I live in Middle Tennessee, why do the Hughes Net Speed test show my upload speeds 3 times faster than any other speed test I use? Hughes Net will show 3.5, 3, 2,8 and like speedtest.net will show 1.0 .89, .57. The downloads match pretty close.
You should use https://testmy.net/ to test speeds. They are more reliable. Comparing different speed tests isn't practical, since most speed tests are not all that good. If you get a free acount with Testmy.net, you can also have a record of your speeds, and it can also provide other information as well.
