In reply to a post by 5km:
Today I've seen a Vfast speed test showing 32.20Mbps down and 14.83Mps up ... a real competitor to FTTC if FTTC was even available!


Hi 5km,

Not quite sure how accurate this test was but I had a 45Mb/s down and 31Mb/s up just now from Speedtest on the London server.

My personal best so far! laugh Unfortunately the Thinkbroadband speedtest seems to top out at around 25Mb/s and never registers the true upload speed?!?

Does it matter, it is fast ... v' fast in fact!

There is another thinkbroadband speed tester not sure how to get to it directly but still accessible from http://fwd.five.tv/adv/broadbandspeedtest

Does that give better upload readings?

Cheers. Tried that and that gives about 38Mb/s down and 34Mb/s up, so I'd say it's quite accurate compared to speedtest.net depending on what server you test from. smile

Hi all,

Good to hear about the speeds with VFAST! , now all we need is government to take wireless technology serious for next gen and stop throwing all our tax money at Fibre, especially in rural areas where the costs are silly. One day TB might put a general fixed wireless entry in the main forum next to mobile/fibre/adsl too..

you never know... !

I don't know what to believe sometimes using Speedtest.net.

In general I think it gives a rough indication of what I get. I have a bandwidth application running on my desktop that gives me a constant real-time throughput reading which I use to verify any Speedtest.net result.

I did however get an odd result using the Canterbury server on Speedtest.net on the 12/11/2010 of 21.43mb down and 1.89mb up (this is on the existing/older network and equipment under the 10mb down 2mb up package).

**Edit**
Just ran a few tests now and got the following:
Date & Time -- Down -- Up -- ms -- Sever
24.11.2010 8:57 PM -- 2.06 -- 1.99 -- 26 -- Canterbury
24.11.2010 8:58 PM -- 2.61 -- 1.14 -- 11 -- Sittingbourne
24.11.2010 8:58 PM -- 2.91 -- 1.11 -- 57 -- Maidstone
24.11.2010 9:06 PM -- 3.52 -- 2.4 -- 27 -- Maidenhead

A nice speed test.

Do you mind me asking if your own connection is running under the same conditions as your end users (contention settings etc.)?

Hi,

My own connection has a higher speed than most others on this network as the speeds we offer on our website are 16 Mbps/24 Mbps. We have QoS queues at our server that allocate that speed on a per customer basis. Upload speeds are set at 1, 4 and 6 Mbps respectively.

As the boss i get to set the speed as high as i want for me smile

Some customers on the newest "next gen" network segments (one of which i am connected too) have the choice of the higher service speeds, most are happy with 16 or 24 Mbps though.

Contention is managed using the QoS (quality of service) queues, the higher tariffs have a higher priority. My priority is the same as our "Business plus" tariff, which is lower than the premium Extreme package.

We could turn off the QoS altogether and offer an "up to as fast as it goes" in the traditional unbalanced "those closest to the server get more than those further away" kind of way .. But we won't tongue . QoS has been an integral part of this network since 2005 and the lack of customer complaints speak volumes.

another important metric which is rarely eschewed is of course ping..
