Your right, they are not correct if you are on a 8Mbps package. Clean your browsers cache and retest. BTW welcome to testmy Cloudedbrains.

Just ran a test on my RoadRunner 5.0Mbit cable connection: 27+Mbits, here is my 30 day history:

http://www.testmy.net/tools/database/s_engine.php?type=user_name&q=longrifle

So you can see I didn't run the test then hit the back button. Upload is still 384kbps, gotta be the most assymetrical connection in history, rofl. Great pings 24/7 for CounterStrike:Source to a load of busy servers in the texas area from Louisiana, 20-30ms.  RoadRunner treats me good, don't know about anybody else. Heard all sorts of nightmare stories about cable back when I had dsl, shared connections, high pings, low bandwidth at peak hours, none of that for me, just high bandwidth low ping goodness all the time. I know most people aren't going to get 27mbits when paying for 5 though.

I just went & did a couple .I know the first one is not correct.I don't cache tests & as far as I know it is not possible to cache a test with dial-up on the main server.I can cache them at some of the mirrors if I want to.My test time of day is a little off I guess I need to go into my profile & adjust the time.

They were done AFTER clearing my cache so how can they be cached  :?:

because the most your ISP offers is 8mbps and you got 46mbps. that doesn't happen unless the speeds are cached or you have a web accelerator on your computer.

Well I have NO accelerator and the following link the to the package I am on:

http://tinyurl.co.uk/aa9v

Until Thurs and a call to BT BB UK tech I was getting poor speeds around

1.8meg to 1.9meg and 8hrs after the call they "changed the mapping" which

corrected my stuck/reverted profile (was 2meg customer before) and BT

Broadband's own speedtests are giving at max 5.5meg to 5.7meg at varying

times but usually around 4meg most other times!

I am now day 23 post regrade to 8meg speeds :!:

Plus my last post includes the log of my tests today since I signed

up here as Cloudedbrains :confused1:

Sorry for causing hassle but the speed test aint working here for me at all :!:

The ONE test I did of a mirror site is closer BUT still no where near accurate :?

OK just to show an AVERAGE speedtest at peak-time here in UK for

my connection I have a screenshot following:

dslzone2231pm2006065un.png

And current BT (British Telecom) off-peak result from 9.15am today was as follows:

btresult930am2006068jm.jpg

Have tried everything to get an accurate DOWNLOAD test here but

nought even mirror sites, clearing cache and disabling ALL security software
