    Question Mark

    I am getting very different results from 2 speed test sites.

    Speakeasy.net - 5k down

    Speedtest.net - 11k down


    Uploads are the same, but the disparity between the two for downloads is strange. I have tried testing them a few times and get the same results.

    Strange part is that when I test my main PC, I get normal results. These erratic results are from my new lappy I just bought.

    The correct speed would be the one that's closest to the speed you get from your PC, or teh speed you pay for.

    For the record I get the same reslt from both sites.

    Maybie the different between the speedtests could be because of the Ping...

    well, what's the maximum download speed you getting??

    with 11k, you should be at 1.5mb/s download, with 5k, more like 600-700kb/s

    and yea, you can also see on ur provider site, they usualy say upload and download speed
