Test Site Speed Differences

Recommended Posts

I recently had some RR speed issues and during troubleshooting I was told to run tests on testmy.  For the last few days I have been running tests on testmy as well as speedtest.net and speedtest.twrochester.com.  I am seeing significant download result differences between testmy and the other two test sites, for example 6.12 on testmy versus 9.75 and 9.80 on the other two.  Can someone give me an idea as to why the difference exists?

I am new. When I test from the default server for the testmy.net site I get values less than from some other sites (say 8 to 10). The default size was 6.1 Mb file. Don't know how I managed two images. Any thoughts? I just want to do this correctly. Having issues with Comcast and I want to monitor them more.

But if I choose another mirror, I get unrealistic results say in 40 to 50 mbs. The mirror site does not provide the link to create the image. The mirror sites I pick the "Large" 7 Mb sample file. Mirror-lofl for the first one below

Even if I pick the testmy.net flat file server from the list of mirrors I get a significantly higher number (this time also at > 50 Mbps) but earlier it was 30.
