why web side speed tests do not work
When trying to verify their satellite connection speed with a web side based test, many customers are shocked about the results.
Those tests are available on several websites like C-NETs Bandwith Meter.
It is useless to use those test to verify speed connections, as all those tests rely on the fact that reference files are getting downloaded and uploaded and the time is calculated.
As a result of the latency which is extraordinary high, those tests show incorrect and sometimes even crazy results.
a better solution
It's a much better solution to connect only ONE PC and then install a software program like Hagel Soft www.dumeter.com on this computer. A measurement with dumeter will result in correct speed results which can get stored for historical analysis. The program is free of use for 30 days.
