I've done a lot of speed tests over the last few months because of various problems on my fibre line. the thinkbroadband test consistently reports speeds that are within a couple of megs of the actual sync speed at any one time and I haven't found any other speed test that achieves this.

I suppose if you just stick with one test then you get to understand its quirks and its worthwhile anyway, but its nice to know that the reported download speed of a test is at least close to your sync speed. It also highlights that variations in the download speed are attributable to other factors.

It over-reported my download speed and massively under-reported my upload speed, apart from that it's fine!

Under reported both. I think only reporting a third of the upload speed is a little too much of a margin of error!!

Who really knows how reliable any of them are? For me on ADSL Speedof.me is closer to BT Wholesale speed test than Thinkbroadband which appears to under-report download speed. I am running on Linux Mint.

It reported my download speed fairly accurately ... at first. Then on successive attempts it decayed monotonically (less-and-less). Closed that window and start again in a new window ... exactly the same ... back to normal then decayed frown.

Not seeing that here. I ran several in a row which came out almost the same. Google Chrome, if that makes a difference.

Seems the best of the bunch here despite distance from server. Chrome here also as had a belly full of Firefox memory leaks. Speeds not good here today. Were 13mb earlier, but had another service drop from Freeola/Enta this morning, then the usual heavy lunchtime packet loss (Business priority), which resulted in interleaving again. Then I switched to my hacked Homehub 3.0 which is slower anyway, just to eliminate problems with my Billion 7800N. Judging by my exchange connection speed, speedof.me seems to be nearer to what I should be getting. Roll on next Wednesday and service switch to Pulse8, cannot be any worse.
