    Thoughts on BETA Speedtest?


    Hi all, just a thread to ask what are all your thoughts on the new Speedtest BETA?

    Personally I actually can't get it to work yet... But I have downloaded the app through the Windows Store and that seems to work fine. No ads so far!

    EDIT: It works for me if I manually enter my location

    I am also using SamKnows with their new box as I have ATT Fiber at 1Gb.

    Speed test has a lot slower readings. 300-400 Mbps

    My SamKnows readings OnNet (ATT Server) runs a steady 620-650 Mbps and OffNet over 900Mbs. SamKnows says that ATT test server needs updating as it is maxing out.

    Before I upgraded I had Charter at 60Mbs and both SamKnows and Speedtest read the same.

    I do like new interface. Nice and clean

    Hi there

    It sometimes will ping server but then page won't load

    When it DOES work it's passable - but I think I prefer previous versions.

    Cheers

    I like the clean look.....I bet the mobile app is the same. Works just fine for me.

    Hi there

    Mobile app works fine -- still random page load errors with Beta on a PC (both W10 and Linux Hosts).

    Cheers

    No issues here, not offered any new look

    My 38Mb/s Down / 10Mb/s Up line a few minutes ago ...



    is slightly slower to load the graphics than I remember it a few years ago but that's been like it for a while, Software Change ?

    I did like the map like world navigation. I think it was a great visual aid, but now I can only have a scroll down menu to choose from. I wonder if they might implement this again... Maybe they are instead headed for a more light weight simplistic look.
