82.23 Mb/s 5.99 Mb/s done smile

That result is without triple firewalls disabled.... results are usually slightly higher when tested with security disabled....

Could you do me a favour please m8 and do a test to the Paris or Rotterdam sever

been some talk on a different forum/website that the london server has been knackered last couple of weeks

cheers smile


edit :Lol can i ask why you did a BT speed test on this speedwave ? .lol i thought the whole point of this speedwave was to map VIRGINMEDIA 100Mbps connections..now this speedwave is pointless..

Good to see folk joining the wave. It's OK for non-Virgin testers to join. We all get to see various ISPs performing in one place.

Interesting to see VM pings much higher than most others. This probably indicates that although VM is getting consistently high speeds, the network is stretched and is probably not that good for gaming in some cases.

Any other observations?

Testing with speedtest.net is probably better than thinkbroadband. TBB is very inconsistent. I always use speedtest.net London / NAMESCO server. .

lol,i can see where you are coming from,but the whole point of a speedwave is to map the performance of a single connection,or to map the performance of multiple connections all from the same ISP and on the same product (package).yes you can have more than one person adding information to the speedwave.but if they are from a different ISP then the speedwave is pointless,further more if you have people using the same ISP adding information but they are on a different product as the person starting the speedwave this also makes the speedwave pointless..

Perhaps it shows the VM to TBB link is inconsistent, sometimes very full, sometimes not, like the high pings on the wave.

Also the algorithm used by ookla has a tendency to show a good result even when a link is congested
