Major difference in single threaded speedtests


[link to this post]
 
So on TBBs single thread i get around 150-180mbps but on speedtest.net i get 480mbps

what would cause such a huge difference?

Speedtest.net defaults to multi-threading. Simples.

On most devices you can change it to single thread, just under or to the side of the large GO button. See what that gives.

Edit: Oops, I hadnít noticed your actual tbb graphic. Whatís the problem, other than the tbb multithread is faster than the other. Suggesting the other may have a server capacity problem.

Your links to Speedtest.net in your sig just take us to do a test, not to your results.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk. Domains, site and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Three 4G, tbb tests normally 35-45Mpbs down, 65Mbps off-peak, 9-24 up.

The OP shows a speedtest.net single thread at 494/498 Mbps and Multi at 512/539 the little arrows confirm it red/green single, blue/purple multi

When I clicked they took me to results.

As MHC says, the Speedtest.net data looks good.

The question is really if Vodafone have a similar problem as Virgin Media had, with congestion on their link to Thinkbroadband. The Thinkbroadband test is WAY down in speed.

147 and 268 versus 400+ on speedtest.net

Noticed the ookla test is to a vodafone server so probably stayed on net, where as leaving network there are issues

Is our network contending, nothing visible and network monitoring would alert well ahead of nodes hitting the actual limit

Probably down to your location. I'm also in North Scotland (Inverness) and have never seen single thread speeds on TBB tester match multi on three different FTTP 330 lines (FluidOne, Trunk Networks & BT Business). Yet my single & multi-thread speeds are identical on almost every speedtest.net server. So you're not alone smile (and nothing to be concerned about IMHO)

Ummm. I donít know why I didnít get to those results before. Probably finger trouble this end frown.

I wonder what happens if he uses a non-Vodafone server elsewhere in the country.

That would explain it!

Yes, I've seen over 1000 Mbps, from a corporate connection to your server, so suspected any issues wouldn't be on your network. As you detailed extensively for the VM issues a year or so ago smile

Yes. As just explained to MHC, I seem to have had finger trouble.

But the tbb graphic shows the multi-threading giving what I would expect from a 500Mbps sync speed. With user-end buffering causing the above 500 peak reading.

Can you post single thread results from the Xilo Speedtest.net server? If ok, then nothing wrong with your connection as thatís a pretty reliable ookla server.
