My Internet connection has been pretty spotty lately. But the speedtest says everything is fine and the ISP is good too. What's the issue here? Is there another way to test my connection?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

That speedtest usually tests connection bandwidth coming from the provider — but the experience you get can also be affected by factors on your own system, including malware.

Better you clean you own system thoroughly, have it properly updated, and then see the result. If it’s still the same then check it with another properly configured system on your own network — and then decide if the issue is with the provider.

    People who are using cat5 cable, this is turned out as an unplugged network connection. You can test different speedtest web sites to observe that, if the results are almost same. You can try this by navigating like speedtest.net; fast.com; testmy.net; or speedof.me.
