I have Cox communications, i should be getting 100Mbs, modem/router hardware is all current.

I am not running any streaming devices ( i am going to, this is why i am verifying my connection)

these tests are from a hardwired PC:

Running the google speed test through M Lab i get various inconsistent results ...last four test, 30 seconds apart yielded:
5.76.5.76

18.1 /5.66

47.6/5.69

8.53/5.66

 

Ookla results are consistent:
Ping

 
19 ms
60.34 Mbps
5.55 Mbps
 
is there a program i can run that will monitor and graft my speed over time that i can show to a tech to prove these speeds?

If you register on the Ookla web-site it will create a very neat graphic log of your performance which can be copied. You could, for example, do a series of tests across the span of a day which would show how your performance changes with local loading. Or a series say once a week which would show variation over time.
