Speed Thread (Before and after transfer speed comparisons)

As a benchmark, this is my current speed on a G5 iMac using Firefox. Already quite high I know and from what I know my current line has very little noise so I can't wait for next week.
Thanks guys

Re: Speed Thread (Before and after transfer speed comparisons)

Good idea - here're my stats (also from a Mac as it happens):

That's on an IP profile of 3000. So I'm not holding out much hope of seeing a speed increase...

Re: Speed Thread (Before and after transfer speed comparisons)

Yep good point
I forgot to add that important detail. According to BT my IP profile sits at 7000. So for the time being all looks promising. Time will tell eh? When I get home tonight I'll publish my Attenuation and Noise levels from my router. It is those that I used to calculate my potential ADSL2+ sped and in theory the max is possible.
WIll keep you posted.

Re: Speed Thread (Before and after transfer speed comparisons)

Just wondering if there is any mileage in doing an early adopter speed test results page?
My speed currently is
Date Download Speed Upload Speed
Today 13:34 3647 kbps (456kB/s) 371 kbps (46.4kB/s)
conducted on http://www.mybroadbandspeed.co.uk/
My line is due for change over Dec 4th so watch this space
FYI Exchange is roughly 1.8 miles away, phone line to house underground.
Would the moderators please like to make this into some sort of sense for all or just delete it if you thhink it's rubbish. Grin

Re: Speed Thread (Before and after transfer speed comparisons)

Here's a marginal difference since this morning (er yesterday morning, is that the time?)
Local information:
Apple imac 2.66GHz intel core 2 duo 2GB 800MHz DDR2 SDRAM, Modem/Router Netgear DG834n (Latest Firmware installed) Next WiFi but wired by ethernet to Mac, WiFi is for laptop and iPhones.

A quiet Saturday morning gives me this:-

Still fairly constant but not due to change until Thursday.

Basing my theory on the fact that I'm around 4 Meg now I'm guessing that I'll get around 12 meg after 21CN turn on or is that over simplifying things? 12 would be nice but upload speed increases are a nice thought, hosting things like family photo albums on my own server would be more viable with a hike in upload speeds and would save my valuable web space.
Anyway, here's todays score.

Still pre 21CN and counting.

Re: Speed Thread (Before and after transfer speed comparisons)

Hi guys
I started checking my speed already as the last time PlusNet said 5 days it actually took three!
I admit it is before 8am on a Saturday where most normal people will be in bed and the network will be quiet but I amgetting some interesting spikes. Please see below:



And just for a lough I also got this result which i assume it was an error on the line somewhere. These speeds are dreamed off in the UK!

Will keep you posted.
Tip: Restart your router a few times over the weekend.

The usergroup forums are also moderated by the PUG members ( some of whom are CS moderators too)
If that hasnt been documented clearly then I'm sure the mods will sort that.

Re: Speed Thread (Before and after transfer speed comparisons)

what isnt obvious is the section header of Usergroup discussion, despite the fact that this is a main stream forum
i.e. why should Iron Port be under usergroup it is now a main stream matter
