I was only bringing this up as a possibile reason why your Microsoft download was going so incredibly slowly while testmy.net is showing your speed to be much higher than the download time would indicate.
But, with that said, if you can post your testmy.net results URL, it would help, especially regarding the upload speeds being much higher than the download speeds, as you explained in your original post.
Being that you've already run some Hughesnet speed tests, they can look at them, too, but you don't need to post them as those can be access on their end. With that said, though, as Corrosive explained, those tests not matching could be due to congestion, or just Hughes' test being wonky. I've found that when I run Hughes' speed test the results are usually pretty close to testmy.net's, but when they aren't they tend to be widly off.
If you would like, instead of creating an account (though it's highly recomended for your personal records, and to make tracking your issues easier) when you do the manual test, you can click on "Share this result" then click on "Result URL" and post each individual test. Just note, you will have to do that for each and every test.
I have notified the testmy.net administrators of the email issue for account registration.
I plan to post those results...as soon as I can get registered. At this point, I still cannot get registered, so cannot post the results.
That's right. I apologize. I had forgotten about you not being able to create the account right now due to an issue at testmy. It's been a LONG day (been up since 2AM).
It looks like you had a few from earlier, as well, and even though they don't reflect the much lower speed you are seeing in the evening they will still be helpful. Evidently they were still included, even though you were not able to verify your account at the time.
This is the link that will allow the reps to see all of your test results. http://testmy.net/quickstats/ceraandrob
Good morning CMcIntire,
Thank you for running the tests, we'll include this on our list to engineering. Once we have any updates to share I'll post back.
Your patience and understanding are much appreciated.
