Understanding this site

Recommended Posts

When I make a test or search providers, you give me the average speed of my provider 2.5 Mbps

 

When I click on my provider I see "Average Download Speed: 3.9 Mbps"

 

Then below it, "Current Download Speed Index: 14.6 Mbps"

 

Why 3 values? what is the difference between them? which one should I consider?

Welcome Johndoe,

 

You're seeing the average speed for your provider, the Speed Index is the current average of all users on TestMy.net.

 

Here's what it looks like on my computer right now...

The Speed Index changes throughout the day because the average speed fluctuates.

Thanks CA3LE

You're welcome.

 

The number is different because in that example you're averaging the last 32407 results, in the other example you're averaging the last 50 (selectable up to 1000).

Depending on how many results you're averaging the average can change.

Thank you! I appreciate your help.
