@MrSaffron - Speedtest bug ?


[link to this post]
 
Andrew have you changed anything to the speedtest in the tools section?

I normally get 8ms when I do your tests, but the last two times its showing up as <1ms or 0ms.
Is that a bug or am I in the next room tongue

As always the share results links the tests give at the end, save time in digging around to look at what people are talking about.

BTW Nothing changed on the latency measurement side.

What I believe are your recent ones and the flash ones are showing 0 in the badge, and I've not changed anything, since flash version has zero development these days.

Okay the answer is, that as you have FTTH with low latency, one method used to test latency is returning a <1ms result, and thus the presentation in the badges e.g. http://www.thinkbroadband.com/speedtest/results.html... may benefit from a tweak to say <1ms rather than 0ms

Ok, thanks.

I will try the one in your sig tomorrow when the congestion has gone.

Its just that my other FTTP tests showed about 8ms.

Ok, just did two tests.
This is a result from the speed test from your sig:
http://www.thinkbroadband.com/speedtest/results.html...

This is a result from your other one (Flash):
http://www.thinkbroadband.com/speedtest/results.html...

Both the speeds are about the same, latency is lower by 15ms on the Flash version.

Its a shame that both of them only show up to 100 Mbps, I know that would be fine for most people, not knowing the speed until its completed is like, oh the suspense LOL.

How about now - better figures when its running, needle locked against a hard stop but numbers should spin up to 1000 Mbps and beyond if you have the connection to do it.

If you enjoy seeing the needle bump around too there is the log scale version at https://labs.thinkbroadband.com/local/index.php?tab=3

Yeah, that link looked good and funny enough did the test quicker than the other two, might be due to doing just the one download test.

Yes one of the options is to just run the multiple thread download test rather than both download tests, shaving 8 seconds off the test time
