  5. Sanity check ,please !!

    no, but now running firefox on windows,(also running on linux m/c), instead of opera, & both win7 and 'buntu have same upload speeds,but now D/L speeds have dropped on both machines..........WTF.... going to have a break and start again tommorow, will post any progress, Many thanks, mudmanc4 regards, nodsa
  6. Sanity check ,please !!

    That would not shock me. But why is this happening. Software firewall ? Antivirus? Anything secondary you might have running on the machine?
  7. Sanity check ,please !!

    @mudmanc4 am now running alternate tests with an older laptop runing ubuntu live cd..........id in results is garage, it appears that winblows is restricting upload speeds by around 5mbps ??
  8. Sanity check ,please !!

    480m from exchange, 30m from cabinet, testing on cat5e Gb ethernet, direct to router from a fresh win7 install :- same equipment that achieved 32 to 35 regularly on previous upto 36 package , and achieved regular 70-74 on prior upto 76mbps package, all with same isp...Talktalk Have also tested with a tplinkTD-W9980 router,and had exactly same results.

    In that case, I would surmise you as in the VDSL modem) is roughly 1km away from the cabinet, which would account for the ~17% loss So all in all, your doing good. If in fact the distance is correct, reverse calculation and assumption on average results compared to standard deviation. What about wiring inside your residence, age / quality, splitters, filters ect. All of which will account for signal strength. As for the modem ( ~2-3 years old) the appliance has likely has several updates since placement, this happens transparently via ISP. We'd have to know the firmware, version compared to new subscribers device / firmware revision and even reasoning, to know if that device plays any part in deviation.
  10. Sanity check ,please !!

    Hi mudmanc4, thanks for responding so quickly. The package is faster fibre, with an added speed boost, this is supposed to give up to 80 MBPS, download, and up to 20 MBPS, upload. vdsl,talktalk provided (2-3yrs ago)Huwawei 635 router.... The screenshot above, appears in my talk talk account as I navigate towards their speed checker. I never expected anything over 75, to be honest, but to barely achieved 70 is somewhat hard to swallow. Regards, nodsa
  11. Sanity check ,please !!

    If you click "Results" in the header of the page, the link will take you to https://testmy.net/quickstats/nodsa There you can delete your own records. The stats graph in your first post, I placed there for your and mine reference, it is all tests taken from your ID, logged in or not. Which I believe is drawn from the unique net device MAC The test appliance, or script talktalk uses will live on their own network, so testing will define your basic connectivity and throughput to the ISP Can I ask what 'speeds' or package you are paying for? If you are consistently or on average achieving 65/13 , I would say that is decent, not optimal. This would coincide with what the ISP is selling you
  12. Sanity check ,please !!

    @mudmanc4 ,this is a screenshot from my talktalk account, take no notice of the stats (where did they come from....auto produced?) which aren't representative(I was experimenting with settings at that point ....BTW how do I clean out this misleading set of results? So am i being reasonable questioning talktalk with pretty consistent figures in the mid 60''s? ....max line speed is supposedly 80/20 ... I'm getting 65ish and 13 according to testmy.net & 67-70 and 18.9 according to Taltalk's speed checker.

    @jjgk , Nice connection! What do your real world results look like from/to various locations?

    @nodsa , Is the image a screenshot from talktalk or elsewhere. Exactly, to add, To the ISP , after in which is completely out of ISP hands. In other words ISP's as a general rule internationally, take their (in my opinion) collaborative responsibility to maintain functional and fluent means to access to grant data via end user (which consists of all of us) , and toss it to the wind. Why call yourself an Internet Service Provider , if in fact your unable to support such claims in a reasonable manner, not that of which you define or clause in a customer agreement to pay. Lets look at it this way. The system has been built backwards. From the very start, we should have built major infrastructure interconnecting major cities, then spider outward. Hind site is great I know, but were still doing the same thing. Adding nodes to the 'internet' without the support of connectivity.
  15. Hi everybody, for the sake of my sanity, could you comment on my interpretation of the above. I take it to mean, that my normal download speed should be somewhere in the range of 72 to 78, and that anything below that, it is questionable. I fully realise that Internet speeds are highly variable, according to numerous conditions (number of users, file sizes, time of day, etc etc). Secondly, I see the minimum guaranteed speed as an absolute figure, which will be maintained by my ISP, no matter what, unless there is a complete outage. Is this a reasonable view, or should I be chained and confined to a padded cell, any comments. Much appreciated, Thanks in advance, nodsa https://testmy.net/quickstats/nodsa

  17. So you want to stream up all the data?

    I've since setup squid, not that this will help with streaming, but every little bit will, caching 500Gigs should do something over long term. Each user gets 750k . I've yet to work out whether squid will do throttling if :80 / :443 are not explicitly blocked on the network, or if traffic shaper will continue to do it. Here's a quick screen of streaming youtube @ 480p, (where 'thecave' is a local domain) also notice the same net as yours? I know what they are, but I don't know what other than SSL through google this will be accomplishing so...........

  20. So you want to stream up all the data?

    Ah, was wondering. I think there's just one ISP in Ireland that throttles to 1Mbps. The rest either cut the connection (e.g. LTE and wireless ISPs) or charge for excessive usage. I checked the Windows Resource Monitor while playing a video forced in 4K mode: I see that YouTube now streams over two simultaneous connections, as those two connections were going steady until I stopped the video. The following is a trace route to this IP: According to the TCPIPUTILS website, the last 4 ISPs shown belong to Google. is a non Internet routable IP, so is within the ISP. This indeed means that either Google has servers within the ISP or has peering with Google that is given high traffic priority.
  21. Suddenlink speeds

    Where are you located?
  22. Virgin media

    Over the years reading posts, we could find more statements such as yours than not. Tech comes out, everything is awesome, tech leaves, soon thereafter, connection stinks on ice. Aside that, tech was likely testing on the ISP level network, never touching the 'internet' , or anything outside of their control. Also, check out the mirrors testmy.net uses, find one closer to you and run some testing
  23. So you want to stream up all the data?

    Ouch, yea that penalty is rough. Have you run a tcpdump, Is the media streaming from within the ISP network, much as netflix does? The limits I stated are set by myself on one vlan, I've since loosened them up a touch, was rather useless as it was.
  24. Virgin media

    Can anyone tell me why when an engineer came to change my router and all tests done on the router was producing 140-150 Mbps the next day it fell to 25mbps now I am lucky if I get 80mbps I am supposed to have 200mbps The only thing I have done is change the ssid, it's at its worst in the morning https://testmy.net/quickstats/Jennie Rimell
  25. Suddenlink speeds

    https://testmy.net/db/dADvRb9rn This is a 150 meg service.
  26. Ran a couple speedtests here resulting in speeds around 150Mbps on 1000Mbps fiber line from AT&T FTTP. Other sites reporting around 940 up and down now that i am using my PC. Can you suggest a server that I may use to test my speed at testmy.net. Was hoping to set up an auto test for 24 hours to check consistency. Regards, John https://testmy.net/quickstats/jjgk
  27. So you want to stream up all the data?

    Is that 500kbps limit you set or ISP enforced? My ISP (LTE based) surprisingly prioritises most streaming traffic such as YouTube (and Netflix I think) during peak time. My monthly limit is 750GB, however, that cap is strictly enforced. Go over it and it is a eye popping €50 per GB, which I've heard people getting hit by. To give an idea of traffic prioritisation, the following is a YouTube "Stats for Nerds" screen playing 4K, which should be impossible at the speed TestMy reports on the right:
  28. So you want to stream up all the data?

    I've since added an additional 1000ms to each 100 packets coming through the pipe And dropped 1 out of every 100 packets.
