The graph is upload and download data from other users, by default, on the same domain as you. You can change this to display results based on other selection information. The X axis is speed. The Y axis is the number of samples around that speed. Grey is for download speed. Blue is for upload speed. Your current and past results are marked by green and red chevrons. Common products for the domain should show as peaks. For instance, 3mbit and 6mbit may be two common products and may show two peaks on the download section of the graph.

Feedback received on this FAQ entry:
  • Yes, as some have suggested, PLEASE USE THE COMMON MEASURE OF SPEED, which is Mbps NOT Kbps!! I thought I had read that DSL Reports does use Mbps, yet the results are in Kbps, requiring I figure out how to translate that to Mbps, in order to compare with what Charter is saying I am getting. Please get on the same page with this!

  • When you say 210 is the download speed can you describe what unit of measure you are using to describe the speed? Is this per second ? Per Minute? When I use Windows to download a file I get speeds of 21 kbs?

  • Why do I get the upload graph data but not the download? I have 3 old points on each but I just get a new pip on the upload. The actual data shows up as text above the graph Just not on the graph

  • The speed scale of the graph seems to be off by a factor of 10. i.e., 15 Mbps is indicated as 1.5 Mbps.

  • I like your site Very Much!! My problem is understanding the results. Exactly what are the number's units written out as clearly as possible-please don't abbreviate?? We're interested in comparing your results with what our provider says we're SUPPOSED to be getting & I've discovered everyone's results are different units = ? kilobytes ? kilobites Megabytes bites etc etc How in the world are we supposed to understand our results when there's all these different ways to list results?! It's also good to list things we understand in the graph of our results overlaying known results ie; T1(area of speeds possible using that download source)speeds, DSL speeds, dial up speeds etc etc. I realize I may not be clear in what I'm interested in seeing but I'm trying! Our problem is not being able to compare apples to apples...bites bytes etc etc etc. Thanks very much for your Valuable Time! Jim Woolley, DDS Atlanta GA

  • The fastest available speed in our little rural town (01070) is 3Mbps (and we've only had that for two weeks). How is it possible that when I filter by zipcode is shows scads of people with 10Mbps and higher connections? There are only 600 people in town and no industry, and I KNOW that nobody has a T3 in town.

  • Would it be possible to implement an averaging report, numerically (rather than graphically) comparing average user test speeds against the average speeds reported by the requested comparison sample (i.e. the ISP or Zip Code filters)? It would be useful for troubleshooting certain issues by knowing how your own connection is performing relative to those of the same ISP, as well as determining whether you're getting an appropriate service quality for your local region.

  • Can we get statistics on the speed test? E.g., it is far more valuable to get mean or average speed + variation (std. dev. or other). This is very important to know for to qualify/test for any type of real-time applications, video conferencing being most importaqnt to us. Even more valuable would be to test for packet jitter.
