Is Enta/UKSFN Still Fast? How can I find out?


[link to this post]
 
I've been with Enta for five years or so. It's been getting slower and slower over the years with a lot of latency now on many websites I visit. I don't know whether this is an issue with Entanet, or whether there is a bottleneck somewhere else (like local loop congestion). I certainly can get response from these websites much quicker when I am elsewhere, so it is not the websites that are getting slower.

How do I figure-out where my traffic is getting slowed down? There is no point in changing from Entanet unless I know that someone else will be quicker.

Is there a piece of software that I can use that will test this at all? I'm stuck in the sticks so only have ADSL 2. The speed testers still say that I have a speed about 7Mb/sec which has been the same for all the time I've been with Enta.

Thank you everyone!

For elimination purposes try this and see what it says/suggests about your exchange.

Have you raised this as a support issue with UKFSN?
What are the results of a speedtest?

Thanks - it says there are no capacity issues with the exchange and haven't been in the most recent tests that I could see online. Other information is below. I live about 1/2 mile from the exchange.

VP capacity at this exchange is currently showing as Green.

I have just run a speed test (it's changed since I first ran it) and the results are here: http://www.thinkbroadband.com/speedtest/button/13624...

Appreciate your help here!

I've just run a speed test and it appears slower than it used to, but the apparent speed to me seems slower (perhaps that's the latency). http://www.thinkbroadband.com/speedtest/button/13624...

Thanks for your help in this!

Run a BT based speed test as well, this will give a little more information, also if you cannot get hold of anyone from UKFSN then speak with Enta support direct as they may be able to help.

I would be almost certain you aren't on ADSL2, (I think you mean ADSL2+ anyway), as your exchange is not WBC-enabled.

Connection - Plusnet UnLim Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 541/15.2Mbps @ 600m. - BQM
