Is the speed test what you are close to paying for in the final numbers?

Did you try other sites?

1/3 of highway deaths are caused by drunks. The rest are by people who can't drive any better than a drunk.

I don't understand what close to paying for means. speedtest is free. Other tests show simular results, even roadrunner,which is the provider.One thing I left out ie8 works in safe mode.
thank you

What I meant was. At the end of the test there should be a final number that shows up and down speeds. Is that speed shown somewhat close to the speeds that you are paying for.

I'm sorry I wasn't thinking. The download speed varies from a little below to a little above what I pay for, which is 7 mps. However the upload speed (pay for .512 mps)went to half; from .49 mps to .22 . In safemode down. speed doubles to 14.+ mps and upload speed returns to .49. Thank you
