Re: [HSI] Is Charter testing faster speeds?

Its POWERBOOST, since speedtest only last for a short duration, the test is in that stage when you run it.

i'm on the 30/4. I get 66mbps.

So, don't get excited, its not an upgrade! LOL

This morning I ran a speed test and it's faster than usual. I was wondering if charter was doing speed upgrades. Here is the test I just ran. I'm on the ultra100 plan.

I was hoping. I ran it again and got 108 down so you're probably right. I was under the impression that the ultra100 didn't use powerboost though.

Thank you. I just ran a test at testmy.net and received the results below.

None of those short tests are any good.

The only consistent result I get is by starting several large downloads simultaneously then adding the speeds or monitoring it in my firewall/router.

Its not powerboost. The ultra service tier does not use it. If you don't believe me. Ask Charter and they will tell you the same. Only the other tiers use it. I still would like to see better upload speeds instead and bonding for the upload.

Totally agree that is the BEST way to test, but most people just want a quick check like any speed test site does.

That testmy.net site is about as inaccurate most of the time as any flash test also. Totally depends on time of day and what browser you're using there.
