Speed Results To Get Out Of Isp Contract


Recommended Posts

So my situation is this.. My condominium is under a bulk agreement with an ISP. In the contract they are supposed to provide a minimum of 10 Mb/s. Among other things, they also are required to monitor our speeds and increase bandwidth to meet this requirement. The past few months August - December, the internet was horrible during peak times. Due to a lot of complaining they attempted to improve it.

Among other things, we want to gather evidence that our ISP isn't living up to the contract. I thought this was a great website because I can montior speeds every half hour. Speedtest.net does not have a way to automate tests. However Speedtest.net tells me drastically different information. How can I tell what is accurate? Unlike people that just want to see a nice big number and are hoping for one, I want to see the most realistic number possible.

Depending on the location of the server in relation to your location, peak time and peak testing times on other sites , you may get different results.

With testmy.net , the server at the moment is a constant. Of course we all deal with peak times, but this is a given and is not relevant to testmy.net servers. Just your specific route.

You may have a optimal reference to your issues , that is if you are aware of issues within your local network to begin with, yet still get an elevated test at one of the flash testing sites. It can be a good indication as to the more accurate testing procedure. Which my thoughts are your getting higher test scoring elsewhere.
