"are there any residential customer of Zen / BT / and/or another company, who consistently has a snappy, connection with a steady 900 Mbps ?"
Today the browsing does seem to be a little better (which I accept is an a subjective criterion and it is not an objective criterion) but for me that is usually the most vital part of my internet use and I only tend to hit the speed test sites when the browsing is [censored] and when web pages take ages to load and since FTTP the browsing has mostly been slower than it was with FTTC.
I know that speed tests with vary between test sites, (especially with a connection that is varying wildly at times), and that is why I have been mainly trying to use the main speed test that Zen Technical Support told me about which is: https://zen-internet.speedtestcustom.com/
FWIW; I do know how to carry out fair and objective systematic speed tests and that is why I have been using the speed test specified by Zen Technical Support and the speed findings reported in my previous posts in this thread were from that site.
Regarding large files: I have downloaded a few and these file downloads also show the same wildly varying results and I am only willing to use the Thinkbroadband files for this sort of file download test since i would not download from an unknown site.
Here is a link to a recent Thinkbroadband speed test that shows 527 Mbps DOWN and 31 Mbps UP with a latency of 35;
I know what speeds I am getting and I have posted about them but it would be helpful to know what other residential 900 Mbps users are getting for comparison purposes and to help us all see what is available and from where.
I presently still have faith that Zen will eventually come good with regard to a snappy connection and high steady speeds but I need to know that there are Zen residential customers who do get a steady 900 Mbps.
