My fing reports download speeds about 1/2 of what I get when I run the test from my PC. Both Fing and my PC are connected to router, yet report differently. The PC is reporting what I pay for. Fing ois wrong

    @mashevloff , fing uses mlabs for its internet speed test provider.  Try a test against it and see what the results directly are.  Post your results back here.  Do both the Fing and mlabs tests one after the other so we can see if they sync up.

    The results are the same as Fing - but OOKla shows me as faster - guess it's not a precise science???
