Speed Tests ---Ookla
« on: April 14, 2015, 08:49:44 PM »

Doing a test I noticed that my results screen is other than most I've seen. I doesn't give things like quality, as you'll see from attachment. As of habit I may have gone to the wrong linl, but do not think so.
If the one I have is valid. it isn't progress IMO.

Im not quite sure what you meant either, but if it helps I'll attach a copy of mine below. {see screen capture as attachment}

---------

Then when you've done the test, you can click the "Share this Result" button just underneath the download speed.
This will give you a url that you can paste into forums and will come up like this:-




You can also create an account and log a list of your results.

Hi Kitz! As it happens you have illustrated why I posted. Why did the test I made get the rubbish version I attached, whilst your test produced the sensible and useful version?

Just checking that after you hit the "Share My Result" Button, that you select the forum option?

I can imagine the frustrations of those of UncleUB's ilk, and consider myself fortunate. TBH I really wonder if comments such as ' your connection is slower than xx% of the UK', though factual, is morally justified. Firstly it compares results from different technologies, of which one is totally dependent on a  crumbling infrastructure. Should one lump apples and turnips together? ::)

The other matter is how much actual real time is saved (I mean total minutes in ones 'computer day) by having a connection that is 5X faster than ADSL. Take out all related tasks such as reading what is downloaded, preparing what is uploaded and so on. Is one actually achieving a 5X larger output, as the marketeers and camp followers would have everyone believe?

I do like technology even so, and we do need improved communications to compete. However for Joe Bloggs some is over-hyped against his needs.
