OOKLA Speedtest with Graphs


[link to this post]
 
This OOKLA Speedtest http://internet-speedtest.net/ shows its results as graphs, much like the TBB Speedtest (?), and unlike the normal http://www.speedtest.net/ .

I understand it is the official AOL/TalkTalk speedtest facility and giving your phone number may feed your info back to AOL/TalkTalk smile.

All depends on how much and what features people pay Ookla for.

Still reports wrong figures if the connection is interrupted on the downstream, ie. drop connected for 10 seconds I still get a decent speed reported. Which can help to hide speed issues when connections have packet loss or stalls.

Not championing it; just reporting its existence.
