    My Results
  1. Agreed. But I'm talking about sync speed, not provisioned speed. How am I getting TMN speed tests results ~800kbps above my modem's reported sync rate? Results from other speed test services are reporting ~5478 kbps. Someone is wrong, and I suspect it's the results from TMN. I'd like to discover why.
  2. Well, let's assume the modem is mis-reporting its sync speed. Even on a perfect connection, 7.1Mbps is all I could possibly get on the equipment in this area. The TMN speed tests are in this range, but some of the highest are in the 7.11-7.24 Mbps range-- faster than possible in theory; and that's before we have removed the bandwidth consumed by the network overhead (or does TMN account for network overhead bandwidth?)
  3. My DSL modem is the Westell 6100G on Verizon. I signed up for the max 6Mb/768Kb plan, but I could have been secretly upgraded to the current 7.1Mb/768Kb plan they offer (Verizon has been know to make these unilateral changes) but sill wouldn't explain why the reported download sync rate is lower than the test rusults from this site. At first, I thought it might be due to compression on the DSL link, but the site says it generates random data, thus not compressible. For years I had a poor connection with a very variable/unstable connection. I now have a rock solid connection that hasn't dropped in a week, after a tech came and installed a whole house DSL filter and dedicated line for the DSL modem.

  4. I'm having problems believing the the results I'm receiving from this site. My DSL modem says the sync rate is 6208 kbps down and 768 kbps up, but the speed tests here are giving me results of saying my speed is 7024-7264 kbps down and 544-592 kbps up. How am I receiving such high download results?
