Higher speeds look ok but...


[link to this post]
 
Not keen on signing up again for another 18months, quite like the position I am in where if I wished I could jump ship and also my predicted speeds are 55.9Mb download
18.0Mb upload. Not really much of an upgrade from 40/10 to be honest.

1 day into the upgrade for speeds, mine has actually dropped from 32Mbps to 29Mbps for download and from 3.8Mbps to 3.9Mbps upload (averaged over several speed tests).

What I do see on something similar to the tbb speed meter (I'm using DU Meter) is that rather than a level speed during the tests, it now has minor peaks and troughs. Curious.

Totally underwhelmed!

I bet there's a lot of speedtest sites hurting at the moment.

Ummmm tongue.

Definitely not much. A mere 39.75% downstream and 80% upstream increase.

I see what you mean. It would need the fuller stats, with all the attenuations and bit loadings, for the ones who are into analysing those to see if you have a problem.
