the download and upload test is incorrect here

Recommended Posts

the test on this site is way off for my speed everytime I do it.  Is the site broken or what?  My speed on [this.site.has.been.blocked.for.spamming] is: http://www.[this.site.has.been.blocked.for.spamming]/result/218255484.png 

and its like 2000/400 here.  Any help?

thanks

hey man i see you only have 2 posts...but dont be coming in here and dissing this site...its more accurate than any other site out there....you may just have a problem with distance or something to the server....

could be as simple as that...not like the site is "broken" ...hell you could just have to pick a different test size...not that difficult.

anyways, i wanted to say...dont come in here and promote other sites..that is spamming and justifiably a reason to get suspended/banned if its repeated offenses... just giving you a headsup....

if i were a mod i'd also edit your post for spamming speedtest.net....that site doesnt even work... it only has one test size and its servers are way too inaccurate...

heyman,

if the download and upload is inaccurate its inaccurate.  this site is fine.  The tests don't work.  I'm sorry you need a hug and are dating this site.  I picked every size offered here and get a different low reading everytime(2800 or worse/600 or worse..)

  Nobody is spamming anything.  the illegal supposedly spamming(speedtest)is the most accurate site Ive found.

I just wondered why the test here is so bad.  The number of posts I put here?  You really are clueless.  What does that matter? Your post to me wasn't helpful was it. How many you posted?  LOL :2funny:

Ill stick with my 16000/1600 reading on the realsite that works.  and leave this junk to you- heyman

no response from you needed :cheesy:

thanks for your helpful reply.  I cleared the cache under tools and delete all(browsing history). 

Still getting 2800/500 readings   I know its faster than that(Im getting 12000/1500 elswhere). 

Any helpful response is appreciated. 

My san diego roadrunner is rated 15000/1500(it runs 18500/1700 most days).

Welcome to the forum, I think you will find that with the right attitude this is a very nice place to hang out. You must also understand we have had alot of spam from competing sites due to testmys growth and respect so please understand why some members can be testy at times.

Go to start then run type cmd in the box. In the command box type tracert testmy.net then hit enter on your key board. All this is done from windows.

Goes to show how different sites react differently. When I ping TMN, I get a high of 19ms and a low of 11ms. My DL is almost always around 7500-8000 Kbps:

When I go to that "other site", I get ping times of over 200ms and my DL speed this morning was 2726Kbps. TMN's server is in Dallas, the other one is in Austin and I am in Houston which makes TMN's server farther from me than the other guys'. They used to have one in Houston (it disappeared recently) that showed similarly poor results.

c309,

can you post a test result from testmy.net for us?

thank you all reply-ers.  I apologize for getting a couple of people upset.  My original post had no name calling.  It was a factual post.  My response to starship?  I called him heyman?  and clueless because "you are only smart if you post alot was inferred".  I apologize if this was out of line. 

I posted my speed from another site thinking this would help show my speed.  I'm not spamming anything.  Ive always used this site and tell my clients to use it. It has not been accurate for me I even got my cable company out here and had new cables installed with a dedicated connection.  He showed my speed on the "other site" telling me that this site is inaccurate.  I don't want to believe that.  Cable guys aren't the smartest.  So I posted here.

i pay for 15000/1500.  my fastest run around 20000/1900.  I use downloaders like flashget which also shows the download speed of whatever your downloading.  I definitely get the fast speeds shown by other site.  This is the only site I get bad readings.  Ive tried several.

I never get anywhere near my true speed in these tests. But when im downloading big files the speed i download at is just right, its like the tests never work, i have tried and tried and tried, The site that new member showed is the only site to show the right results, i have no idea why that is. I still like this site very much, i just wish the tests would work for me.
