I’ve been using Speedtest.net for quite a while, but I might as well check out some others.

When we were on charter, checking speedtest.net would induce faster speeds for about 5 min.

I started connecting via incognito mode, then just went with fast.com that charter didn’t try to game.

I have not seen the same chananigans with our fiber provider.

This can be very important to sort out issues. I love our fiber ISP, but for awhile we could get fast pings to the local server, but terribly slow outside to a neighboring state. You had to be sure to go to one of the outside hubs to show them they had issues. Took them about a month to fix, but only after a lot of public peer pressure on Twitter.
