I have the opposite issue. I pay for 50/5 from TWC....and DSL Reports is giving me higher numbers than speedtest.net! hahaha





EDIT: on the phone with TWC. I ran their test on their website:

More than likely their speedtest server is part of their internal network so not as likely to be slowed down by 3rd party routing/bandwidth.

If the speed test server you are using is hosted by your ISP or on the same network, it leaves you to wonder about whether the speed of your access to the rest of the internet is any good. At the same time, if the speed test server is off network from your ISP, the test results are based on things that your ISP may have little or no control over whatsoever in the upstream providers network or even further beyond that.


I'm glad that regardless of what speed test sites or server locations I pick, whether it is on or off network, on the east coast of US, west coast, or even other countries across the ocean, my speed test results are pretty much always around 25/5 which is what I pay for. Only thing that changes is latency which is to be expected.
speedtest.net, speedof.me, speakeasy.net, testmy.net, dslreports.com
All report pretty much the same speeds for me

My connection speed might lag behind the country average, but I feel it is still plenty fast for the basic internet access nowadays.

It's nothing bad. You just need to allow scripts and XML HTTP requests from speedtest.net and mapbox.com. There's a grand total of one script on each, and these are the scripts that display rich content. The XML requests are the data feeds for the interactive content and fancy graphs.

I have used "testmy.net" for a long time now. Almost all flash driven speed tests are useless from what I've read. testmy.net let's you pick a single server or up to 10 in a multi-threaded test which I usually use. It gives a much better average of what you would get downloading from various sites. Now if you just use the single sever mode, it isn't much better than any other one but the multi-thread makes it the best one I have found hand down. If you create an account it will keep up with all your results and show you which servers are better/worse and what day and time of day gives the best/worst results. It is very in depth. I get a constant 125Mbps Down and 28 Up on speedtest (on a 100 UP/25 Down Comcast package) but my average on testmy.net is about 88 Down and 14 Up over the course of the last year or so with it doing a test at least once a day. I have it set where it auto does the check in the check on the startup of my browser each day. So yeah, speedtest.net pads their results badly.

Aren't you forced to enable their ads domain (ads.ookla.com) to run it?
