Test Results

Recommended Posts

Until today, my Comcast Cable speed results, as tested on your site,  were mostly either in the high 3's or low 4's. Now they are mainly in the mid 2's. Interestingly, other test sites still record my speed in either the high 3's or low 4's. It seems to me that testmy.net may have changed some aspects of its testing procedure(?), thereby producing lower result figures. What is does appear to say, however, is that most bandwidth testing is a VERY inaccurate method of measuring speed. Who knows what is really is?

I'm suspecting that it's one of 2 things.... Could be that it slows down fat connections like the one I'm on, or maybe my computer here at the office is the bottleneck.. .I already know that it gets bogged down when I run the test, and maybe it's getting more lagged with having to update the progress bar... (It's a really old machine).... WDBUTCH, what kind of system are you on (CPU, memory, etc) ?

Well, I am pretty sure that this has to do with CPU, the script was still a little too taxing on CPU so I made a couple changes.  Clear your cache and restart your browser... I had to drop some of the features of the bar to clear the problem though :( ~~ all that work for nothing, lol.

It worked fine for me and some others... but that's because I have an athlon 3000+ ~ I think you told me your CPU was 1GHz ~ that might have been the issue.

You are getting better scores even on your upload since yesterday... I made no changes to the upload test.... your connection just get better.

I pay no attention to the upload, it jumps like crazy and isnt related to my download speed most of the time.  My CPU is Intel P4 HT @ 3.0GHz, maybe why the progress bar didnt affect me?  I was at my cousins house this evening.  He has comcast, and the progress bar majorly lowered his speed(that was before you changed it CA3LE), but his computer is quite slow also.
