Are the test speeds really that accurate?

Recommended Posts

When I test here at mytest my Download speeds say about 550Kb/s but sometimes at some sites I can download 2 files that are about 700Mb each, download at the same time at a total of about 800Kb/s  with one usually at 550kb/s and the other at around 175-200kb/s.. just a thought

hey risky :)

I think the test is very accurate, however the speedmeters in the webrowser is far from accurate

to find your real speed, do like this during download of the files

hit ctrl+alt+del and click on network

see how many% your using of the 10 Mbps link or 100 Mbps link

eg your using 48% of 10 Mbps

thats 10 x 0,48 = 4,8 Mbps = 4800 / 8,192 = 586 KB/s
