Maybe my installer was right and you need to be pointed to the bird that works best for you in your area. The only problem with that is the installer has to be good, honest, concerned and willing to push for the bird that works!  How many of those are out there???

Or has testmy.net done something different in the last couple of hours? The web page looks different all of a sudden.

maybe testmy was just secretly bought out by Direcway and that explains the incredibly faster download speeds??? My installer told me there used to be a site called direcwaysuxs or something like that and direcway bought the domain so nobody could complain anymore! I just tried dslreports.com speedtest and it is TOTALLY different. Why don't you try running that one and see what happens?

Welcome to BBR! Run more tests! see forums

toast.net performance was even slower. A 1.4mb file did this...Your Results:  748 Kb

and a 389kb file uploaded at this...You uploaded 389,775 bytes in 53 seconds.  Your upload speed is 59 kbps.

And here is mydirecway's test...February 14th, 06:31PM - 986/106 kbps

I think testmy.net just went wacko for a while

I just ran the download test using the 1.496mb file and something is definitely wacko with testmy tests right now. It sure isn't Direcway doing us any favors. Here is the result...

Latest speeds with new AMC9 bird point. These are during prime time which normally is 250/90 for SatMex5

Still looking pretty good. Obviously that earlier test was a total speed burst!
