Re: [Connectivity] Extreme 50/15 but getting 10
said by EG:You would think these speed test sites would come up with a way to measure the same kind of thing, then display the peak (powerboost) speeds as well as the sustained speeds.
I think that these are isolated cases and more so the exception and not the rule. IMHO, it is still a gold standard measuring tool and I will still be recommending its use when I want a more accurate reference than any of the run of the mill Flash and Java based speed testing sites.
But as we know, it would take more time and more bandwidth on the part of the servers hosting the speed tests, so that's probably a deterrent. But given many cable providers have implemented powerboost, I'm surprised there are no good web-based speed tests sites that will break it down like shaperprobe does!
