The first step to analyzing any internet speed test is creating a repeatable testing environment. In order to minimize the possibility of any variables affecting the reliability of the Speakeasy speed test, we ran it five times on three different devices ― a desktop, a laptop, and a smartphone ― on the same internet connection. The 'atomic-future' scenario is real for upstream bandwidth. A megabit/s of dedicated global transit, the most expensive class of traffic there is, costs less than ten cents per month at scale. That bandwidth is unmetered, i.e. Nobody cares if you use it or lose it. Ten megabit/s, for less than a dollar a month, is good for up to 3.2 TB per month.
