Sprint blocks pingtest.net

I have been having speed issues. Sprint likes to use Speedtest.net to test speed but this does not tell the whole picture and/or seems to provide results that are better than other servers.

I tried pingtest.net which appears to be related to speedtest.net and saw what appeared to be much larger ping times but never received a result due to a firewall error @pools.spcsdns.net

Is everybody blocked or is it just my suspect area?

If the 4G is anything like the 3G I guess we know why 4G is blocked.

I should have specified 4G.

This 3G data is helpful since it confirms what I and others have noticed........ 3G is really bad everywhere.

Can anybody try pingtest.net on Sprint 4G?

Thanks

Did a quick check on Clear and pingtest.net wasn't blocked.
