    Speed test recommendations?


    I've been using http://beta.speedtest.net/ but I just got through with an exhaustive two separate night support case with AT&T Fiber Optic where it was shown to be incredibly inaccurate.

    Is there a better more accurate speed test out there?

    Thanks I'll try that one tonight. I'm still wondering why the Ookla speedtest.net was so off bad on the PC and a laptop but was accurate using a smartphone?

    I heard Ookla speedtest.net and internet service providers (ISP) has a agreement to use the nearest ISP servers by Ookla speedtest.net for broadband speed test.

    Look in the MS Store and use "Speedtest by Ookla" It will only run on Windows 10. I am running AT&T Fiber Gigapower.

    Why is this one different that what you run from the Ookla website? Here is what it shows. I can't figure out how to attach a picture of it like you did and I read through the tutorial that is supposed to show you how to do it. When I try to insert an image from the test URL nothing happens.

    All you have to do is a Ctl-printscreen when the app has finished and then when your on here and want to insert the screen print just pasted it (Ctl-V) in your reply message.

    What is Ctl-printscreen? Just paste the URL into the body of the message? Because I tried that and all that appears is the link. I tried to insert the link using the image button above and nothing happened. It was blank.

    The website version runs in the Browser as an extension process while the new one from the Windows Store does not use the Browser and runs in its own process.

    The current website version uses Flash but the website Beta does not use Flash.

    On my test the using Firefox the older version (Flash) is the slowest (10% slower) with the Beta (no-Flash) being better (5% slower) but the MS Store version is the fastest.

    For me the store one reports much slower than the web version.
