East Sussex County Council speed test site


[link to this post]
 
My council (East Sussex) has a website encouraging people to register their interest for "superfast broadband". Their speed test page always quotes my speed at around 7 meg, whereas speedtest.net quotes my speed at around 15.5 meg (the correct figure).

Can someone check it and see if they can get a figure over 7 meg please?

Hi,

Just over the border in West Sussex on a Be LLU product. Router synced at just over 9Mbps down / 1.1Mbps up.

The East Sussex speedtest gave me 6.53Mbps down / 0.9Mbps up.

The speedtest.net gave me 8.2Mbps down / 0.98Mbps up.

Regards,

Stuart

Current ISP: Xilo (via Be LLU)
Previous ISP: Zen (for 9 years).

Thanks. My tests on that site have risen to 9 meg but are still well short of the 15.5 meg I am really getting.

I'm on fibre in Bexhill.

My SamKnows monitor shows a consistent 52/53 down and 12/13 up.

The E Sussex test gives 21 down and 8 up.

5.15 Down & 8.10 Up followed by 3.95/8.55, 6.29/8.85 & 6.67/8.10 - yes, down was always lower than up.

With an 80/20 service giving me 60/18 those results are way out. Maybe Mr S should be selling the TBB service to them.

I think we can safely say the East Sussex CC speed test page is not fit for purpose. However, maybe it should be given that they are using it as an indicator to encourage people to register for higher speeds.

Oliver.

As it runs on ios it is probably a html5/javascript mashup.
Chances are running on a server with limited capacity or needs some work to scale code to faster speeds.

Wonder what it cost East Sussex?
