Thoughts on TestMy.net

TestMy.net makes it very clear that they aren't associated with any particular service provider. A speed test provided by an ISP could be providing intentionally altered results, reflecting the bandwidth speed you think you're paying for. This definitely is not true for all ISP speed tests, but it's possible that something like that could happen.

After we ran our own test, we were able to see at what percentage faster or slower our bandwidth was than the average user of our service provider, as well as the average user in our country.

All the statistics provided by TestMy.net are 100% human-readable, meaning you don't need to compare charts and graphs to understand how your speeds rank.
