Please help me prove Virgin are to blame....


[link to this post]
 
Hi all,

I have an NBA.TV streaming subscription and I am experiencing terrible performance.

As you can imagine, NBA are blaming my ISP and my ISP blame NBA.

Can you please take 30 seconds from your day to help me prove on of them wrong?

Please run the NeuLion (NBA) speedtest below and post your results (and your ISP name). Please also post your normal Speedtest.net results so I can put your results in context.

http://speed.neulion.com:1855/nlspeedtest/

FYI: I have 60Mb Virgin cable and receive 1.14Mbps down and 1.33Mbps up from NeuLion (Speedtest.net result I get 29.86 down/3.34 up).

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR HELPING.

James.

There is something very odd about that speed test, especially if you then go to one of the offered alternatives at the bottom of the result. I think it is an invalid tester.

What does a normal speedtest.net give you, if you just enter www.speedtest.net in the URL?

Ummm!

I see little point in running here a speedtester that is based in the US.

Which ISP are you with?

Hi RobertoS,

Why do you think it's odd? It's based in Boston, MA if that's what you mean? The links at the bottom take you to other US based access points.

Here are my "normal" results (poor considering my '60Mb' connection!)

Cowes is hardly renowned as the data centre in the uk.

What speeds on other UK tests?
