    Can’t wait for release of 1.9732 so I can try this…not ready to go early access yet. Just wondering can WAN tests be run through VPN Client? All of those things would be good to know for VPN connections too :-)

    measurementlabs.net utilizes a single TCP connection for measuring speed/latency.  This might not be the most optimal in cases where someone has multiple ISPs or a LAG connected to their ISP.   

    It is possible that the speed test does not reflect the full capabilities of an ISP when the speed is beyond 1Gbps and multiple uplinks are utilized.    

    Are there plans to leverage multiple tcp connections to leverage all available uplinks if more than 1 exists?  

    Same question for ping loss tests - this is great to test the ISP connection, but if a single link is bad within the LAG this could be missed.

    As adam has mentioned MLabs have limitation with measuring a connection that touches 1Gbps and they are using Single TCP connection. Further more there is problem when Dual WAN is in use in Load sharing settings as each individual WAN may be of different speed and based on which WAN the testing was using it will give a different result each time. I am not aware what might be problem with using Ookla for testing maybe API? but if MLabs are the way to go then i suggest Multi stream support to be taken into account. I am having Gbps speeds but MLabs never gets it right. Same thing needs to applied for Ping testing also under dual WAN configuration.
