Results of this test much slower than others...why?

The short answer is that your ISP test Server site is <50 miles from you, and is not reporting the complete results to you.nearby test servers don’t give you a realistic internet performance speed because most of the time when you use the internet, the sites you connect to are much farther away than 50 miles and go through a complex web of nodes.


You can see on the green and yellow graph above that your download speed is all over the place but the result they give you (109Mbps) is the value it was at the end of the test, The actual value of that data is far lower than 109 if they had averaged over the whole test period.

Here’s a good write up of why the TestMy results are meaningful and the ISP tests have a limited usefulness. Read all the tabs on this page.  https://testmy.net/legit-speed-test.php
