Throttled My Speed To 12-14 kbps after I exceeded my data allowance.

Re: Throttled My Speed To 12-14 kbps after I exceeded my data allowance.

I remember back in the late 90s and early 2000s, I could do 10MB in a little under an hour, on average.  Updates back then were feasible with that speed, but certainly not today.  Can you imagine a Net Framework update on those speeds?  Ugh!   

BTW, great site.  It can come in handy.

It shows why when we are getting 20 Mbps speeds the 12MB test jumps to much larger file sizes as only takes 5 seconds and Testmy.net needs 7 seconds of steady speed.

That's why, during the off peak times when I get those 20+ Mbps speeds, I use the 15MB test, rather than letting it jump up to the 30+ MB sizes due to the 12MB test not lasting long enough, so I don't waste data.  I do use the 12MB test for peak times, though.
