  • Speedtest

    Is it me or are all the speed test sites very slow. such as speedtest.net sometimes get close to 900Mb up or down but rare and the latency is all over the place.

    We have a 10Gbps port with Linx and can never get above 900Mb via a single flow. If we send a few flows from different A Ends to the same B end then we can see the port on our server goes over 1Gbps

    just ordered a off net server with IOMart with 10Gbps Uplink to run some iperf tests

    I've never seen speedtest.net actually operate well for high speed connection testing. Generally gets limited by CPU IIRC.

        Hello,

        The speedtest server is probably limited by a 1000 mbits network card

          To find a reliable merchant account/payment gateways for a tech support business?

          The 3 major ways are bycomparison, user reviews, or recommendation. I always prefer the last though. So before you opt for any provider you need to be sure of the following:
          • How soon you need to start accepting payments
          • How much you want to spend on a payment gateway
          • How soon you need to receive funds from your sales
          • Does the payment gateway offer international payments?
          • How secure the payment gateway is
          • The level of support the payment gateway offer
          • types of cards accepted by the Payment Gateway
          • Does the payment gateway offer automatic recurring payments?

          When you have answers and assurance to all these, then you can go for the right merchant account/payment gateways like QuickBooks Pro vs Premier vs Enterprise Cloud for your tech support business.

            You can check the internet speed in terms of download speed and upload speed of your data network which can be 2G, 3G, or 4G. There are numerous apps to check perform speed tests, some of the popular ones are:
            • RantCell
            • Spedtest
            • Fast
            • HighSpeed Internet
            • Testmy.

              None of the speed test sites are reliable or accurate.
              They give you approximate results.
