Poor Plusnet single thread download speeds - again


[link to this post]
 
Last night: http://www.thinkbroadband.com/speedtest/results.html...

I tried three different gateways, all with similar results.

This morning: http://www.thinkbroadband.com/speedtest/results.html...

I normally use speedtest to keep an eye on things, which I think is multi thread. We had a power cut about 6 days ago, in the middle of the night and I have noticed a speed increase of about 6Mbs up to 60/61 Mbs for my line since.

To check this out I did a TB test and that agreed but it did show a low figure of 21.1/21.8Mbs.

I am actually very happy with my connection, but does this show that perhaps it is not as good as I have always thought.

I'm sure I read somewhere that the HH5 & PN1 both show a lower single thread reading.

Other than the usual issues that congestion cause no firm evidence to suggest that there is an issue introduced by the hardware used.

Single thread capped at 50mbit is an artifact I see with the linux flash plugin on seamonkey (roughly firefox) browser.

I have a HH5 & PN1, both give a low single thread readings on the Flash speed tester. But, if I use https://labs.thinkbroadband.com/speedtest// I don't get a low single thread reading.
