Stockton-on-Tees Speed Test Results

We analysed the results of people in Stockton-on-Tees test providers multiple times, with each test starting no more than 30 minutes after the previous speed test. On average, people in Stockton-on-Tees ran 4 speed tests per session. Looking at download speeds, if the Stockton-on-Tees resident's final test is 10% faster than their starting download speed, we count that as a succesful and faster speed test result.
