Faster Fibre speed tests.


[link to this post]
 
I have run both tests below using the TBB and isp review speed tests i assume they are the same test (probably wrong) so could i ask why the results are miles apart.

Same technology, but the ISPreview test is over SSL as Mark moved the whole site...

So to verify if that makes a difference use

https://labs.thinkbroadband.com/speedtest
and
http://labs.thinkbroadband.com/speedtest

If SSL is proving faster then that's unusual and suggests with end to end encryption something is NOT looking at your traffic, but over plain http something is maybe looking at it.

Also no need to use an image hosting site tests have a share link built in i.e. click the Results Page blue button at the end and it will launch the result on a page you can share the link for.

Also if you've been having issues with Wi-Fi can I suggest that one of the things with Wi-Fi is that a test even just seconds apart on the same device can vary due to the way that the radio spectrum is a shared unmanaged resource.

I tried the two links and am now getting the speeds below, this is over Ethernet with nothing else running in the house.

Could you explain what this means - If SSL is proving faster then that's unusual and suggests with end to end encryption something is NOT looking at your traffic, but over plain http something is maybe looking at it.

I have run a couple of your test file download and was getting between 3.1 and 3.5MB/s

I don't know if this is any use but there is quite a difference in the results have you any idea what is happening?

http is being throttled

[re: Chippy_Tea_] [link to this post]
 
That would be my conclusion too, what is doing the throttling I don't know but looks like something is, particularly if the good SSL test is reproducible

The SSL test is looking good and the non version of ours is not, and its same code and same files.

It is not a generic TalkTalk issue as can see users getting good http tests e.g. http://tbb.st/1506364326300636355

I have again tested this morning and am getting the same results on the tests i did yesterday, i have also today run the tests on my phone and the results on the speed test are almost identical (unlike last night) and on the http vs https site there is now only two seconds between them so its only on Ethernet this throttling is happening.

Are you running any software that could monitor your http connection - AV, Firewall, etc?

What browser are you using?

I have edited my earlier post to say the speed tests were roughly the same today on Ethernet (not like last night where they were a mile apart)

I am using chrome and i haven't any software monitoring the PC.
