re: I Built a Bot to Try and Get Money Back From My Internet Provider VIEW POST


Hey Andrew, great article and great work on the tool, I'll have to get something similar setup soon! Just a couple of questions:

  1. Does this cause any dips in network speed when the test is running? I.e. do you feel the test running when you are browsing or doing other things on the internet, or is the test pretty quick to finish?
  2. Why did you opt for 30 minute intervals?

Either test doesn’t affect browsing, I've been playing games that rely on low latency and haven’t seen any spikes. On very slow connections (~5Mbps? Perhaps the test would be felt).

I felt that any speed issues that lasted shorter than half an hour would be ‘blips’ and I wouldn’t mind missing them. I haven’t put too much thought into the 30 minute timing interval.

Thanks for your questions! 😊
