Confused about Download Results

Recommended Posts

Hi - new member here. When I run a download test on testmy.net it averaged about 300 to 450 kb/s yet when I download real file I receive speeds of 1.11.2 mb/s.  I have a 10 Mb line on cable. I have also used opensuse to test my download, again 1.11.2 mb/s. Why are my testmy results misleading - comments please. I complained to my ISP based on Testmy results only to look like a fool when technician came to my home.  :undecided:

Well...looking at your IP....you seem to be somewhere in Ireland.

You might want to try testing from a site in the UK as crossing the ocean and running through who knows what connection will tend to slow things down.

We used to have a mirror in the UK..but I think it's gone now.

Hope this helps a little....and welcome to the forum.  [nerdly]

Hopefully I have some new mirrors up real soon, I want to re-script that portion of the site that's why they've been gone for so long.
