Nick S Posted November 11, 2017 CID Report Share Posted November 11, 2017 Hi Guys I am new to this forum. I wonder if anyone could help me in trying to work out what is going on with my internet speeds please. I am located in Australia and am currently on a VDSL2 - 30 Mbps plan. I have done several speed tests using different test sites and I am getting huge differences between them at any particular time in the day. Let me summarise the last set of download speed test results: 1. Speedtest.net – 56 Mbps 2. Testmy.net (multithread) – 57 Mbps 3. Testmy.net (single thread) – 6 Mbps 4. Bandwidth Place – 7 Mbps 5. Speedof.me – 7 Mbps Based on the above, the results of the two multithread test sites (inc speedtest.net) are pretty much the same high value, whereas the other 3 (which are presumably all single thread tests) all give significantly low results (by a magnitude!). The other intriguing question is, why am I getting 56-57 Mbps (multithread tests) when I am on an “up to” 30 Mbps download plan?! Would someone in this forum have an explanation for this discrepancy, particularly in respect to the single thread and multithread Testmy.net tests please. Many thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
