What's Servers Do You Test With?
Everyone's config servers will differ. I'd just like to get an idea what everyone uses. Mine is below;

I use a personaly hosted 500MB file added 4 times. This seems to work well even though its the same URL the end result is more stable.

Well personally i find that on a standard 8Mb/s ADSL connection in the UK the following 3 are perfectly up to the job.

And even if there not set to multi-threaded they usually show a decent result , although i do use multi-T to save test time, reduce BW & get the best possible results.

i used the same as what @SpencerUk had set up - this way it made it fair for the tests I believe.

What you need to remember is that the goal is to max the connection out. Really the list is a little pointless as it should just use the whole list Smile

Yea very true, if your using multi-T, but in the end it gives the user that little more control over who hes connecting to

For the record, I have no problem with Polish xD lol

Generally I prefer to select servers as @jackdinn will tell you, early days of the software, ThinkBroadband server's were useless for speedtests...End of the day, the BT speedtester beats all xD

Kinda, the fact that it takes your actual ISP out of the loop during the test gives an unrealistic real work result. Assuming your ISP is doing things untoward of course
