iPhone 12 issue?

I usually love this app. I have used it on iPhones for years and years. And it worked fine on my wife's iPhone 8 and on my iPhone 11 ProMax. A few days ago we upgraded to my iPhone 12 Pro Max and she loves her new iPhone 12 Mini. But both show a disappointing incompatibility with the Ookla Speedtest app. The Ookla app on my iMac (2019) works great. It shows my Mbps speed to be at or even over the 300 Mbps line I pay for. But when I run the app on both my new iPhone 12s I get the exact same results of very low speeds shown. Sometime measures under 100, usually around 150. I take care to match the chosen server to the one the Mac is using and it is an incredible difference. Had I only bought the one iPhone I would likely have put on my mask and gone to the Apple Store. But two iPhones doing the exact same thing? So I dwonloaded a competing speedtest app which I do not usually like as much as Ookla. That app works fine on both the 12 Max and the 12 Mini. Measurements all pretty much match the Mac's Ookla results at 300 . I think this shows the problem is in something Ookla is not allowing for as to some sort of change in the iPhone 12. I hope that the Ookla team will touch base with Apple and fix this. Note I have given this app 4 stars as I really love it and have used it for years and years. BUT IF YOU HAVE AN IPHONE 12 THERE MAY WELL BE A SERIOUS PROBLEM. Let's hope it to be temporary so I can dump the speedtest I don't like.

Great App for holding ISPs accountable

I love using this app to check my internet speed. Having recently switched from AT&T to Comcast, I wanted to make sure I was getting my money's worth. At first, I didn't see an improvement and in some cases worst performance even though I was paying $50 more per month. Then I figured out that it was how my VPN to my workplace was throttling things and have since come up with a workaround. I would suggest it would be helpful to have the tool show where the "bottlenecks" might be in performance so the layperson can learn more quickly why their actual performance isn't as expected. The other improvement I would suggest would be to making it easier to find an "optimal" server. Some times that can be delayed with no explanation. With those two improvements, I would give this app a "5-star" rating

Just notice that you had a Mac Desktop app!!

I have been a longtime Ookla Speedtest user for many moons…. I retired from IBM in 2008 with 30 years of working with computers/networks Speedtest has been my go to network test for as long as I can remember. I always found that depending on your web browser you could get different results and its far better to have a local run application to cut out as much of noise from applications to get a truer picture of what your results are.

This app is well put together and the options it gives you are just what is needed with no extra fluff. The response is quick and the reporting is reliable, free from all the overhead of the browser and any cache etc that can and would be in the way.

The options of saving your test along with running it in the menu bar and haveing the capability of uploading it to about 23 different places (depending on your Mac’s configuration) listed under your System Preferences/Extensions/Share Menu

You still have the option of selecting where you want to test to. If is set automaticly to the closest point from you ISP.

The graphical interface showing in a line graph of both incoming and outgoing testing shows how smooth or dirty you results can be. With showing a more flatline giving you the cleaner results of your ISP.
