BANDWIDTH & BROADBAND SPEED TESTS ARE NOT CREATED EQUAL|
Broadband Speed Test, Broadband Benchmark, Bandwidth Test, Internet Speed Test, Connection Test, it doesn't matter what we call them, it's the end result and how you get there that matters. Whether you use Cable, DSL, ADSL, FiOS, T1 or Satellite as your delivery method, it's important to know the bandwidth, capacity, quality and operational status of your connection and it's just as important to get this information from a reliable source.

Many Internet Service Providers (ISPs) are talking about changing from a monthly subscription model to a usage model, much in the way that analog public telephone service has changed over time. It is not surprising, therefore, that most Internet users encounter performance related service problems on a fairly regular basis and want to validate that their ISPs are delivering the contracted service performance.
As a result there are multitudes of broadband speed test websites to be found on the Internet. Some of these testing services are provided by the ISP, while many are provided by independent third parties. Naturally the key question is, “Is the broadband speed test accurate?” And if the broadband speed test results do not meet expectations, does the tester provide the data to resolve the unexpected results?
Unfortunately, all broadband speed test services are not created equal and the testing applications rarely define the method used to conduct the test. Without understanding the testing methodology, validating the results is a difficult or impossible task for the user, regardless of their skill level. The complaint most echoed around the Internet discussion groups is, “Why is this video download taking so long when my broadband speed test service shows I get my full 10Mbps?”
The problem is not the in the measurement, it's in understanding the test results as they relate to the application problem being experienced. Causing more frustration is that most sites don't take into consideration all aspects of current broadband technologies such as VoIP, IPTV, QoS and streaming video and audio. At ISPgeeks.com we take the guesswork out of all things broadband, not just broadband speed test.
