Old and new Xfinity speed tests...2 radically different results
So we upgraded our internert to the Comcast Business 500 download speed plan. Sitting at my desk and running a speed test on http://speedtest.xfinity.com/. My results are 423.7 down/ 38.0 up, about what I would expect. When I use the "try our new speed test," link which takes you to https://speedtest-beta.xfinity.com/ i'm getting 117 download speed. (It doesn't report an upload speed.) Getting very similar results across multiple runs of both.
In comparison Speedtest by Ookla (https://www.speedtest.net/) shows 122.34 down/38.72 up. Very similar to the new beta xfinity speed test but much lower thatn the original Xfinity speed test.
I'm do have a Sonicwall UTM device and I"m not debating the effect that would have. I"m asking why the radically different results on new vs old Xfinity speed tests.
