Anyone else getting odd results from the White Box?
I've just changed ISP from BT to Plusnet. Whilst with BT the white box was reporting incredible speeds, 72mbs with the odd 74mbs.
Now I'm on Plusnet, the White box is giving me 62mbs, yet on checking TBB I am still getting 66mbs, as I was with BT.
I get two artifacts from Plusnet testing...
a) Because Plusnet implement their own speed control system, my download speeds are slightly
lower than theoretically possible.
On a line syncing at 80Mbps, this results in download tests running around 2Mbps slower.
During tests with Plusnet, when they effectively remove that limit, I get higher download speeds - even without a resync.
b) My download tests from SamKnows show (in the raw
data) that almost every speed tests runs at one of two speeds, differing roughly by 4Mbps.
There has been no resyncs, and no PPP drops over the course of this graph.
To see that, click "Advanced", and on chart data, choose "raw test data"
Samknows explained this, initially, as Plusnet having routing issues to the 2 London servers. However, this has been going on for a long time now.
