't cleared the cache and history on the phone in awhile. I forgot to look at how much was stored before clearing but took almost 10 mins. After clearing I ran a test and the download results were 56 Mbps I guess to be a Smartphone it has to have a smart user. :)

The location information is for general reference, you won't be detected perfectly 100% of the time. IP location data I use is about 86% accurate at detecting cities in the US within a 30 mile radius.
As you're scrolling through your results you'll see icons next to the date indicating any identifiers logged with the result.
You can then select identifiers from the drop down on the right, above the result details.
Here's a video, let me know if this helps.

Remember, they are your Internet Service Provider... not local area network provider. Measuring your speed to their servers doesn't tell you much about how they're delivering your Internet.
TestMy.net is the only test results you need to present them with.
Also, because you're a member TMN has been tracking your response time (ping) in the background.

That looks really good actually. Ping isn't always an indicator.
TestMy.net is testing between the client and server. The client being your machine. The route the connection must take to do that has it running right through your providers connections. Not just testing between the server and your ISP. Between you and the server and everything between.

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,
