Speed test variances

Recommended Posts

One of the biggest problems with speedtest.net is the test servers that they are provided are mostly from ISP's and are on that ISP's network and if your not on that your result will be slower.

Testmy.net has the advantage of being on a network that has 8 bandwidth providers so you are likely to find one that has a good connection with your ISP's network.

The reason that your result is so slow has nothing to do with speedtest.net, its because they switched to some crappy voip provider for the test server in dallas. It use to be a really good server, then swiched to FDN and was still good, but the VOIP one they are using now sucks.

I can't get faster then 2mbps

try a differnet server
