Broadband Quality.


[link to this post]
 
When in sunny Suffolk I have troublefree Freeola Enta. I now spend most time in my residence north of the border where I suffer EE/Orange.
The problem is, the service is near unusable most times. It seems to be delivering pulsed broadband, with Speedtest net producing a sawtooth wavefform of massive spikes.
My first thought was contention, but I don't think that is the case, as it's the same in the wee hours or early morning.
Upload, which is obtained by fast switching of full speed is OK, with download seemingly being delivered by pulsed ram-jet technology or something equally obscure.
TBB speedtest here, which is a bit wobbly http://www.thinkbroadband.com/speedtest/button/14027...
Quality report here http://mcssjc.visualware.com/myspeed/db/report?id=55231 that shows the drop in both upload and download in the graphs.
When watching any download, it's pulsed. Lots of squirts of data and pauses. I will get no sense from the totally useless customer service and everything is running as well as it can here, but I wonder if anyone can point to the problem.

Bods at EE useless as usual. Will not recognise the above tests. Must do BT Wholesale speedtest. I suppose that is because they have accesss to that. Not that it will be much use. Went crazy when service too poor to stream the footy.
1. Best Effort Test: -provides background information.

Download Speed
50.32 Mbps

0 Mbps 7.15 Mbps
Max Achievable Speed

Download speedachieved during the test was - 50.32 Mbps
For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 2 Mbps-7.15 Mbps.
IP Profile for your line is - 5.84 Mbps

2. Upstream Test: -provides background information.

Upload Speed
0.77 Mbps

0 Mbps 0.83 Mbps
Max Achievable Speed

Upload speed achieved during the test was - 0.77Mbps
Additional Information:
Upstream Rate IP profile on your line is - 0.83 Mbps


We were unable to identify any performance problem with your service at this time.
It is possible that any problem you are currently, or had previously experienced may have been caused by traffic congestion on the Internet or by the server you were accessing responding slowly.
If you continue to encounter a problem with a specific server, please contact the administrator of that server in the first instance.

Are you on FTTC or is this a bug?
In reply to a post by professor973:
Download speed achieved during the test was - 50.32 Mbps
If FTTC, this is what's killing you:
In reply to a post by professor973:
IP Profile for your line is - 5.84 Mbps
If not, then there's no accounting for it. All the other figures are indicative of an 8 Meg connection.

Very mediocre copper. 5.5 - 6 meg, which would not be too bad if it was a steady stream. Mile from 2+ exchange, but they refuse to drop noise margin as usual. Just wondering if anyone has any ideas, as EE are useless. Once again state they have NO technichal team. BT test usually shows more than what is possible. Not to worry, down to Suffolk next weekend for 8 weeks and back to Freeola.
