I don't know why, but most of the online adsl-based speed checkers seem to give wildly varied results with satellite broadband (if they work at all). We're both on a 20Mbps link so shouldn't be getting DL speeds in excess of 20Mbps unless Tooway are feeling generous!
The most accurate speed checker I have found is the Tooway's own service at http://speedprobe.skylogicnet.com
(you may need to install Flash to use it)
These are the figures I got this morning which are much closer to what I'd expect:
Average Download Speed: 16395 kbps (2049.4 KB/sec transfer rate)
Average Upload Speed: 5547 kbps (693.4 KB/sec transfer rate)
Average Latency (Round Trip Time): 898 ms
Jitter: 40 ms
Packet Loss: 0%
Someone just posted this speedchecker on the Forums too which seems to handle satellite ok:
Do you know what your modem's Rx SNR figure is? Mine varies between 12.5dB and 13.5dB depending on cloud cover.
