I have the same problem on testmy.net.  I used to get good results of 80 to 100 Mbps, but over the past few weeks I only get around 43 Mbps.  Other sites give me around 80-100 now, but no longer this one.  Not sure what gives, always use the same nearby server at Dallas.  Something is not right here anymore.

TestMy.net is hard.  Keep reading.

Hubcity is getting 90 Mbps with multithread.  (btw @HubCity I noticed the two erroneous results that happened on your account when you switched multithread back on for the first time in a long time... the program should have removed a couple of servers from your selection that were no longer valid.  This has been corrected for the future and those results were removed from the DB.  Looks like you fixed it by going to the selection and selecting valid servers.)

 

HubCity's Speed Test Results

@missmoondog if you select a single server from the multithread test you may get better results.  I do.

 

ISPs are shaping how you are able to draw your bandwidth more now.  I watched it happen to my own connection recently when I "upgraded" to "gigabit".  My connection on the normal, default TestMy.net speed test actually scores much worse now.  The connection is so slow to start building up speed it ruins the final result.  That's TMN for ya!  It's harsh.  Even on the guy who designed it.

 

I multithread and get a much better result.  When I multithread to a single location, near by... I BLOW IT OUT OF THE WATER!  Goes from 200 Mbps to nearly 500 Mbps.  In line with results I see on ookla tests that Comcast pushes me to use.  The ISP's want you to see the best possible outcome.  TMN wants to help improve your speeds.

 

I know it's confusing, I'm working to make a test to help illustrate the difference by testing all of this at once for you.

 

Before calling Comcast my results between TestMy.net's two test types were basically the same.  After upgrading and switching to a newer modem I now have a huge difference.

 

Multithread off to Dallas Multithread on to Dallas

Multithread off to Colorado (closest to me)

Multithread on to CO

 

My speed is not consistent like it used to be.

 

Before the upgrade

 

Multithread off to Dallas Multithread on to Dallas

Here's two taken within seconds of each other, just days before I changed my package and equipment.

Screen Shot 2018-11-05 at 10.44.04 AM.png

 

Nothing changed with TestMy.net.  Any changes are being built into the beta...

 

In my case, my internet is to blame.  It runs great and I can pull more bandwidth.  I just can't burst it like I used to.  And TMN, being harsh, shows that.  I may be faster now once I get going but is that really faster when you have to wait for it to ramp up?  Depends on how big your transfer is I guess.

 

If you're on cable, I think the last great modem that (maybe) the ISPs weren't able to shape was the 8x4 channel Motorola SB6141.  When modems with 16+ channels came out I noticed this speed curve and immediately went back to my SB6141.  A couple of years later (just recently) I try to upgrade my package again and see the same slow start curve on TMN.  This time I CAN'T go back.

 

I tried to "downgrade" back to my original package and they cut my upload speed from 25 Mbps to 5 Mbps!!!!  I spent over 12 hours on the phone with Comcast.  Long story, I'll write about it later.  Totally insane.  Ended up with 35 Mbps upload.  But my download speed isn't even close to being as stable in TMN tests as it used to be.  I see this when I download from Giganews [usenet] (which can always max out my connection).  Before I would start a transfer and it would instantly max out my connection... now I can get a higher speed but it takes time to build up, many seconds.  Exactly in line with the results I see on TMN.

 

Makes me feel bad when I test now but it is what it is.  The methodology, test and servers didn't change... my connection did.

 

Outside of TestMy.net every other speed test I've ever seen is designed to show your maximum speed.  I personally don't like riding with blinders on.

I see some of your recent results with a middle and average closer to what you're hoping to see.  But like my connection, you're starting out slow.  At 20-25% you hit your stride.
