    There was an error but what kind - I do not remember. Forgot to take a screenshot. But it did the same for firefox, chrome and IE 11.
    I cannot replicate the error now in any browser... go figure...
    Will run more single vs multi now that I can and post asap.

    Over the years reading posts, we could find more statements such as yours than not. Tech comes out, everything is awesome, tech leaves, soon thereafter, connection stinks on ice.
     
    Aside that, tech was likely testing on the ISP level network, never touching the 'internet' , or anything outside of their control.
     
    Also, check out the mirrors testmy.net uses, find one closer to you and run some testing

    @Avneez , !dea is a large cellular provider in India, over 38 million subscribers.  I would check upload speeds at different times of the day, as the network might be very congested when you are trying to upload something.
     
    Work to find the best times the content can be transferred.

    mudmanc4 got a reaction from LikeMikeScott in Cut to the chase on ISP??   
    I would imagine everything depends on the provider and region as you are already aware.
     
    As far as a page to search <my town or city> & <results>  have you used https://testmy.net/list ?
     
    Search for the town and go from there. Sure it takes a bit of 'footwork' to get the data extracted the way we want to see it. Though if I'm gathering mental data correctly, we should be seeing new features soon here at testmy.net.

    mudmanc4 reacted to CA3LE in Isn't HOSTSTATS likely to be badly skewed, by definition?   
    The same logic where more people are likely to post negative reviews than positive ones.  You're probably right, to a degree.  I think there are also plenty of people who test here on sunny days.  If that is true, it's true across the board with all providers.  They're all being judged using the same method.  In my experience, the better providers always perform better and rank higher here.  Is any of this perfect, no.  Will it ever be perfect, no.  Will I try, definitely.
     
    After TMN's recent full switch to https (SSL) settles in with the search engines I have an upgrade to the host stats pages you mention.  It aggregates a much broader range and I think it better represents the highlighted ISP, city or country's speed because it won't just be showing you the logs like it does today.  It will unlock a huge amount of information that TMN has been calculating and storing in private databases for a very long time now.    So look for that tool to become higher resolution in the near future.

    mudmanc4 reacted to CA3LE in Sorting Posts   
    The top posts in many forums may be "sticky" which forces them to the top even if they're old.  Look for the little pin next to the topic.
     
    After you're used to that you'll glance at those and automatically move your eyes down a few topics to see the new content for the forum you're looking at.
     

     
    see the green pins
     

     
    Some of the topics that are sticky (pinned) right now don't need to be.  When I get a moment I'll go through, revisit the topics and see what's relevant right now.  With less of them pinned will be less confusing.

    mudmanc4 got a reaction from Pgoodwin1 in Intermittent Drop Out   
    @Hypopyon, If this were myself, I would run the auto test, example for a two hour movie scenario:
     
     

     
    This test will run for 125 minutes, once every five minutes, testing upload and download minimum 1MB per test run, 'nfw' is selected to reserve bandwidth as were simply getting as close to a connectivity test as we can. (This means the tests will not forward to a larger test size until the test takes seven seconds.  
     
    Although I'm not up on the TTL (how long the test server will wait for a response before giving up) therefore the two hour test every five minutes, if your getting eight droputs per movie, you should catch several, in theory.
     
    Though in your case, I might be running wireshark , (packet capture) to view the responses during the loss, which can be a bit overwhelming to learn.

    mudmanc4 got a reaction from CA3LE in Australian Servers?   
    @barney79, Welcome to testmy.net forum.
     
    If your testing to a specific server such as the testmy.net Australian server, and the test is originated from the same continent,  that is where the test is run. Full stop.
     
    The reporting server has no bearing on the test results. The test has already been completed before results are sent anywhere, the Australian test server simply reports findings to the main testmy.net server, records them into the database, and reports back to you, after the test has been taken.
     
    If you were to run the multi threaded test ( selecting more than one server, then yes there would obviously be more variables involved) but that is not your question or case it seems.
     
    Not sure where the provider is getting this information, but generally speaking, that theory would not be viable in any test environment. As you may well already be aware of.

    mudmanc4 got a reaction from Peter B in Speed test wrong?   
    Actually this is the exact reason for various testing sites, it is performing precisely as intended. Showing you where the issue is.
     
    There is a routing issue between your ISP, and the New York test server, likely due to the fact the ISP has changed their schema to IPV6 on your modem, and they are likely working out new routes for this block. Of course you could have gotten bumped to a different ISP level network for various other reasons as well.
     
    Therefore the tool is doing it's job, letting you know your connection is not proper from the ISP, to the New York area, yet proper to Florida.
     
    See, if a site has a CDN (Content Delivery Network) you will not notice pageload issues, considering you will pull from the available resource in line, on the other hand, if a site is not static (like a blog) and is in the New York area, you will load slowly, if at all. If the 'blog' is located in Florida, and not on any CDN, then you'll load quickly. Testmy.net is a tool not just to check for throughput, or what speeds you are paying for, but for geographical connectivity as well.

    No idea what any of that means. Are there other speed tests I can check that are more reliable? I use to use the Ookla speed test but I heard since it runs the test with Flash it's not reliable or accurate.

    mudmanc4 reacted to Peter B in Export CSV missing test server location   
    I had been having low speed test results and could not see why. I just identified that on 30th October at 9:40am the test server was switched from London to Dallas. I should have spotted this earlier. However it would be sensible if the exported CSV identified the server that you are testing to. That way sending results to ISP's you can show differences. Plus I can remove anomalies easier.
     
    Thanks
