ISP Delivers Fake Results!

When I tested more than a half-dozen network speed calculators, the results varied by a factor greater than 10: the lowest reported download speed was a snail's-pace 783Kbps using's Flash-based test. Another test using the same service resulted in a download speed reading of 11.237Mbps.

Conversely, the results of the upload tests at the various services were consistently at or just under 2Mbps. The exceptions were upload-test results at, whose testing was so inconsistent I ended up discarding all of the service's results.

I ran the tests at about a dozen times: three times the download results were under 1Mbps, five times they were between 1Mbps and 4Mbps, twice they were around 8Mbps, and three times the download speed the test reported topped 10Mbps.

The most consistent test results were recorded at Speakeasy's Flash-based Speed Test and at's HTML5-based tester. Of course, the services' tests may be consistently wrong. After running several tests over a span of days, all of Speed Test's download results were within a few kilobits of 11.5Mbps.'s download scores in both its single- and multithread tests exhibited a bit more range than those of Speakeasy's Speed Test, but they averaged about 11.2Mbps.

The results of the HTML5-based speed tests conducted at Bandwidth Place ranged from 5Mbps to 11Mbps, those at exhibited a similar range, and the Flash-based tests at ZDNet's Broadband Speed Test recorded speeds from 5.8Mbps to 11.4Mbps.

With only one exception, all the download tests I ran at the AT&T Internet Speed Test and at Ookla's indicated speeds of 11.5Mbps or greater. One of the dozen-or-so tests recorded a download speed of 10.4Mbps, and several of Ookla's Flash-based test results exceeded 12.5Mbps for downloads.

HTML5-based speed tests such as those offered by and seem to have an advantage in that they require no additional software. If you suspect you're paying for more bandwidth than you're actually getting, you needn't trust your ISP's test results to make your case -- especially if you happen to live in one of your service's dead zones. Hello, Pocatello!

What is significant? Well, if you buy 100M x 10M and you see average speeds of 75M X6M, you don't have a service problem. If the next package sold is 50M x5M and you are consistently getting 45Mx3M, THEN you have a problem that the service departments will address. If you have 100M x 10M and you consistently get MAY be a service issue worth looking into. That will come down to how many tests are run and where. And they will all need to be close in the results. If one site shows a significantly lower test then it's likely that site.

One more things. While a provider could technically fake a speedtest, it serves no purpose. They want to know when there are problems on the network so they can fix them before they become bigger problems. They want happy customers so they don't go elsewhere. With that said, they also get extremely frustrated at the weight most customers put into speedtests and the misinformation surrounding them. We've had people call in complaining about speeds only to find that they had a 10/100 switch in line, or their wifi was on the same channels as 50 others at an apartment building, or they had a bad cable, or jack, and countless other reasons which is why the policies exist that say that if we roll a truck and find it's not us, then you have to pay us.

An Ohio man created a fake broadband provider in order to scam low-income consumers who thought they were getting government-funded discounts on Internet service and devices, according to the Federal Communications Commission. In a Notice of Apparent Liability for Forfeiture released Friday, the FCC proposed a fine of $220,210 against alleged scammer Kyle Traxler.

A lot of lists are outdated, with typos, or have fake email addresses. The best way to ensure that your hard work gets seen is by cleaning up your lists! The most efficient and competent way to clean your lists, no matter the size, is with Emailable!

You might receive multiple types of Amazon SNS notifications for one recipient. For example, the receiving mail server might accept the email (triggering a delivery notification), but after processing the email, the receiving mail server might determine that the email actually results in a bounce (triggering a bounce notification). However, these are always separate notifications because they are different notification types.

There is also a countdown presented, which shows how much time remains to win the fake gifts. After the survey is completed, another web page is displayed that congratulates users for winning the prize. It mentions that the Apple iPhone X is already out of stock, however, they have won the Samsung device.

PUAs can deliver intrusive advertisements (pop-ups, banners, surveys, coupons, etc.), which significantly diminish the browsing experience, cause redirects to harmful pages and stealthily download/install unwanted content. Other PUA types can modify browsers, restrict/deny access to settings and promote fake search engines.

Pop-up windows with various fake messages are a common type of lures cybercriminals use. They collect sensitive personal data, trick Internet users into calling fake tech support numbers, subscribe to useless online services, invest in shady cryptocurrency schemes, etc.

Cybercriminals and deceptive marketers usually use various advertising networks, search engine poisoning techniques, and shady websites to generate traffic to their pop-ups. Users land on their online lures after clicking on fake download buttons, using a torrent website, or simply clicking on an Internet search engine result.

ODDS is implementing a new rate structure for 24-hour residential services, employment, and day support activities beginning July 1, 2022, as part of the Compass project. The new rate structure is based on individual Oregon Needs Assessment (ONA) results which assign the individual a service group and corresponding payment category. While for some individuals, providers will receive an increase in the service payment rate, some will experience a decrease due to the ONA service group assignment. ODDS is facilitating webinars by Zoom to discuss provider rate exceptions.

In short, people who sell fake email lists collect addresses for those lists in a variety of ways, such as scraping the internet, purchasing and creating them in bulk, and more. If you buy a fake or low quality list, it will likely have both recycled and honeypot addresses on it, and you will get caught if you send messages to them.

Many companies that run fake email list sales operations register a variety of domains to send their email messages to unsuspecting list buyers. They purchase these domains, use them for a short time, and then switch to another.

Email verifiers show you detailed results. They can show undeliverable, incorrect, role-based addresses, so your messages land on the desired destination. With this information in your hands, you can remove unnecessary addresses to reduce bounce rates.

When you are aware of useful email addresses on your list, you can send emails to only those users. This means the percentage of emails getting delivered into the right inbox increases. You can now compare previous results with the current result to see the improvements in email deliverability.

You can choose the free plan that comes with 50 requests or go for paid plans, which starts at $49/month for 1000 requests. The paid plans include full results with exports for domain search, several Gmail connections, and priority support.

For availability, it utilizes geo-redundant servers. ZeroBounce leverages anti-greylisting technology that provides accurate results. It can also identify even the gender of a few emails by looking at the first names. You can download the results if you want from the system.

Make better decisions as to whom you must send an email to with the help of its accurate and real-time results. To get started, just enter the email address you want to check, hit the button next to it, and wait.

It also helps facilitate cooperation between laboratories and other bodies by generating wider acceptance of results between countries. Test reports and certificates can be accepted from one country to another without the need for further testing, which, in turn, improves international trade.

ISO/IEC 17025 is useful for any organization that performs testing, sampling or calibration and wants reliable results. This includes all types of laboratories, whether they be owned and operated by government, industry or, in fact, any other organization. The standard is also useful to universities, research centres, governments, regulators, inspection bodies, product certification organizations and other conformity assessment bodies with the need to do testing, sampling or calibration. 350c69d7ab
