    Do you guys check your speed with speedtest.net? Using Safari, I get 136Mbps down and 900+ up on a fiber connection. I get normal results using a site like dslreports.com.

    Firefox on the other hand will show 900+ down and up on speedtest. I assume it is something to do with Safari and the sites method of testing but asking to see if anyone has any ideas. A windows pc on speedtest is showing full speed.

    Not a big deal, just curious if anyone else sees it too.

    Not for me, that is the one I use because I do not have flash installed and dont plan to. No matter which location I select, I see 136 down and 900+ up. It only happens with Safari.

    No issue for me. I get 200 down and 100 up on a fibre connection and no glitches or false reports.

    Interesting, thanks for the reply. Cant imagine what it might be here. Not a big deal but curious.

    If I use the speedtest app I get full speed both ways.

    Those work well for me as well along with the Speedtest app. Beta 1 was not working at all with dslreports but does work with beta 2.
