Re: [HSI] Will charter upgrade 30 meg service

said by Tanker:

I just checked mine several times, using both Charter's speed test and the more reliable Speedtest.net for comparison.

Charter's never gave me less than 60Mps, usually in the 70s, once pushing 90Mbps.

Speedtest.net gave me consistently in the mid-40s.

I'm on the 30Mbps plan.

However, the speed indicator on Newsbin shows ~33Mbps, which is pretty much what it always has been.

The day that speedtest.net is regarded as more reliable is the day that ALL speed test sites become known as fantastically accurate! That is one of the crappiest and least accurate sites of them all!!

The most accurate plane speed test site is »www.testmy.net and that one also totally depends on time of day, congestion, and DEFINITELY what browser you are using, etc.

Any and all flash test sites suck the big green one. Only truly accurate way to measure speed is download a huge file as already shown above by compuguybna, and even that TOTALLY depends on that sites server capabilities and congestion, among a few other things.

Charter business is a waste of money no matter how you look at it.

How can Charter business be anymore of a waste of money than their residential plan, especially of the same speed?
