Comparing Speed Tests
by xctruckee - 10/18/11 11:37 AM
So, here at work, it "felt" like our internet speeds are not up to what they're advertised to be. We have AT&T Elite, which advertises 3 mbps to 6 mbps.
So, I tried FOUR different internet bandwidth test sites, and got 4 different results: AT&T Speed test gave me 3-4 mbps (download times), CNET gave me .7 mbps (710 kbps), DSL Reports gave me .65 mbps (650 kbps), and BandwidthPlace gave me 1.5-2 mbps. I tried each a few times on two different computers, both my laptop (via wireless router) and desktop (via ethernet). Obviously, a HUGE difference in results, so I have no clue who to believe. Any ideas/suggestions?
