SSE Fibre Broadband 76mb package upload speed


[link to this post]
 
Can anyone confirm the upstream bandwidth of the SSE Scottish Hydro 76mb package?

Partner is currently with Plusnet, and looking to move to fibre - and a better deal!

Thanks in advance

Will be up to 19 Mbps (with actual speed dependent on the length of line from home to cabinet)

Is that some throttling kicking in at the end?

Use the Ginp Formula to determine if your vdsl2 connection is with or without G.INP.
Divide your IP Profile by your Sync Speed and the answer is 0.9669 (with) or 0.9679 (without)

I am regretting the move!

Well, 75/16 sure beats 11/1 we currently have, but they throttle? Despite saying they don't...?

edit: Ah, traffic management. What is their management policy like in the evenings? Any experience, ie, times, traffic type? We watch a lot of streaming (Amazon Prime, YouTube, the odd putlocker)

Throttling now very evident.

It will get much worse than this!

My advice if you are thinking of joining SSE

Think again. It's cheap for a reason.

Be careful with all other speed testing sites. They all show maximum speed both up and down all the time!

It's now 7:30 p.m. and getting worse.

It's now 8:30 p.m. and still getting worse.

There has been enough negative publicity, but many are just interested in a cheap service, where they simply have to pile them high!

Many of whom don't even realise it is a censorable word starting with cr and related to another one often associated with the word bull.
