My #1 feature request is the ability to configure the Speed Test. I have had awful time with my ISP lately each evening from about 6-10pm. It is probably cable congestion. My ISP is an Australian Telco called Telstra, I pay for a Plan called "Super-fast Cable 100 Mb/s" and at night time I am often only getting 1%. The ability to manually configure the Speed Test to automatically perform a test at more frequent intervals would be most useful and would produce a far more impressive graph. I have sent them this graph (attached to a complaint). But it looks a little amateurish because of the frequency of data points. Their IA (Immediate Action) - the green line - was to replace my Gateway Cable modem. That didn't work. So I expect that I will have to do this for a while until they get to the bottom of the problem. I think this would be a very popular feature.
I find that I get a "Lot" of speed test errors. Possibly half the time it fails. There must be a bug somewhere. Typically it will do the download speed test, then the upload speed test, both arrows will go green, then about 5 to 10 seconds later it will say "Ooops". Screen print follows. I get the same problem on the desktop.
