a_abutin Posted March 21, 2019 CID Report Share Posted March 21, 2019 TMN has been my go-to speed testing site over the last 10+ years, from when I had Verizon FIOS to crappy vDSL living in the Dallas/Denton area. I finally got 1Gbps AT&T fiber to my home installed this week, but now I'm not getting the speeds on TMN compared to the vast majority of sites. Linear testing on all US servers is anywhere from 175Mbps to 300Mbps, abysmal compared to Ookla and ISP speed test sites, and half of what Mlabs (google internet speed test) and Fast.com reports. But if run express multithread, then TMN aligns much closer to what the majority of sites report. I've gone as far as setting up a Linux box and just doing raw downloads from Dallas-area datacenters with wget, but even those download speeds are still reporting much higher than TMN, and closer to what I'm supposedly paying for. This problem has me vexed to the extent that I reconfigured my network to make sure that the problem isn't local. Am I paying for Gbps service and not getting it? Routing issue to TMN? I hope to get some help figuring this out. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
