Tried the namesco one and I got 99383kbps....which is fantastic! I'm impressed. Could the earlier results be the result of traffic management from Virgin?

If you tested just before your post time - Thu 26-Apr-12 22:50:17 perhaps your local torrent freak had shut down his client?

The thing about congestion is that it varies. Sometimes over very short timescales.

I am sure they will come thick and fast. Although I'd like VM to also try to increase the upload in this network upgrade. After all with BT and sky doing 20mbps up now they should be thinking about it..Other ISP's that can are on 20% ratio now.

Upload has never been a strong point of the DOCSIS architecture

I know your right. I can only hope that in the next few years BT do our exchange as we have a cab very near to the house which should I hope get us a good speed. It's not in our garden but it's the other side of the fence! smile

probably peering/routing issues been highlighted by the slow speedtest.net

I am also curious tho if the internal VM speedtest gets any favourable treatment on the UBR.

So far every single test I have done on it has been full speed and I will keep doing more tests from now on it whenever I see slow downloads.

A excellect test. I don't see much in the way of slowdowns these days apart from STM. Mind you if DOCSIS3 can't deliver the 10Mbps I downgraded to then things really are bad.
