speed tests?


[link to this post]
 
Hi all,

I'm thinking of perhaps migrating to Zen, and wondered if anyone here had a recent (non WiFi) speed test from ThinkBroadband they could share? Out of interest.

I'm currently getting good speeds with BT, but would like unlimited usage, a static IP, and no traffic management, so Zen or Sky's new (unproven) Fibre Pro service, are the only real options.

e.g: http://www.thinkbroadband.com/speedtest/results.html...

I have an unlocked HG612 modem, and my own Asus router. I sync at between 52 Mbps and 49 Mbps depending on weather, upload only 9.5 which is disappointing, and could be a fault in the BTw/OR network.

Does Zen support 1500 byte MTU?

thanks.

BT (poor) -> Zen (excellent) -> O2 (started well, went downhill -> IDNet (No complaints - but 100GB cap) -> Zen (unlimited)

Thanks, wonder why the green line is so much slower than the yellow?

Just saw the post in TTTS, and it looks like the difference I get between Mac and Windows. smile
