I've upped my Internet connection (from 300 Mbps) to 1,000 Mbps download speed.
I was very surprised to not
notice any improvement!
After removing advert blockers and other apps, I still didn't see any difference in the speed online, so I began wondering what on earth could be wrong. I mean, you should notice a difference between 300 and 1000, shouldn't you? (The answer is Yes
First off, I checked what my own IS (=Internet Supplier)'s speedtester (https://kundeservice...oblem/hastighedstest
) had to say: 138 Mbps down. Hm... that was a disapppointment by itself - not even close to the 300 I had been paying for, not to mention the new 1000!
I downloaded a series of Internet browsers and tested them at once. By "at once", I mean: Download, install, run!
No apps or settings of any kind, just paste https://www.speedtest.net/
>Enter >and click GO!
I was in shock: The results were all in the area of 43 - 124 Mbps. They should kiss a thousand
Internet Expl: 97
Later, an in-browser-app for Edge: 154MBps
I have been in daily contact with my IS, but has been put on hold until Corona allows them to visit my home again.
But then one of their technicians phoned me and asked eh... have you not tested with Ookla Speedtester's APP? You should!
This was the first time I heard about it: an app for local speedtesting (https://www.speedtest.net/apps
). I now have it (Speedtest by Ookla) and my online connection apparently is, as it should be (I have not fully reached a thousand, but almost): 826⁺Mbps
But the various Internet browsers are still wheelchairing at 43 - 154 Mbps. How can my Internet browsers all be so extremely slow?
WHY, oh, WHY?!!
