Was it just me?


[link to this post]
 
I ran a speed test 30 mins or so ago, and got a lousy downstream speed,3Mbps or less, but upstream and pings fine on both speedtest.net and thinkbroadband. Both wireless and wired.

Rebooted and no change. IP Profile is fine, Plusnet Current line speed is fine.

Ran the BT Test and speedtest.net again (wireless) after typing that and got a proper speed.

Anyone else notice anything odd?

during the past month low speed complaints have risen on plusnet, even after the BTw fixes.

Also bizzarely is people reporting upstream congestion which simply shouldnt be happening on xDSL services, I had upstream congestion last week until I gateway hopped and it went back to normal.

was your speedtest ipv6 or ipv4?

I'm glad I wasn't imagining it!

Last week my friend and I were transferring a file. He's on Sky ADSL 15Mb and I was struggling to get a throughput of 5Mb to him...

Thanks

Speedtest.net looked like IPv4, tbb is IPv6.

Normally mine is fine. I don't think it was anything to do with what other people have experienced. Just a blip. As I said, it has gone back to normal.

Linx has had some major problems today, around the time you report...

Could be related and won't have affected all routes.

I've just run a diagnostic check and can't see anything obvious. Give me a shout if you notice any problems with this again RobertoS.

My measured download speeds have more than halved in the last couple of weeks. I used to get full speed or slightly below, consistently, 24/7. Now I do well to get in the 30s. I can't see any reason for it, my IP profile and Plusnet line speed are 69.8Mbps. Upload speed is unaffected at 18-19Mbps. Shall I raise a ticket for this?
