    Also, the latency times of roughly 10mSec (Rome), and 30 mSec (Milan), indicate that the route of those tests results of 80+ Mbps weren’t done over a very long distance or complex network like you’re typically getting when you test using TestMy. 
     
    I’m some 700 miles from the NY server. Milan and Rome are about 300 miles apart. I get about 60 mSec latency to NY. 
     
    It sounds from the 9mS delay that you’re close to Rome.  Your 30 mSec lag is roughly 1/2 of what I typically get and you’re roughly 1/2 the distance from Milan than I am from New York. Your real internet performance will be worse than the 80+ Mbps as for most of your online time, you’ll be connected over much greater distances and much more complex data paths.
     
    The test methods you’re using are telling you what the maximum sustained performance you can ever expect over short simple data paths. TestMy is giving you a much more realistic measure of what your internet experience will be.

    The first two tests (Ookla and nPerf) run their tests multi-threaded by default, i.e. they typically make around 8 simultaneous connections to the test server to try to saturate the connection.  Ookla has a lot of test servers within the ISP networks, so there is a good chance your test traffic is not leaving their network unless you manually choose another server. 
     
    To get a multithread test here on TestMy, click the "Multithread off" at the top-right to turn it on.  Note that multithreaded tests don't realistically show what you would get streaming or downloading, which generally run over a single connection from the server.
     
    Google's built-in speed test is a single connection speed test (not multithreaded), but uses the new TCP BBR congestion protocol.  The TCP BBR congestion protocol is excellent at handling packet loss up to about 5% before it suffers significant speed loss.  As web servers don't have BBR enabled (or installed) by default, most websites use the legacy TCP CUBIC congestion protocol.  For this reason, TestMy does not use TCP BBR, apart from the Colorado Springs server at this time.  A few major web hosts such as Google and Microsoft and CDNs such as Cloudflare are TCP BBR enabled. 
     
    As Google's speed test uses Measurement Lab's servers, you can see how your speed compares with the widely used TCP CUBIC congestion protocol that Measurement Lab uses on its own website test: 
     
    https://speed.measurementlab.net/#/
     
    If the "Retransmission" figure is not zero, there is a some packet loss on your connection.  If the speed is close to the 80Mbps what you got on Google, then your ISP may have congestion on its peering with international links as TestMy does not have any test servers in Italy.

    Pgoodwin1 reacted to Sean in how to clear measurements from a single supplier   
    The best way is to change the identifier on the test page, such as to "Location 01".  Each test you perform will then be marked with this chosen identifier:

    On the test results page, change the Identifier field to the identifier you picked to only show tests carried out with this identifier, such as "Location 01" in this example:

     
    This will hide all your previous results apart from those marked with this identifier.  If you wish to later see your old results again, you can change the dropdown back to "All Identifiers". 
     
    This is useful if you use TestMy across multiple Internet providers, such as mobile data, workplace Wi-Fi, a mate's Wi-Fi, etc.  Just select a different location # for each place before running a test.
     
    If you really want to delete old test results, tick the checkboxes beside each result you wish to delete, then click the trash icon at the top.  For example, if I want to delete test results #2-4, I would tick these (1) and then click the trash icon (2) :

    Hi zneel,
     
    Sorry for the slow response.  I made a change to the max result.  In the future I'll increase test sizes to greater than 200MB to allow connections like yours to reach their full potential.  
     
    There is also a multithread upload test I'm developing which will be made available soon.  I imagine the upload on your connection will hit over 500 Mbps using that new test.

    Hi! Thank you both for your help.
    I solved this issue 2 days ago, I had a problem in my Windows 10 desktop and I investigated it for a few days till I found this:
     
    https://stackoverflow.com/questions/10694244/sending-data-from-windows-is-slow-over-any-network-with-high-latency-but-linux-i
     
    I wrote this on my CMD: netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=normal
    And it worked!
    Now if I run the test on my desktop pc I have more than 30Mbps and before I had 3. I don't know why Windows was configured in that way.

    Have a nice day and thank you for your time!

    Is your laptop also Windows 10?  I'm trying to differentiate your results.  If you go to https://testmy.net/mysettings you can select an identifier.  Do this on your laptop and desktop to help sort the results.
     
    Unless your problem has been resolved I'm going to guess that this is your laptop...
     
    TestMy.net Test ID : Qdf6F52b4
     
    ... and this is your desktop...
     
    TestMy.net Test ID : otO225XBt
     
    Looks like you're in Buenos Aires, is that correct?
     
    How old is that desktop computer?  Similar in age to the laptop?  Have you seen connection speeds that you'd expect to see using that computer in the past?
     
    You mention antivirus... have you tried disabling all of that stuff to see if maybe that's the thing holding you back?
     
    When all else fails you can try a refresh, reset or restore.  [Please read and understand what you're doing first.]  I would suspect software issues before I'd look to the controller, cables port or router. (based on the info you expertly provided)  Personally, I like to do a complete re-install of windows every 6 months to a year... even if I don't have issues.  As windows takes on some of the changes slated into the future I don't see this being necessary moving forward.  But right now... it still benefits from a fresh install.  Especially if you use that machine a lot.  Windows just becomes a steaming garbage pile after enough use...... again, I don't see this being an issue in the future with the changes windows has in the works.  But we aren't in the future, yet.   ... OSX and linux don't have that issue.  100% of my OSX fleet have never had the OS re-installed.  Some still working perfectly snappy for well over a decade.  My windows machines are constantly being re-installed, otherwise I feel it.
     
    And I'm not anti-windows or pro-mac... in fact I have a big fat bar of black tape covering the glowing Apple logo on the laptop I'm using right now.  I'm just pro-having a computer that works correctly.  Windows has done that for me in the past, Apple does that for me in the present but I have no allegiance to either into the future.  If the SchwettyBalls Pro (or whatever) came out and made my job/life easier I wouldn't care what the name is... as long as it does exactly what I tell it to do better than the others.
     
    Please let us know if this helps.

    No problem, this is going to take a little time to fully catch up on all that's written.  You have quite the case here.
     
    Right now (after cleaning out the responses that hughesnet people posted on this topic for some reason) I'm reading into your communication logs with your ISP.
     
    At this part,
     
     
    Uhhhhhh... that person is a moron.  35GB, over 24 hours... off the top of my head, you don't need very much to do that.  Let's do some basic math (a subject apparently unknown to that rep) for fun.
     
    35 * 1024 = 35840 MB
    35840 / 24 = 1493 MB per hour
    1493 / 60 = 25 MB per minute (rounding up)
    25 / 60 = 0.42 MB per second
    0.42 * 8 = 3.36 Mbps consistently is all it takes to push 35 GB per day in bandwidth.  So early on I'm getting an idea of who you're dealing with on the other end.  Frustrating.
     
    ... getting back to it.

    @dnjSerran I changed your username.  The issue was with the "&" symbol in your username.  This character is actually disallowed in registration... not sure how it got through so I'm going to have to do a check up on that part of the registration process.
     
    Sorry my response took longer than normal.
     
    If you'd like a different username please let me know what you'd like me to change it to.  I'm happy to help.
     
    What was happening is when you were visiting your stats it was encountering that illegal character... it looks like it was using what it could up to the point of that illegal character.  So you were pulling stats for the member "David" instead of "David & J...".
     
    For your own privacy this username is better anyways.  When I notice usernames that have real people's names I usually contact the member to ask if they'd like it changed.
     
    A reminder for anyone who needs a username change.  Simply send me a private message saying "I'd like to change my username." with the new username.  These requests are usually fulfilled within 24H.
