FIOS speed test (Wylie,TX)

Recommended Posts

Hi all

First time here, and first time I've used this site for speed testing. Kudos to the staff here.

Just got FIOS installed 2/9/05. After ditching the D-Link router, I'm using my Linksys RV082 VPN router to connect to the service.

Check out these speeds!  :D

Well Fios speeds are still holding true. So far I've only experienced one serious outage out here in Wylie, and according to FIOS support, it was area-wide and nothing to do with my local installation...it lasted about 4-6 hours in the off hours. What's bad is that when your fiber goes down, your phone service goes down too. So it's always good to have a cellphone for backup...

Some observations I've made (which may already have been documented elsewhere):

1) Port 80 is blocked...so use 8080 or some other port if you want to host a web server.

2) Port 21 is not blocked...so you can host ftp servers

3) VPN ports are not blocked, (443, 500, 1723, etc) so you can host vpn servers or use vpn passthrough

4) Don't install the verizon software bundle if you can at all help it...(esp that annoying ip insight client)

5) No need to use their DLink router ... I'm using the Linksys RV082 to connect to my FIOS service (BTW, does anybody know what the default logon is for the dlink?)

6) IP refreshes about every 2-3 weeks from what I've observed...so if you host a server, go with a ddns service and/or an ip updater client

Now if somebody would make a list of all the games that work on VPN...

Here are my speeds for FIOS as of today. I'm registered for 15MB down/ 5MB up (business acct), so I'm still not getting what I'm paying for. The tech said to monitor and report if continues to be at 50-70% of plan speeds.

I never hit the 'back' button ... clicked the RETEST and Download Test links ... no explanation for the tests other than what they show ...

Just ran it again .. clicked the 'Download Test' at top of the page  ... what gives, anyone?  If test is not accurate at all, then what is the point? :confused1:

I ran another speed test from the following site:

http://miranda.ctd.anl.gov:7123/

Results below are most likely correct .. as opposed to this site's speed test:

=========================================================

TCP/Web100 Network Diagnostic Tool v5.3.4e

click START to begin

Another client is currently being served, your test will begin within 180 seconds

Another client is currently being served, your test will begin within 135 seconds

Another client is currently being served, your test will begin within 90 seconds

Another client is currently being served, your test will begin within 45 seconds

Wyliecoyote .. I'd call Vzn-Fios tech support @ ... they can probably help optimize as they did for me

5/5 vs 15/2 ... I don't think I'd pay 169.95 for 5/5 vs 15/2 @59.95 .. upload speed is a not as critical as download for me

JohnA

Using SmarTest .. I get errors ... indicating that speed results exceed the max of 40mps .. but when it doesn't return errors, it consistently shows speed results in the 30+mps range ... this does not tell me it is obviously a 15/2 connection .. only that the SmarTest is not accurate at all ...

So when I use flat file testing with largest file of 20972 ... it returns more reasonable results ... 14+ mps, consistently

Wyliecoyote, I'd agree that you need to call tech support.  You're not that far from the testmy.net server (Dallas).  I'm in Flower Mound, TX and these are my speeds.

You might want to try downloading cablenut and using the following settings.  This helped me in the begining.
