Try a test with ShaperProbe. (It attempts to detect traffic rate-limiting and power boosts and gives the sustained speed result after the initial boost)

 

Is it different in any meaningful way from DSLReports?

I'm not sure but it takes about 2-4 minutes to run a test with it, I just mentioned it because I have used it before and have noticed a lot in the Comcast HSI Forum at DSLR recommend using it.

The upper test with a peak at around 54. Earlier I was getting tests around 6.

 

Going through DSLReports to another system that provides comprehensive testing results I got the following information:

Not sure what to make of all that, but your upload  speeds have always amazed me. Outstanding!

 

Wonder why so few people use DSLReports.com?

For what its worth my Optonline Ultra hit 115.22 down and 37.25 just now wirelessly. Until I went to a faster router I could never hit any better than what You Show. And that was wired.

 

The readings I just posted are to the same NYC server as yours from NJ and Via Wireless.

I believe that the Wireless is due to using a Netgear A6200 Dual band USB Adapter and connected on the 5Ghz band with a matching 802.11ac Router.

I usually get over 100Mbps easily. When I did this test, my son was playing on the PS3 and I was downloading some huge files over the net. Perhaps this has something to do with getting just 90Mbps

I tried to use it and gave up when the one for higher speeds wanted Java. I do not have Java installed anywhere. That is the one instance this Year where Java would have been used.

 

So No DSLReports.com speedtest for me. I'll just keep using Speedtest.net

Most Likely. My Old router's wireless speed was not impressive, Even Now having tried two different high speed routers only the 5Ghz band gives good results.

 

Maybe someone else will get some good from my post. I didn't realize just how much my old router was holding me back until I had to turn on the Wireless. That was when I started looking and researching.

 

Cheers

This is possible, All Cat5 (cat5e) is not created equal.

Glad to hear it was a easy fix for you

I recently upgraded from Roadrunner Turbo (20 Mbps down) to Roadrunner Extreme (30 Mbps down). It required a new modem. Here are my first Speedtest results.

I just upgraded to 50/25 FiOS from 25/25 (no longer offered) and got 59/38 in a speed test with wireless connection.

 

I have three computers, an iPod Touch, and iPad and AppleTV. Not all of these are running at the same time.

Fluffybear, Good Download, Upload looks a little slow. On Optimum Online I get 117 down and 37 up, for some reason I would have expected Yours to be the same way.

Maybe we will get better UP speeds when Comcast finishes doing what ever it is they are doing around the area..

You can only hope so. I find the faster upload handy when I send PDFs and images from the scanner.

I've been scanning family photos and sending them to the rest of the family.

UP speed is really not all that important to us as we really don't share all that much.
