I did a speed test and wanted to know an opinion of the results.

It all depends on how close it is to what you pay for.  Also the speed test is only valid if you are connected to the Internet with a cord.  (Wireless transmission adds another possible bottleneck to the traffic.)  Time of day can also influence the results.  If your ISP gets really busy things will slow down.  This is what I get with Spectrum Cable (100Mbps advertised) but at the end of a powerline extender.

Sometimes your adblocker or your anti-virus will slow your test down.  This is the same test with both turned off:

Not much difference today but I have seen both cause problems.

 

Our special rate will expire soon and we will have to switch back to AT&T for a year or two.  Not looking forward to that because their speed is about what you are showing.
