  • Fibre Broadband speeds reversed on laptop
    I have a Dell 5530 supplied by my work, built by our desktop guys (I'm in network/server support). At home, I've had 900MB FTTP installed, and after some issues with the speeds anyway, I've now discovered that running any speedtest (,,, etc) on the 5530 shows the speeds reversed, i.e. I'm getting 100MB download and 800MB+ upload, and it's only on the laptop, all other devices show... - Source: Reddit / 15 days ago
  • people without bundles or promos, whats your internet cost monthly?
    Please use something that actually uploads and downloads packets like ISP-recommended speed tests (like those provided by Ookla) are notoriously unreliable and inaccurate. - Source: Reddit / 21 days ago

  • Fast internet but slow download speed.
    Tested my download speed at and, both show me that my download speed is 200-300 Mbps, but when I try downloading any file in my PC's browser (Edge) or from my phone's browser (Chrome) it goes down to 100Kbps or less, and when I try downloading something from an app store like Microsoft Store or Play Store I can download a 100MB app in less than a minute. How can I solve this? Are the browsers... - Source: Reddit / about 1 month ago
  • How to bypass ISP throttling?
    Whenever I consume 20gb per day, my ISP throttles the speed down to 1mbps, except on social media apps (tiktok, playstore, facebook, etc...) is there any method to trick the ISP into thinking the data is coming from those apps instead of lets say steam, youtube? I tried using a VPN, it doesn't work. Oookla speedtest and shows the full speed, while shows 1mbps (120kb/s) which is the true speed. - Source: Reddit / about 2 months ago
  • Bufferbloat - Shaping Guides Make no difference
    Waveform is the only one that shows a latency that high under load during download. Other sites like fast and, show the ping to be around 20-30 during download. - Source: Reddit / 2 months ago
  • One slow(ish) device in the house
    Her PC is on wifi. No Ethernet cable connection. For internet speed testing, I use Google Fiber Speed Test or Same receiving server for each app when I'm comparing devices. IOW, if I'm using, I always use their NY server. For Google Fiber, it's a local ISP's server. My laptop, (MacBook Pro), using the same wifi connection with the same servers, can top out very close to 400mbps using either... - Source: Reddit / 2 months ago
  • All browsers slow on fresh install
    DNS problems perhaps? Have you run normal speedtest checks?, speedtest, - Source: Reddit / 3 months ago
  • For the love of all that is holy please leave internet speed test results in your accommodation reviews
    Keep in mind that the usual speedtests like and are prioritized by most ISPs so you'll end up with non-typical results for average browsing. There are some obscure speedtest sites that are unknown enough to actually give you a believable result. Try - Source: Reddit / 3 months ago
  • Question about download speed
    Feel free to look at and for a more accurate test. - Source: Reddit / 3 months ago
  • Speedtests Not Showing Correct Internet Speeds - ISP States that They're 'Fake News'
    Eh, they can vary and not be "true", but they should be fairly close/accurate. You could try too. - Source: Reddit / 3 months ago
  • Day 4: Switched from T-Mobile (Phone, Watch, Home Internet) to Verizon (Phone, Watch, Home Internet) and I'm not at all disappointed in these 5G UW speeds on my home internet connection. Also dropped my bill by a ton since I can apply my ACP credit. doesn't really show many metrics, it's super stripped down so I really only use it on my phone, shows a lot of metrics but it's not 100% reliable so in speed tests I do on my PC I use which is the test you see in my screenshot. It shows a lot of metrics and because it's cloudflare it's pretty accurate. - Source: Reddit / 3 months ago
  • Ethernet backbone "having issues" because why? all of a sudden? it's all shielded cat6e properly landed
    Wirelessly? Or wired? Because I don't trust any speed test that's not run direct wired to a PC through a third party speed test like or never use ookla or the "google" test or whatever the ISP recommends, way too easy for them to inflate the numbers seen, but that's my tinfoil hat soapbox. - Source: Reddit / 3 months ago
  • Visible phone signal vs wifi router
    So I am betting that you can improve your signal by trying each individual band (doing a speed test after each change). It's what I learned to do after having poor results with my phone "auto seeking" and switching to bands automatically. I learned about this from forums just like this. The subject of putting the Visible sim in something other than your phone, has been addressed already. - Source: Reddit / 3 months ago
  • Speedtesting
    Another one is TestMy. Very good, imo. You can test on many servers. - Source: Reddit / 4 months ago
  • Shaw problem I believe is in the NODE but Shaw refuses to acknowledge it
    To confirm that it wasn't that specific twitch server that was the problem, I tried other twitch servers. I also would wait to see when the streamlabs OBS shows I'm beginning to drop frames (decrease in KBPS) and then I would upload a 100 MB file to Whenever I would do this, the average speed dropped to around 7.5 Mbps for upload. - Source: Reddit / 4 months ago
  • What internet speed test do you trust?
    I see it from the Ookla speed test when done on the router, and also but that one bounces a lot, and when I DL games I peak out about there, Steam,, Epic. - Source: Reddit / 4 months ago
  • App crashes after ~10 seconds?
    You can run an internet speed test using your phone's wifi. Take a look at the graph and see how smooth your download traffic is. Shouldn't drip to the bottom for example. - Source: Reddit / 4 months ago
  • Pleading for help with an internet problem I have had for over 2 years in total (or similar ones)
    On my Streamlabs OBS (streaming software) when I see the bit rate drop to around 3000 when it spikes down from 6000, I have ran a speedtest at the exact same time on and it shows my speeds are even slower than they normally are. - Source: Reddit / 4 months ago
