Well, It IS fast tonight.  Those speeds are actually real.  I monitored the speed with FAPMON.  Could the problems actually be over?.....I doubt it.....but we'll see...

They are doing something.  My speeds seeem to be jumping all over the place.  Huge bursts, then slowdown, then back up...weird....

Maybe they are experimenting.

Either way, 650Kbps is MUCH better than 300......

My "fantastic" speeds went all to hell about 2 hours ago as well. Lots of "impaired" and no service at all. I finally got a speed test done a while ago and here are the results. The upload really sucks!

Okay, if it isn't a speed burst, then I should've gotten 164kb/s on my download...

Bird did it not start out with 161kpbs as you down load ON SAT your speed gets slower b/c its coming to a end so it dont need that fast of a speed any down load you do well do that

even if it is speed burst but i well say it most likely is but i am happy to see the big down load speeds

That is the definition of a speed burst, yes... It actually started at like 300kb/s

Please don't forget that these speed bursts only seem affected on testmy.net. If you run a test on dslreports.com or toast.net/performance where you can actually SEE what you are downloading, you will find your speeds that are 1300kbps on testmy are actually around 800kbps on the others which makes sense. I don't know why we would be getting these speeds on testmy unless direcway bought them out and is fudging the tests or they just happen to be connected to a really good backbone right now. I don't see any improvement in web browsing or latency anywhere else...only on testmy.net. My speeds tongiht suck but they are still better than Satmex5!!!

Seems to me the toast speed site shows way different speeds on each server selected...every body has a favorite ?

I compare the test here to fileburst the transfer rates are real close to this site right here. myDway test are more accurate now than before. Since they made changes here I do see inaccurate results especially on the first test run?

I was being a little sarcastic but Dway HAS bought out sites where speed tests are run and there are forums where people constantly complain...why wouldn't people complain? I mean if you had such a horrendous service and you wanted people to be happily duped, why wouldn't you pad the test scores??? I didn't really mean Dway bought testmy...but it has happened!

The big question is how testmy does the speed test. Do they use a text file, graphics file, a combination or what? If you run the largest text only file on toast.net, you will be amazed! If you run the largest graphics only, you will be disappointed! If testmy changed the parameters of the download test so it is less processor intensive, the test speeds will go up. At least I think this is the way it works. If you try this yourself and download a large text file from a web site and then download a similar sized graphics file from the same web site, the graphics file will take longer to download if it is opened on your computer as it is downloading. This, to me, is the true test of speed since web pages don't download completely before you can see them. If they did, you would have a blank screen but then presto!  My speeds are back up now but they definitely still drop off during prime time but not as bad as with satmex5
