Are the results of self-conducted speed diagnostics, conducted through specialized websites, reliable?
Unfortunately, such tests cannot guarantee the precise results and are not considered reliable.The received data will be inaccurate.
Firstly, the speed of different browsers (Explorer, Google chrome etc.) and estimations by different hosts (http://2ip. ru/, http://internet. yandex. ru/, http://www. speedtest. net/ etc.) will vary.
Secondly, the wiring diagram used while testing is of high importance, namely inline or by tapping into routing devices that might cut on traffic.
Thirdly, it is necessary to understand that the testing results of a loaded channel shows the residual carrying capacity rather than nominal. In case of 100% network load, the speed issues can be observed.
For more accurate diagnostics, it is advised to take readings directly from the channel port and resources within our network since the quality of speed beyond its limits cannot be guaranteed. Gars Telecom possesses its own server which operates on the same principles as 2ip. ru (http://st. garstelecom. ru).
