Thinkbroadband HTML5 speedtest


[link to this post]
 
I just ran the new speedtest http://labs.thinkbroadband.com/ispa on my Panasonic Viera TV

This is wired to a 1Gb network. Seems a bit slow.

And the internet connection was?
It is possible that the web browser is the bottle neck more than the connection itself.

Well not a massive surprise, the TV is probably designed to only cope with a maximum of 10 Mbps of IPTV and then have hardware codecs to handle the decoding.

The adage of buy the best glass you can for a TV and hang the best boxes as separates off that will usually beat the all-in-one approx performance wise, but might involve a lot more messy cables.

But still nice to know it works

Yes, I think you're right about the bottleneck being the TV as I got the same speedtest over 5GHz wifi.
