Is the iOS speed test accurate?

Hi all,

Just a quick question but does the speed test in the iOS app test the actual speed of the theoretical router throughput. Might be a stupid question but I’m getting tests in excess of 350Mb on my 73Mb line.

I can assure you that I’m not getting anywhere near these speeds and it’s closer to 50Mb.

This is a problem as I’m trying to use the monthly report to dispute my bill.

I'd be interested to hear your thoughts.

Many thanks

J

    Ah, I see what your doing.  Thats your internal networks WiFi speed test your seeing to which your high numbers make more sense.  You need to run the ISP speed test.  You can access it from the mobiles app home page.  See graphic below...

    Hey @Jamzieth , Fing uses M-labs as their speed test provider.  You should try their speed test directly first to see if it concurs with what your seeing.  See below for URL from a previous thread.

    Hi Everyone

    Can you please check if M-Lab speed test is the same from link below?
    https://speed.measurementlab.net/#/

    That is the partner we use for speed measurement, so if Fing results are not in line with the ones reported by M-Lab, we definitely have to fix something.

    I think either something needs fixing or I want Fing to start providing my connection 🤣
