That, and I live in the middle of nowhere with the closest house being well over 500 feet away, and I barely get any signal sitting in my garage, on my phone, in my car.

Yes, but I pay for 22Mbps + Powerboost which is probably an additional 5-10Mbps. But if that were true it would still boost the other speed test to 30Mbps, especially considering I do the non-popular one first, if anything it'd consider speedtest.net that additional crap that it doesn't feel like boosting.

Yeah powerboost for me, 22-25mbps in speed tests but in reality its 12mbps once it's off.

Yeah because you pay for 12Mbps service. I pay for 22Mbps + powerboost which is supposed to add to the 22.

Where is the servers situated your downloading from. Speed test you chose the closest server which makes the route and the underlying network shorter. If the server isnt local then it have to cross over oceans etc you can pick it up in a trace route by the drastic increase in the ping times over a hop.
Go here
1. right-click the Network Adapter in Network Connectionsand click Properties .

2. Click the Configure button and then the General tab.

What is the setting there you see?
You should see one of the following values
10 Mb Full, 10 Mb Half, 100 Mb Full, 100 Mb Half , or Auto .

What nic do you have?
