Speedtest results export

Like many, Ive been a user of Speedtest to measure network performance. Most often I use it on a wifi connection (I have no devices except an Ooma Telo directly connected to my router).

Id never realized that Speedtest makes it easy to export results in CSV format. On my iOS devices this is done by clicking the share icon while viewing the results screen. It drops you into your email with a prepared message containing the CSV data as an attachment.

Its pretty convenient and easy to work with to analyze with your favorite spreadsheet program.

I wish Id have known this before as it can be useful in many instances when troubleshooting!

Good and useful tip, thanks.

I found Speedtest useful a couple of years ago to discover my ISP was charging me for 50 Mbps and only delivering 20. The argued with me that the advertised rate was not guaranteed blah blah, but after pushing them hard enough they finally admitted they had failed to throw the switch on their end.

[Holy cow, I just ran it after reading this thread and got 94 Mbps. They must have upped the speed to nominal 100 and I missed it.]

{edited again to add} So, I thought I'd check their current offers and the slowest speed is now 150. Grrr... A call to them fixed that.

Speedtest is a well known destination that ISPs can give it preferred routing/access.
I always get higher speedtest numbers than I measure downloading files.

Speedtest results export

Im surprised to see that my iTouch Speedtest results go back to mid-2016. Lots has changed over that time including homes, in-home networking equipment and even a change in ISP (Time Warner to Spectrum, both are Charter I think).

The deltas in the measurements are whats interesting to me. I also had to work with Spectrum to get them to deliver the speeds advertised with the plan. It changed the measurement from about 50 Mbps to 200+ Mbps.

I see noticeable variation depending on the time of day and wifi band in use.

I've timed downloads of big files from fast sites as a validation. Curious...where do you upload to for your speed tests?
