Re: Ookla is a bad choice.
said by ArizonaSteve:I agree with your Oookla statement however speed.io is far from being an accurate or reliable test. Yea its looks fancy but in my tests with multiple connections and providers Speed.io was an epic fail....sorry!
Ookla's Speedtest.net is not accurate and tends to give extra high speed readings which is why a lot of companies like Qwest use it. It would give me a speed of 1600k on my1500k DSL line that was only running about 640k. It gives insanely high readings on Virgin Mobile too. Speed.io is more accurate.
Speed.io is an excellent example of the ad farm speed test proliferation that has poluted the net recently adding further confusion to consumers. Lots of ads...worthless test.
