I have been following the recent MyBroadband Speed Test App competition and was wondering what the fastest speed was that has been achieved?
Has anyone been able to top the one I got on Saturday morning :

I was exactly 1km away from the tower using a stock Nokia 5.

I've had a few 50's on towers that did not have many people on them. Makes me wonder if it's even possible to get close to the advertised 100mbps LTE claims is possible.

I have a 200Mbps line with RSAWEB and when I used the app, I can't get more than 50 down or up - but if I use FAST.com or Speedtest.net then I do.

I've tried numerous times with the MyBB app and never more than 50± down and up so I don't trust it.
Yes I know it's not MOBILE but still... should still give proper test shouldn't it?

So what you are suggesting is that maybe the bottleneck then is the myBB test servers?

I don't know bud.

I just did a test now (remotely logging into my PC)

Fast.com 190
Speedtest.net 190/190

But when I ran the MyBB web: 50/50
Then I reran it and 49/50

Immediately ran Fast.com 180

Good point, I think next time I go on a speed test ride I'll run both after each other. Should have done that on Saturday but I did not think of it :(

DANG!!!!

Ok, suddenly mine looks less impressive. Next time I'll use both myBB app and speedtest one.
