Hi, I noticed an oddity after running tests on here


Recommended Posts

My connection is showing up as comcast but my service is astound. Is that normal and will it give me a false reading? thx


The detection of your ISP has no bearing on your results.  If your provider is being detected wrong it may be due to IP address leasing (of some kind) between the two companies.  If it's being detected that way, chances are there is some kind of relationship.  May also be that the IP block you're under was reassigned or sold.


Detection of your ISP and location aren't perfect.  The databases I reference to figure out your details are constantly being updated, location detection accuracy at the city level for instance is only about 86% accurate.  ISP, country and state/region are much more accurate.  If it's detected wrong, no big deal... it's not going to affect the outcome, only there for statistics and comparison.
