Time Warner Complaint - Fake speed test with Time Warner
Did you notice that the techs from Time Warner always send you to speedtest.net or speakeasy.net or their own website for your speed test?
Well, sorry but 95% of TWC customers are fooled by the results. The 3 websites give you between 10 and 20 mbps in download and 1 to 2 mbps in upload, it depends on what kind of plan you have, right? When you read the results you're satisfied, right But in the reality, when you're downloading or uploading from different servers you are far from this "blasting" speeds, right?
It's simple, it's an ugly conspiracy and a thievery. Why? because there is a booster behind these servers installed by Time Warner techs to give you false results. Let me explain. My plan is a Turbo+ and a Mac G5 desktop which means I should be getting between 18 to 20 mbps in download. My results with Time Warner website, speekeasy.net and speedtest.net is between 20 mbps and 25 mbps in download... WOW!! ...... Great! you'll say, but, mysteriously, when I make a test with other websites (and they are legion), I get a maximum of 3 to 6 mbps in download and this result is completely accurate with my actual download. Believe me I did several tests and I downloaded and uploaded different size and kind of files from different servers.
My question is why all this websites are accurate and saying the same thing in term of speed except speekeasy.net, speed test.net and Time Warner website?
I reported that to Time Warner, the answer was, "sorry we don't use these websites for our speed test"... Yeah right!!!! It's much easier to still our hard earned money by faking the results.
The proof is bellow and it's your turn now to try any of these 8 speed test websites like I did and compare the results you have with Time Warner or Speedtest.net or Speakeasy.net. You'll see that the results are more accurate with your actual speed and you'll be enraged.
Please count me in for any class action law suit.
