I've used more than one and they all came out at about the same numbers.

My download was advertised as 100Mbps......only getting 92Mbps according to speedtest. Upload was even worse at 82Mbps.

Did not sem to matter what browser.

Oh we'll, at least it is faster than systems in California and Arizona. Wow, that was painful. Worse thing about being a snowbird!!!

Any info, though, on the relative merits of these speed test sites? Or what the ISPs are doing to ensure good results?!!

I've heard that the ISPs now provide a speed boost when those sites are accessed so as to inflate their results.

Plus, you'll also see that the testing site often connects to another site that belongs to your ISP which does raise a question or two.

Hence, looking for independent sites that screen temporary power boosts and do longer tests.
