    Upload Speed from test

    I don’t see the 86.8 Mbps number in your results. And yes, the huge variation is pretty bad. You might call them and get them to at least make it more consistent.

    Dropped tests

    @CA3LE maybe you can answer this one

    Very big difference between testmynet vs speedtest

    The 6 MB/sec is megabytes per second. The roughly 48 Mbps from TestMy and Speedtest is megabits per second. There are 8 bits per byte, so the 6 MB/sec is the same as 48 Mbps. I notice that your test results in Results over the past week has quite a few points between 40 and 50 Mbps, with a few points here and there between 10 and 25. Pretty big variation but not uncommon on the internet these days.

    220 is about as high as I’ve ever seen on our Spectrum 200/10 Plan.So it looks like you’re there.

    World results

    @CA3LE Just a heads up - if you do some work on the Database. There’s some glitches in the world results full listing behavior. if you select “Download Speed” to sort,, page 1 comes up sorted. If you go to page 2, it’s no longer sorted by download speed. If you choose to sort on download speed on page 2, it jumps back to page 1. Also, it looks like you should be able to sort on increasing download speed by selecting download, but it won’t change from the increasing.dorection. i checked the beta version, it’s different - doesn’t have the tabs, but the sorting has the same issue

    World results

    Looks like using the Search / Full Losting tab on the world results page under Database will find whatever you need. Other than the fastest country averages listed on the Top Countries for Bandwicth tab, I don’t se a country ranking.

    Internet Speeds

    pobrechamaco’s #1 comment above is a good place to start.not sure what year that PC is. I couldn’t find the Ethernet spec for that model online. Do you have a manual for the PC ? Is it a gigabit Ethernet? I found a spec on the wireless card - it’s 802.11 b/g/n. The “n” wireless should be fast enough to get you the 200 Mbps, but I don’t know if HP’s wireless in that PC operates near the max of 802.11 n. You shouldn’t have to get a wireless USB dongle if your Ethernet card is gigabit Ethernet. If you’re using a Spectrum modem / router, the router should be the limiting item. I have a 200 Mbps Spectrum plan and get an average of about 190 Mbps as tested here with wireless. Typically I’ll get 150-170 via Ethernet . - not on a PC though. And I’m not skilled with PCs (Mac guy). I know there are some skilled PC hardware guys on here that could help. Theres plenty of possible problems in software.

    What make and model PC do you have? Are you connecting via Ethernet or Wireless?
  9. @CA3LE An alternative or addition to the present average % variance would be to show two things: 1. the max deviation from the average, 2. The average of the absolute value of all the deviations. Average (abs(Speed1 - Average), abs(Speed2 - Average),....abs(Speed19 - Average)) and maybe have a button for the option of displaying both 1. and 2. either in % or in Mbps.
  10. That’s pretty bad. Stay on them. Be polite but persistent.

    What about DNS response?

    I see ping test results of 20-40 mS, but have delays now loading web pages of 5-6 seconds (or more) where in the past they’d load in a couple of seconds. Seems like either web pages have become either 4-5 times more complex or somebody (or lots of somebodies) are throttling or putting me in ques with lower priority than some others. i believe our gov’t, by not continuing the open internet has allowed this phenomenon, and it’ll likely get worse and not better.

    What about DNS response?

    I’m starting to see delays like that too. I don’t know where in the path the delay is.

    Super low internet speed, HELP

    Run some more tests. Set up Auto Test, and get some data. Auto test is under the Speed Test tab pulldown near the top of the home page. If you have a laptop, try plugging directly into an Ethernet port on your modem/router and run a few speed tests. if you’re using wireless, get right next to your wireless router and see if it’s better.

    Hello all Hughes Net users

    @wayne nestor Hughes Net is certainly one of the most talked about providers on this site - not in a good way. Search the forums for the most recent discussions and see if anyone got anywhere with your setup

    85% Middle Variance

    There’s no incompatibility with Apple routers that I know of.
