Use Visualware's tests and use Java based tests...not Flash. Visualware has the best tests of all. TWC uses Visualware's tests on all its gateway servers and always has. TWC here in Hawaii leased MySpeed test for us RR users about 4-5 years ago (their second choice was to lease Justin's Java speed test). I was a main force in persuading OTWC to get MySpeed test. They had it for two years and then didn't renew their contract with Visualware but went with Speedtest.net. Why? (1) because Speedtest.net is FREE and (2) because the most important measurement which is the Quality of Service one OTWC had lots of problems giving us a strong, non variable speed. That severe shortcoming showed up glaringly on MySpeed tests. Speedtest.net cannot measure QOS. I was told that too many users were calling in about poor QOS so OTWC decided to move to Speedtest.net with its inflated values especially if you have PowerBoost.
NO speed tests out there can do an accurate test if you have PowerBoost except for CERTAIN (not all) Visualware MySpeed tests and SamKnows tests which are able to factor out Speedboost into a separate rating so you can see your speed with PowerBoost and your REAL SUSTAINED speed without PowerBoost.
Do this Quality test which is a Visualware test. There is a server in Los Angeles, Texas and Georgia. The link is to the Los Angeles one but pick the one closer to you. Read carefully and do the route test and capacity one also. Capacity test is what speedtest.net is doing and all other speed tests except MySpeed and old fashioned download of a very large file.
"This test is special in that it is an application speed test and displays real world speeds and connection quality as would be observed by most applications that you currently operate such as streaming or voice over IP and other single socket applications. Do NOT treat the results from this test as you would results from other broadband speed tests".
This test can filter out PowerBoost...at least it has done so for me when I had 10/1 and Powerboost. I have 15/1 now and there is no Powerboost on it. Your QOS (Quality of Service) should always be in the high 90's.

You can also do an old fashioned big file download from a known fast server as PowerBoost will exhaust itself and then the latter part of the test will show your true speed (of course you have sit and watch the downloading in your browser to see this). This is the one I have used for many years:
