Rate your ISP - VFast now listed


[link to this post]
 
I might be late to have noticed this but VFast are now listed under the "My Broadband Connections" section of the ThinkBroadband profile page.

By adding a VFast connection, you can rate them by Reliability, Speed & Customer Service on a monthly basis.

I regularly rate my Sky DSL and will be doing the same for my VFast connection which should help build up VFast's rating on the ISP list page.

vFast Ltd
Downstream ~10 mbps (megabits per second) - ~1250 KBps (kilobytes per second)
Upstream ~2 mbps (megabits per second) - ~250 KBps (kilobytes per second)
Sky MID
Downstream Att. ~62db - SNR ~5.5db - Sync - ~2784 Kbps
Upstream Att. ~31db - SNR ~16db - Sync - ~832 Kbps

Just moved home within Ashford and was lucky enough to be able to move my VFast connection as well. I had not yet been upgraded to the newer hardware at my old home and was generally getting 7-8 mbits download, 4-5 mbits upload which I was mostly happy with anyway. With the house move, I have been upgraded to the new receiver / transmitter and I have had a very real boost in speeds. The 24mbit service does really live up to the claim (I'm assuming I may also have a slightly better line of site at my new home).

Hardly a comprehensive test, but when I was downloading drivers for my graphics card, it averaged 2.6 megabytes a second and I can watch 1080p videos on youtube without any issues.

I'm always a bit skeptical about how much speed tests reflect reality - I expect everyday performance to be worse -, however at least they give an indication.

Good to be able to rate VFast on Thinkbroadband now. They deserve the recognition and the visibility.

After some work at the Dunkirk mast, I upgraded to the VMax package and have been getting the following speed:

**Edit**
ThinkBroadband Flash Speedtest: 22.43mb Down - 9.29mb Up
**Edit**

I run TomatoUSB on my Asus RT-N16 router so I can confirm the bandwidth reading matches the Speedtest results pretty well.
