After a bit of speed testing from people


[link to this post]
 
http://labs.thinkbroadband.com/speedtest/ssltest.html

A new version of the speed test and would like to get a wider sample of devices, speeds and computers running it and thus be able to compare the normal versus the SSL based testing.

Yeap can see that two tests http://tbb.st/1441643778314923555 and http://tbb.st/1441643991551874355 both on http.

Not sure why the second did not run, when the first finished did you see the second test swap into the position of the first one? Its not a logic fault per se as its working for others with the same ISP and same browser.

It may be the mixed mode is being blocked by some settings you have, i.e. running a HTTPS embed on a HTTP page.

As the speed tests are NOT linked to your logged in profile they will always appear as someone else's result for now.

Did a couple of tests with no issues.

I can't get more than 3Meg from the connection as a faster sync rate causes instability.

Just ran sensibly for me from Chrome (Windows 10 laptop with wired connection) and gave the results I would expect.
The results page did say I was viewing someone else's results, but they looked exactly like mine.

Similar results on Firefox.

Burst may behave the way it does due to hardware buffering and AV software will handle SSL differently I expect, i.e. since its encrypted it cannot do much

The burst on upload can be, due to buffering mechanisms, it could be artificially smoothed out but prefer to see raw rather than fiddled figures usually.

It is about increasing options and making sure the speed test can operate in lots of environments.

Also looking to see if SSL has any unusual quirks that may be worth exploiting particularly in traffic management scenarios

Given it was a 260 Mbps result from what looks like the new 300/20 product then would need a Hyperoptic Gigabit user to wander along.

Usually have to hunt the Gigabit people down individually, or just pop on over to a 10 Gbps connection.

ok I ran 2 tests as you will see when looking.

The first I did in the middle of me doing work on the router and QoS was off during the time I did the test buffer bloat scores A down C up.
On the second test now after I configured QoS again, buffer bloat A both ways.

All 4 tests work fine for me.

Still no separate single/multi threaded tests?

Someone will come along on a Gb connection and blitz that I am sure. Still it's a [censored] KC do 100/100 and BT don't - that said it's a smaller and better network for KC and their own of course.

Even their 250mbps Unlimited product (which is probably symmetrical) at £69,99 a month looks good!

The 100 one has a 1.5TB cap - which wouldn't be good for me lol

1.5Tb would be plenty for me... would be interesting to see if the 250/250 held up well though... actually saying that all the other packages look like they need some hell of a network to cope...

and considering that Hyperoptic is considerably smaller coverage than KC and they have some congestion like issues (last I heard) and I believe that BT isn't available in these parts so thats a busy network...

However I may be wrong, it could be quiet a network...

I get a failure on Vista running IE9. using Wifi I will run wired in a few minutes

Works OK on the old test but fails with
"Welcome to the new version of the thinkbroadband speed test.

Ąż We encountered a problem

Error Code: 4134

Check you have an Internet connection and try again

Now tried wired but still fails but with error 4132 now, Old test still works.

Now tested using firefox and works correctly. So looks like IE9 failure. Similar results to Flash test on IE9

You are right the reason KC exists is because there is no BT presence in Hull, Never has been, Probably never will be.

This error is thrown when we have seen too few samples in the test.

If the normal non-SSL tester is fine and the SSL is not, suggests poor SSL performance on a device and it may be that IE9 is less than perfect, plus IE9 will generally be present on older slower machines.

Generally speaking both tests run without any problems for me and the results agree pretty much with the flash test but I have noticed that my latency is very often reported as roughly twice the value of that on the flash test i.e. ~15ms on the flash test as compared to ~31ms.

Packet size is not identical so you can see some variation in the latency measure between the testers.

There will be another test for latency for people to play with in the future.

Overall results the same as the Flash tester. Nice to see I can run this in my normal browser though. Shows 'D' for bufferbloat. Oh and the graphs of the test look a lot more 'rough' - does the Flash tester do some kind of smoothing?

Flash does have a small amount of smoothing. Prefer to run new ine with none as I get better feedback of issues rather than masking them or interpolating data points as some testers do

Rather a strange result this morning:

Bufferbloat is now 'F' in the downstream.

Your av suite (Kaspersky) is playing around and its HTTP inspection may be causing buffering artefacts
