RESOLVED! [INTERNET] Cogeco Speed Test Gonzo?

Is the Cogeco Speed Test no longer available?
»speedtest.cogeco.net/

Or perhaps it is just down for 'maintenance'; perhaps it needed some work to handle all the new higher cable speeds?

Just wondering...

Works fine for me.

Yeah, it's back for me now.

I was getting "Firefox can't find the server at speedtest.cogeco.net" for several tries, over about 15 minutes.

I should know better to wait longer, and then try again!

edit...

BTW, is there an upper speed cap on the Cogeco test? Will it handle a Rogers user on 150/10, with speedboost kicking things up even higher?

Fine for me too

I've had a problem with java updates in the past.

It might work now but it was definitely down last week.

I called Cogeco about a performance issue and asked them if they killed speedtest.cogeco.net and the response I received from business support was, "speedtest.cogeco.net is speedtest.net".

Uh, okay. That didn't exactly answer my question but... okay.

UrbanRiot... 37.4/1.8... What plan are you on?

I wonder if this Cogeco test is really ready for the higher speeds. I just asked someone in the Start forum, on 60/2, to try it, and his DL speed showed at 21M, whereas speedtest.net showed him over 60M.

A few weeks back in CdnBB, somone on Bell FTTH, using speedtest.net, was getting 170M+ from Comcast and Toronto Nexicom, but only showed 32M from this Cogeco test.

edit1: It still works fine for me on 6M DSL, and I always trusted this test more than the speedtest.net tests!
