Where are all these tests coming from?


Recommended Posts

Hey. New guy here. I actually just created a user account with your website about an hour or so ago. Really cool by the way, needing something to track my new upgrade that I just got from Hughesnet via Dish Network...the ole update from Jupiter one to Jupiter two, 5G stuff because the last few years on Dish, my Internet hasn't been for squat. I know uploading will always be slower, but good grief it was bad....Now, its better, just want to make sure I'm getting what I'm paying for.


Now on with the question. As stated, I just created my account today; however, where are all the results coming from other than the 2 or three tests I have only run myself for my connection ID? I probably don't understand how this works yet, as a community input I assume. But, I am suspicious by nature,  due to the type of the work I have and/or do online now. Are these pages of test results, other than my two, coming from other subscribers to Hughes Net in general?  I just wanted to rule out someone else using anything on my net. I check for that daily, but those boogers get sneakier everyday. Running 44 mB tests all the time can eat away at your wallet on a metered connection.

Anyway, just wondered if someone wouldn't mind helping the new guy on the block with what will probably end up making me look stupid for not figuring it out myself.


Thanks again.....and as above, really cool website/tool to use.

This is common with dynamic IP addresses.  When your router restarts or the IP lease time expires, the server provider will likely assign a different IP address from its pool, after which the IP you add will become available in the pool to assign to another customer.  A side effect is that you will see test results from subscribers that were previously assigned the IP address you currently have, highlighted in yellow.  You will also see these type of results if you run speed tests on another device on your network that is logged out on TestMy.


You can hide those test results by other users by clicking the following button at the bottom of the test results page:



Your speed is very good compared to others on the Hughesnet network.
