Single thread download speed is on the low side!

Something very strange going on...

My Broadband Speed Test

the x6 & upload are roughly as expected as another tester shows

Looks too stable to be congestion and looks more like something is throttling or capping speed

But 6 x 12 only = 72.

Connection - AAISP Home::1 80/20. 200GB. Sync 01/10/18 - 72382/13812Kbps @ 600m. BQMs - IPv4 & IPv6

8 more likely

Likely whatever is limiting sees the multiple requests and lets you have a bit more

But you provide 6 streams. 201.8 / 6 = 33.6Mbps per stream. Which is still unacceptable.

Have you looked at how many streams the tester actually uses?

Should be 8 in most cases now.

As for acceptable - have never said the result the user was seeing was acceptable.

So the text is now out of date on the results as it says HTTP x6?

It would appear so. That was what I was working from frown.

In fact that makes it worse, as 201.8 /8 = 25.2Mbps per stream.

The throughput the ISP is providing on a single thread on that 200Mbps (at least) connection.
