65Mbps on a 35Mbps line !


[link to this post]
 
Have just tried some 1GB download files from within TBB meter and was finding they downloaded in just over 2 minutes which gives speeds of around 65 Mbps ...

However, when I call up the results of the last test it says:

You downloaded for 138.8 seconds
The file downloaded at a rate of 3.868 MB/sec (30.941 Mbps)
The file was 1 GigaBytes (512.00 MB) in size


Who stole the extra 512 MB?
This happens on both port 80 and port81 downloads but not port 8080

What sort of connection speed have you got? 100Mbps?

35Mbps ish on a 40 Mbps infinity ... On first seeing the "1GB" in 2 minutes I thought I may have gone to a new profile and the 80Mbps speed cap implemented! But no, it was Mr S and a faulty file!

Precise same code even though different ports, so suggests file or some ISP jiggery

Screen shots of:

Port81 download
Port80 download
Port8080 download

When I take the approximate speed and times, 2, 2, 4 minutes at 32Mbps (approx) the first two are definitely 512 MB and the third 1GB - what can an ISP do to cut the file in half!

Found it and fixed it, was linking to the wrong file in the list sent to the meter.

In two years you are the first person to spot the bug, i.e. two years since file was last edited. tbbmeter should refresh its list after a reboot.

I wonder how many use the files in the additional list? I only went there to see if there was anything bigger than 1GB but as not I just decided to try the three to see if the router handled them all.

And it pushed the heat sink temperature up to 55 degrees C - that is in free air with no case on the modem and rather hotter than I would have hoped.
