I have been DSLreports subscriber for years and untill recently (the DSLReports server crash issue) I have been getting a decent speed test results, as expected.
I live in San Diego and I use COX HSI with the advertized speed 25/5 Mb.
If I do the speed test by either using COX test site or the SpeedTest site, I am getting the very similar speed to the advertized speed 25/5 ;
When I use DSLreports test (Java or Flash, doesn't matter) I am getting only 9 to 11 download and 1.2 to 2.3 upload speed
I undersatnd that there might be some "comression" issues around and maybe the size of the files, but if this is the case, it would be nice if DSLreports add a compatible option on DSLreports Test site so this additional selection can be made before performing the tests.
Getting less than a half of the advertized speed from DSLreports site does not make me happy, nor it gives me an argument to maybe comply to COX. Any idea what is going on here? Anyone with the same problem?
Oh, by the way, I also did a test by connecting to a server in NJ and the results are the same (a little bit slower speeds from all tests but relatively speaking the issue is the same)
