Thread: Speedtest's Speed Wave - Compare your ISP speeds for real

    Default Speedtest's Speed Wave - Compare your ISP speeds for real

    Hi folks

    I don't see any mention of speed wave, so I took the liberty to create one:

    http://www.speedtest.net/wave/03a8d669663e7af1

    This will give us much needed data until Ookla puts up enough metrics for Bangladesh and lists ISPs in the Awards.

    I think this is a much better option than posting our speed tests. Mods please feel free to move this around or delete if you deem unnecessary.

    Thanks Zunaid and everyone else who joined the Speed Wave. I see Link3 has good ping! [1] Otherwise, it seems we have no control if someone does choose to test against a local server, which skews the average. But this is certainly helpful.

    [1] Filtering out all download speeds above 30 Mbps (safe to assume this is BDIX speed through wireless N, the one with 90+Mbps is wired or wireless AC; otherwise non-residential).

    Most of the tests I assume are local, through BDIX or a BDIX-connected server, which gets selected by default by Speedtest if you don't opt to choose a different one.

    I specifically suggested in the description to test against overseas server, but unfortunately there is no way to enforce this.

    Speeds of 15 Mbps can be normal now (AalokIT provides a 2000Tk 15Mbps package) and but definitely not 30+ Mbps.
