Cheers. Yep, a direct connection to ONT should be your first port of call if you're not see the full line speeds when using your own (or BT's) router.


Spot on. smile

Already on Infinity 4 prior to upgrade order two days ago.

Woke up this morning to find speed tests in excess of Infinity 4 but not 910/110.

After a little snooping around, I think that the online speedtesters aren't up to the job - consistently showing about 500/100, including the one here test

Did a test with fast.com and got the numbers I was hoping for.

Confirmed by doing a few Linux distro iso downloads with Internet Download Manager and was getting in excess of 910.

Regards,

Rob

It has been shown that the TBB end can cope with it - the question is whether all of the pipes between you and the TBB servers are up to it - the limitation could be in any number of places along the path which could be outside of the control of your ISP or TBB.

Best speedtest sites I've found for accuracy & reliability is the AAISP one >>here<< and the Xilo server on speedtest.net.

The slow single download does point to something being the limit somewhere.

If we increased thread count probably would get higher speeds, but that would reduce sensitivity of the test to show when providers are starting to hit congestion issues.

Seriously?
That gives impossible results.
It gives higher upload and download than my package allows.

I'm not the only 1 to get that experience either.

Thats weird, never seen the AAISP tester go above 310/48 for my 330/50 line. I suppose it just goes to show never rely on just one tester.

Edit: just noticed AAISPs tester is now LibreSpeed based, it wasn't in the past. I wonder if that has broken things?

Shame the AAISP one doesn't allow you to select between IPv4 and IPv6 (AFAICS).

My Mikrotik hEX PoE doesn't support fastpath for IPv6, so gives ~250M on this test. But forcing IPv4 in the hosts file it's >300M.

As I'm not an AAISP customer I can't really complain though smile

Finally got around to doing that, I then had 830 down consistently, and still only 60 up.

Doesn't matter which site I use to do the test, speedtest, fast etc, they all come up with roughly similar numbers.

I get around 920mbps down maximum, and an absolute high of 97Mbps upload, that's with direct connect to the ONT. My FTTP install was pretty ghetto and has a few bends in it so I'm not sure if this can cause this, unfortunately can't get 940/120 other people get.
