FTTC Survey (new)


[link to this post]
 
After the other survey started to become troublesome (mixing those using FTTC and those who aren't), I've had a go at programming my own on a dedicated web page.

Simple form asks which FTTC ISP you use, your usual downstream and usual upstream speeds. Just select your details from the drop downs. You submit it and it gets logged in a database. You only need to click submit once and the page will tell you if everything entered correctly (or not, if i've broken something).

The results from this database are then read out on the results page. The advantage is it's my own domain so I can adjust it easily or add extra functionality if I'm capable. Please only vote if you're actually using FTTC. If your ISP is missing then reply and i'll add it to the list so you can vote for it. Please only vote if you use FTTC and only vote once.

You can access the survey here

Just filled the details in. My typical speeds are actually slower than they can be, due to using wireless 'g' rather than 'n'. With 'n' USB adapter fitted to my netbook, I can hit 34Mbps, but I don't need to at this moment in time. smile

My PHP and MySQL programming efforts seem to be holding up so far. Even something as basic as this takes a bit of work. Doesn't help that it's been a few years since I did anything similar.

Added a new page to the site that shows each entry as it was entered. Gives a little bit more information as you can see how each down/up response relates to each ISP rather than the results page which just gives totals. You can order the table columns per your specification.

Might be an idea to link a speedtest in to the results for some accuracy smile

I meant, link the survey in to a speedtest automagically wink

That looks like a deliberate and brilliant typo smile.

The trouble is, who would then rack up the speed test usage? Not all connections are unlimited.

You'd only need to run it once, surely? and if the results are anything to go by, the majority of testers won't need to worry because of their "unlimited" FTTC connection wink
