I have Cox preferred package which is $60/month in my area.

Package supposedly provides 50Mbps download and 5Mbps upload

Ookla is routinely over 50Mbps with highs of as much as 65 routinely

My Cox internet download speed went down to no more than 4Mbps for a month, took them that long to correct it. accusing me in as many ways as possible for causing the speed. They did fix it and rebate me nearly a month charges,though. but, it has never been as fast as it had been before and still glitches with drop offs and total channel shut downs in my docsis3.0 cisco year old forget the model number but it is one cox allows which isnt many. it is ok, too.no issues as it was tested critically , by them a dozen times.it is 8 up and 4down.

I have never tried to post my tests here, so, hope this works

39 SGD/mth for 200mbps, with an option to use 100mbps cable internet. my hardware can't really support more than 100mbps though.

actual speed is similar to Mobileone's 100mbps subscription, but lower upload speeds for some reason. and for once in my lifetime, speedtest.net gave a me a similar result!

btw, could you make this new forum code work without javascript/webkit?

I'm posting this right now without javascript. It works but you lose some of the functionality.

Why do you need it to work without javascript?

for some reason, the reply box doesn't load right in opera presto. it only shows the "Drag files here to attach, or choose files..." area but the rest of it doesn't load, so i can't type anything. i suspect it's a javascript issue, or maybe presto renders CSS very differently compared to what this board's code was written for. works fine in firefox.

okay. i finally got about talking to starhub's tech support. apparently i can only get up to ~98 mbps IF i directly connect to the ONT/modem AND test my speed with a custom Ookla speedtest on their own website(broadbandspeedtest.starhub.com/speedtestv3.1/). ack. i tried speedtest.net again and got an even slower speed(2.4mbps) than before, but with a slightly higher upload speed of 16mbps. changing the testing server to viewquest got me 94mbps.

a mercury speed test on www.starhub.com got me ~7.5 mbps. not much of difference compared to connecting through the router.

he also mentioned i should try changing my "channel" when connecting to the router, and gave me a different number to call for router issues. i assume he meant the wifi frequency "channels", which shouldn't be a bloody problem since i connect through the ethernet port on my laptop. i never expect wifi speeds to be optimal. there's probably over 12 wifi connections near my home(not including any hidden one's i'm not snooping up) , crowding up the airwaves...

so i spend a whole night tinkering with settings and saw no significant increase,at least not through the ethernet cable. called the other tech support number in the morning, and spent a rather challenging 18 minutes talking to a woman with a stereotypical indian-accent on a bad phoneline. it seems that downgrading my router's firmware solved the problem for whatever reason. reached 99mbps(download/upload) on starhub's own ookla test through the ethernet connection WITHOUT bypassing the shitty router.

then i tested it on a USA server on testmy.net, and... the results vary. 11-20mbps for download,5-11 for upload.

however wifi speeds still can't reach the maximum of 75mbps for my hardware(~12mbps on the ookla test). according to other subscribers of starhub , the DIR-850L router provided can't obtain optimal speeds with the 802.11n standard used on my notebook & tablet. the "best" solution is to spend  200+ SGD on an asus router,and ask a service tech to recognise the MAC address of the new router. meh.

The image above may vary over time on this post, but as of this posting:

 

34.8 Mbps down

7.8 Mpbs up

 

Ookla speetest.net shows my speed as:

52 Mbps down

11 Mbps up

 

I pay for 50 Mbps down, 10 Mbps up with Telus, in V1E 2H3 (in the southern interior, BC, Canada): ~$80/mo internet (optical fiber), ~$160/month total with copperwire phone and Optik TV (1 PVR, 2 satellite boxes, 3 TVs, optical fiber). Telus just recently offered a 150Mbps service upgrade for this area.
