said by compuguybna:The Ookla test is probably fine for connections 20mbps and under. Beyond that the http based test they use fails to deliver consistent results at higher speeds. A socket based test would be preferred.
By the way folks, OOKLA is the host of such speed tests as SPEAKEASY, SPEEDTEST.NET and a few others.
The test is usually very inaccurate, and a little on the HIGH side.
I can't believe the FTC is using OOKLA to host their speedtest...
