Re: Upload Speeds Doubled, Downloads didn't ? FTTC


[re: RobertoS] [link to this post]
 
Following this thread as I am rather disappointed with the result of upgrading from 40/10 to 80/20 with Enta.

My speed test results can be seen here, both through speedtest and the BT tester.

Enta technical support did give me a test login, which gave the best speeds I have ever achieved according to Speedtest.net, But with the BT speedtester it did no9t really make much difference.

It looks to me as though my download speed is somehow locked at 40Mbps.

Would be interested in others views and possible solutions. Enta has passed it to their support team, however say it may take three weeks to solve it.

Have you read this thread? It seems it got resolved for two users there. Which reseller are you with?

Thank you for your response.

I am following that one as well.

I will re-read it to see if I can find out a definite diagnosis.

I am with Vivaciti, but have not involved them yet as technical support for FTTC products go straight though to Enta.

Thank you. It was reading your original post which provoked me to test further and contact Enta.

So far they have accepted my ticket and said they have passed it to their "In House Team" for monitoring and warned that it may take three weeks to resolve. Hence me wondering if they was anything I could do in terms of information to speed it up.

After the bank holiday I might suggest to Vivaciti that they give Martin a quick ring, if they have not come across similar problems as I am sure with the right info it could be sorted in minutes. Meanwhile I will keep on using the BT speedtester and keeping the results.

The BT Speedtester has it's own (server-side) issues, I would not trust it.

In reply to a post by RobertoS:
I see two possibilities. First your MSIL is reaching capacity due to unexpected demand caused by high 80/20 takeup. Or second, the same effect as it somehow gets throttled to 40Mbps as it approaches 100% of contracted. Then lower if necessary, as demand is rising rapidly these days. Queuing effects will also be present, so even at a 40Mbps MSIL cap you won't get anywhere near that. Motorway slowdown syndrome.


Well it's either that (an intentional throttle/speed cap - seems to be variable, Entanet style - as capacity is reached) or the bad-boy throttle & FUP is still in place (and BT 'forgot' to e-mail me last month saying I'd used too much), but I don't recall using anything like the old 300GB FUP trigger level, that's a heck of a lot of pirated movies, iPlayer and radio streaming (sorry..."Linux distro downloads").

In any case; we're back to being sub-ADSL2+ speeds again (certainly on download, anyway).
TBB speedtests are becoming a pain (really long time to get a result, mainly because at the very start of the test I get a short high speed burst, over 64Mbps, prompting the TBB test to try a massive file. Then the data speed drops to well below 20Mbps for the remainder of the test - meaning it takes an age to complete).
Still; waiting long enough does produce a result. For the first time (in I don't know how long) the TBB download test agrees with a Speedtest.net result (upload is still way down, but that's another on-going issue which seems completely unrelated to BT's throttling).
TBBmeter FTP upload test reports 15944.5kbps (so 16Mbps, as near as makes no difference), so the low upload result is purely an issue with the TBB speedtest.

Sorry, remind me - did you hack the modem yet?

Yes.
Or to anyone from BT (who may be watching), erm...no.

Did you disable vlan 301?
