Samknows tells you your speed to the hub, speed test tells you the speed to your device

Yes Iโ€™m aware of that but Samknows has speed to the PC at 485Mbps but a Speedtest always reads about 850-900Mbps ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ

Re: Who do we believe?

would probably all depend on what server is being used for the speedtest, CPU usage, WiFi interference at the time of test etc

I work for VMO2 but all opinions are my own and are based on my own experiences

Iโ€™d trust the Speedtest results every single time.

Can't say I trust how VM are doing Samknows speed test to the hub then to a PC makes no sense but then you can't do any speed test any where and then expect that speed from any where. Speed test will one day be a thing of the past.

Re: Who do we believe?

Samknows on the right is displaying the speed of the download running through a browser while Ookla is an effiecient app.

I always find browser tests to be much less than others - and different browsers will give a wide range of readings too.

I've been able to get 900Mbps on the PCF side in Edge after closing everything else on my PC. I suspect a lot of this variation is device dependent.

Re: Who do we believe?

Hi there @SVTCOL

 

Thank you so much for your post and I am so sorry that you have gotten these varied speed test results. 

 

Can I ask if you are noticing any issues at all with your services? 

 

Thank you.

Re: Who do we believe?

No real issues as such just questions around the low speed reporting by Samknows to the PC compared to Speedtest via the app and on the Speedtest webpage. Seems a big drop from router to PC via a cat8 cable and a 10Gbps network card ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™‚๏ธ

Re: Who do we believe?

No problem and I'm glad there are no real issues but I am still sorry to see this drop in speed. 

 

Have you been able to try a speed test on this device with another Ethernet cable just in case? 

 

Thank you.
