Wonder if their test will properly gauge the true speed of Comcast boost services?
inaccurate. It states I have a 25/3 when I have 25/15. Also my fios tested on another site is 25/25 which is accurate.
Mine said my connection was a 22/1 but I only have a 8/1
wow.. I see nothing but "Pain" with this

Please note that the Consumer Broadband Test in its current software based form may not be an accurate representation of connection quality provided by your broadband provider. The results can be impacted by a range of factors -- for instance, the test can vary based on the geographical distance of the user from the testing server, end-user hardware, network congestion, and time of day.
The REAL reason for these tests - broadband mapping data:
FCC may use data collected from the Consumer Broadband Test (Beta), along with submitted street address, to analyze broadband quality and availability on a geographic basis across the United States.
Powerboost and other factors are inconsequential to the main purpose - mapping data.
What are you talking about? If it shows 25/10 because of powerboost and your connection is 12/5 then it is providing false information is it not?

I tried it straight from our 1000 Mbs fiber, only got around 30 mbps, so I think they are probably getting hammered by all of us testing it out. --

Tried it within moments of the news hitting NANOG first thing this morning, and the speeds weren't even close. The Java app pegged me at 1.3M down 18M up. The flash app was the opposite, only more extreme. 24M down 0.3M up.
Tests were run from 25/25 FIOS.

But after a test, the FCC knows you have a connection and your address...which it most likely didn't before. Besides, what's that definition of broadband again?

Um... er... could these folks be involved with this??
Could this lead anyone to a conclusion about how
1) accurate this is likely to be?
2) how useful this will turn out
3) how much more tax we'll be charged for this "new" tool that's already been developed by private companies and the G'ment wants to re-engineer it ?
