Us canucks (half hour west of edmonton) wouldn't mind a bit of turf down in the tropics. lol (at least didn't quite make it down to -30 C last night, so I shouldn't whine I s'pose)

 

 I can't help but wonder why combined tests can't be preset for size. It takes a lot of unnecessary time and data usage waiting for it to snoop, not to mention that it sometimes gets a silly huge number (several times the amount required) and takes several minutes to run. Auto testing can be particularly gluttonous, and it's often unattended so can become costly/risky. Most folks have a pretty fair idea what the ballpark they're in will be, and it would be nice to just set it there.

Have you used any of the available settings in the auto test, to select maximum and or minimum download/upload sizes as pictured below?

 

By setting the minimum test size, this will set the maximum, if you are sure of what to expect, as the test will run until approx ~7 seconds per test is achieved. Therefore by setting this above what you expect to get, the test will not forward.

 

You can also set 'NFW; or No Forward, which  means the test will run as prescribed by these settings.

Obviously still a caveman here. I looked around a few times, yet still overlooked that. That's almost exactly what I was looking for except that a smidge lower that 1 Mb for minimal upload would be handy. (3/4 of a Mb would be ideal, but 1 Mb is still good)

I hear that, personally I tend to just hit the various test servers , and as well have missed many of the new end user variable implemented until I need something else and start looking more closely.

Well, unfortunately I've decided to quit using your site for the combined auto test as my upload speed can vary from >1Mb to < 100Kb. (1Mb download is the lowest option you offer, despite your express test having many smaller options) I've tried setting it at 1Mb as well as just leaving it alone, yet still stumbled in and caught it taking ages (occasionally over a minute) for the upload portion alone. I try not to use my computer when tests are ongoing but often have to "end test" and come back if something comes up and I need to use my computer, hence deciding to quit using the combined auto test on this site as it serves so poorly.
