Re: Faster Fibre speed tests.


[re: Chippy_Tea_] [link to this post]
 
Again my thread has been moved to the back of beyond as the community star has decided its not a problem for the OCE's to deal with and its your speed test that is wrong.


Over the past couple of weeks you have posted multiple speed test results from multiple different speed testers.Those results have been broadly consistant (but not identical). There have already been a couple of threads discussing results variability.

This Thinkbroadband results seems to be out of sync with the other tests. It would appear more appropriate to ask Thinkbroadband why their results are so different to everyone elses.

As this does not need OCE intervention, and is more a continuation of previous discussion threads I will move the post to the "Join The Discussion" section of the forums.

Have you tried using another browser for comparison?

I have just tried using Edge and got 31Mbps on https and 19 on http.

As to why our results are different, that's because we want our results to have diagnostic value, rather than just telling providers numbers they are happy with i.e. top quartile or burst type results and nothing to indicate any speed variation.

Your latest round of testing where http is different to https points to something, and as with the Wi-Fi testing you did before with access to all your hardware its hard to be sure. Another trick you can do is take your kit to a friends, and compare Ethernet and Wi-Fi results between your PC and theirs on the same connection.

Are you saying you have ZERO firewall or anti-virus installed? I hope not.

I didn't know what you meant by monitoring my http, yes i have both.

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

Thanks, i don't really have the option to move my PC to another place and since starting my thread over there my speeds using their own speed test on Ethernet have miraculously jumped from 24Mbps to 37Mbps i wonder if it is a coincidence.

TT speed test early morning - https://eigde79682.i.lithium.com/t5/image/serverpage...

TT speed test later this morning - https://eigde79682.i.lithium.com/t5/image/serverpage...

So basically what you are saying is if this test was run on the other test site it would show 34Mbps as my download speed because that is the highest burst on the download which doesn't actually tell the true speed. - https://www.thinkbroadband.com/speedtest/15064314431...

In the 30 to 34 Mbps region is what a good few places I've looked at certainly would

Monitoring my HTTP, i.e. doing stuff like looking for malware type traffic patterns, this takes some time and can have varying effects depending on the PC, software and how busy OS is.

With HTTPS it is possible that if the end point is considered trusted less intrusive checking is done, since you have an encrypted tunnel.

Another option is HTTP may be being intercepted by an ISP proxy cache and this is causing issues, but for HTTPS the proxy cache is bypassed. The test is configured to have all the parameters set to so browsers bypass caching, but with transparent proxy caches this is not always the case.
