    Does anyone else have the problem of when you are on wifi with your broadband. I'm on comcasts extreme 105 that the speed test app freaks out and bounces around like a crazy person and settles on crazy speeds like 2.5 meg?

    it did this when i had at&t and tested the cell network, it bounced all over then showed horrible speeds. verizons LTE is a smooth climb then it plateaus perfectly. my home wifi is the same. the needle pins out and stays there.

    Yes. I have 30/5 and the Speedtest app on my home wi-fi is pretty much worthless. It just jumps around. It seems to fall over at higher speeds.

    I have one and really like it. Nice having backups automated and not having to worry about it. Here is a good review of the current version.
