Just a heads up.

Most of you were probably asleep. We are taking around mid-night and continuing past 1:20 am.

The service was up BUT it was slow, intermittent and had TCP/IP issues. Most of the time you could not complete a speedtest! The speedtest would time out. Never seen that before.

But all seems well now. So just documenting this. OK?


~11:35 am Tuesday, September 29, 2015. Alton, NH.

First image from gstnetworks.net my preferred, quick-and-easy, speedtest.

Second is from the more elaborate speedtest.net.
I use the Comcast node in Boston
as opposed to the default node in Portland, ME.
Comcast has more bandwidth!

BOTH, however, use OOKLA technology.

Use gstnetworks.net to access the ‘GST Networks‘ speedtest — based on the same  Ookla technology as used by speedtest.net.

The results, i.e., bandwidth readings, haven’t changed — and that is good.

New interface identifies ISP, in my case MetroCast. That is neat.

Just wanted to share this with YOU.

gstnetworks.net, which is lightweight and nifty, is ALWAYS my preferred means of checking my bandwidth. IF gstnetworks.net gives me a decent reading I leave at that. These days I only use speedtest.net IF I have to do some ‘diagnostics’ to see what is wrong with my bandwidth. I recommend that you do the same. Start with IF gstnetworks.net.
