Interesting as my single thread speeds have been consistently in the 30-45 mbps since at least the beginning of September. It could have been earlier as I don't have any saved TBB results for July & August. No variety with time of day though.

First raised a couple of months ago with no joy, but getting some leverage now as they are looking to reroute our traffic through the backhaul.

I wonder whether I was just seen as a spurious one-off when I raised the problem initially in September.

You haven't recently changed your hardware have you? The reason I ask is that the last two laptops I owned struggled with single threaded tests (wired and wireless). They spent most of the test ramping up. I was never able to find out why. Then I had to replace the laptop and the new one (an HP Pro Book) goes straight to full speed on both tests.

There might be some aspect of the test that causes it to give poor readings on some hardware. I vaguely recall it started after one of the Windows 10 updates for what that's worth.

All testing has been performed on an IMac. Router and modem hardware has changes a bit, but results with my Netgear Orbi / ZyXel VMG1312-B10A are equivalent to tests run on a ZyXel VMG8924-B10A. All cables swapped out with no obvious difference. Testing from the test socket with a dangly filter yields similar results. I've tried with KIS for Mac installed and uninstalled and no discernible difference.

My work laptop only manages a maximum of 45mbps on both the single and multithread tests.
