Monthly speedtest report differs from manual speedtest
After I changed provider, the monthly reports show an alarmingly low connection speed. However, when I check manually the speed is just fine, regardless the time of day.
The connection speed is 500mbit/s synchronous. Before switching provider, the monthly reports would report averages between 450 & 500 mbit/s for both up and download. This was confirmed in practice: macOS updates would usually come in at 45 to 55MB/s.
After changing provider, macOS updates (or any other download really as long as the server end would cope) continue to come is at the usual speed. However the monthly Fing reports consistently shows speeds just under 100mbit/s for both up and download. When I check manually using the Fing app the speed is just fine and around the 500/500mbit.
So I'm getting reports that don't appear to reflect reality. Is there anything I can do on my end to fix this? It almost looks like Fing isn't even trying to get beyond 100/100 when it does its regular checks.
