Re: Plusnet suffering worst peak time congestion


[re: MrSaffron] [link to this post]
 
I’ve read your article again now and can now see that this wasn’t what you suggested at all!

Because I read the ISP review first,I had it that the whole point of the thinkbroadband article was a comparison between peak and off peak, when in reality it’s 2 independant datasets.

I’ve a Samknows white box and I think they’re the only way you could compare peak and off peak (as each line would be tested at both times)

If you use the ISPreview interpretation which is WRONG

I suggest you READ https://www.thinkbroadband.com/news/8019-peak-and-of...

I am definitely not saying TalkTalk is 14% faster at night.

The purpose of my article is to show the differences that arise from single thread (very sensitive to congestion and other issues) versus multiple thread.

The author of the above post is a thinkbroadband staff member. It may not constitute an official statement on behalf of thinkbroadband.

The article does say:
Nevertheless we have done a bit of new analysis using Thinkbroadband‘s latest Q1 2018 (March) consumer speedtest data for BT, Plusnet, EE, Sky Broadband, TalkTalk and Virgin Media to check.
But that doesn't look like proper attribution to me but that may be acceptable to MrS and I'm sure if it isn't then he will be in touch with them.

I get a slight slowdown (< 10%) early on some weekday evenings but that is all, it's not enough to impact my use at all.

I had to carefully scan the article to see if they had attributed it - it isn't really obvious and I would expect much better when using someone else's data.

If anything I've noticed a slowdown when accessing some larger websites, rather than a general slowdown night or day.
