Thanks for replying Boris, I will do as you suggested. I have added "https//www.speedtest.net" as a speed test provider. Most likely I do not a problem but I will keep my eye on it. I just want to be sure I get what I am paying for. Thanks again.
Broadband speed test rates can vary minute by minute.
To get a a realistic figure of the actual speeds you get, do a series of tests over say a week at different times of day/night and see what the average you get is.
Preferably do a speed test which is not actually provided by your ISP 😀
I use https://www.speedtest.net - I'm 20 miles from the nearest city, using a copper wire (not fibre) connection.
My internet provider is Spectrum and the program I have is supposed to give me a download speed of 15 mbps. I periodically take advantage of the speed tests provided by Spectrum. Curious how a speed test can vary when you do two in a row, one right after the other. Usually the first speed test will test lower and the one after will test higher. I seldom download files but when I do I would like to know it is at the download speed I am paying for. Anyone else, experience this?
