Re: [TWC] TWC NYC (Manhattan) slow speeds during peak hours
I think you are giving too much credit to speedof.me I just I ran a speedtest and I got 2.5 Mbps down and 5.92 Mbps up.
Soon after I ran a test to Dallas and Houston using speedtest.net and speedtest.comcast.net and got what I'm supposed to get 50/5Mbps to be exact 51.7 Mbps down 5.12 Mbps up.
So your script looks very good and cool but IMO the speedtest server you are using is not reliable.
Can you modify your program to use other speedtest servers?
I've generally found speedof.me to be consistent with speedtest.net both when the issue is occurring and when it is not.
I chose speedof.me because it is HTML5 based (as opposed to Flash or Java, like most others), making it easy to write that automated tool.
