Speed tests from ADSLGUIDE

I have gone to http://www.adslguide.org.uk/tools/speedtest.asp
for the speed tests well it is in the United Kingdom so it must be ok.
Here they are:

Upstream 240 Kbps (30.0 KB/sec) 276 Kbps (inc. overheads)

Direction Actual Speed True Speed
Downstream 479 Kbps (59.9 KB/sec) 550 Kbps (inc. overheads)

RE: Speed tests from ADSLGUIDE

Ok well heres my speed test from ADSlguide. Im not going to do 5 as i think that is a waste of time and it will only confirm the facts anyway.

Downstream 70 Kbps (8.8 KB/sec) 80 Kbps (inc. overheads)
Upstream 73 Kbps (9.1 KB/sec) 83 Kbps (inc. overheads)

At time (18:4Cool

Althought i'd like to point out that i received brilliant speeds this morning as i have at all times during the day. But it all changes at 5pm for some reason. Something is happening at around that time...

9pm, my speed test


Downstream 446 Kbps (55.8 KB/sec)
512 Kbps (inc. overheads)

Upstream 73 Kbps (9.1 KB/sec)
83 Kbps (inc. overheads)

That looks fairly ok to me.

RE: Speed tests from ADSLGUIDE

Just did a speed test myself (9:15PM)

60Kbps down, 118Kbps up

Seems very slow to me. This has been going on since the installation of the new 155Mb pipe that was supposed to cure these very problems. (My connection was fine until then!)

I read in the following thread:

http://portal.plus.net/central.html?action=new_forums&forum_action=display_topic&topic_id=4157&displ...

That Plusnet are going to make an announcement about these problems soon. I guess we wait and see.....

RE: Speed tests from ADSLGUIDE

Strange, I have never had this problem. Have just done speed test :-

Results from your most recent broadband speed test recorded on 23 October 2002 at 21:34:42.

Your Connection

Direction Actual Speed True Speed
Downstream 469 Kbps (58.6 KB/sec) 539 Kbps (inc. overheads)
Upstream 130 Kbps (16.3 KB/sec) 149 Kbps (inc. overheads)

For your information, I live in the southampton Area..

Downstream 10 Kbps (1.3 KB/sec) 11 Kbps (inc. overheads)
Upstream 48 Kbps (6.0 KB/sec) 55 Kbps (inc. overheads)

At 9.45pm - Pathetic Pathetic Pathetic Pathetic Pathetic Pathetic Pathetic Pathetic Pathetic !!!

RE: Speed tests from ADSLGUIDE

heres mines at 10.25 from ADSLguide.

Downstream 66 Kbps (8.3 KB/sec) 75 Kbps (inc. overheads)
Upstream 44 Kbps (5.5 KB/sec) 50 Kbps (inc. overheads)

from plusnets own tester just after the 1 above.

Your current bandwidth reading is:

135.70kbps

which means you can download at 16.96 KB/sec. from our servers.

RE: Speed tests from ADSLGUIDE

OK here's mine....10:30pm....

Downstream 52 Kbps (6.5 KB/sec) 59 Kbps (inc. overheads)
Upstream 17 Kbps (2.1 KB/sec) 19 Kbps (inc. overheads)

Cor! Flippin eck! Now I know using these speedtests aren't exactly the best way of checking. Now, here's the same test a few minutes later...

Downstream 229 Kbps (28.6 KB/sec) 263 Kbps (inc. overheads)
Upstream 123 Kbps (15.4 KB/sec) 141 Kbps (inc. overheads)

...and again...

Downstream 227 Kbps (28.4 KB/sec) 261 Kbps (inc. overheads)
Upstream 27 Kbps (3.4 KB/sec) 31 Kbps (inc. overheads)

So you can see it varies quite a lot.

Here's a few PlusNet Big Brother tests

download at 26.31 KB/sec. from our servers
download at 37.48 KB/sec. from our servers
download at 17.82 KB/sec. from our servers

...varies again...but an ftp to mirror.ac.uk can download at pretty much a steady 50KB/s

in the Birmingham area.

Contention or not?

Downstream 471 Kbps (58.9 KB/sec) 541 Kbps (inc. overheads)
Upstream 38 Kbps (4.8 KB/sec) 43 Kbps (inc. overheads)


Upload speed is a joke, it's used to always be >230Kbps before it went wrong, why can't they keep us more informed about this issue when they know they have a problemHuhHuh

RE: Speed tests from ADSLGUIDE

The real test of speed is trying to download a shockwave story for my two year old and instead of loading in a few seconds, it takes ten minutes and disconnects three times. Two year olds aren't known for their patience or understanding. Neither are ripped-off customers.

RE: Speed tests from ADSLGUIDE

PlusNet is getting more annoying by the day.
if i was able to get to ADSL guide.co.uk i'd submit as i normally do.
Oh i lie.. i can get there, just it takes 12 mins to load their website!

But it appears PlusNet's DNS split at around 12.20am this morning, and i can't get anything outside.

I'm changing DNS servers to BT again..
pain in the *A*

Back in a few mins!

RE: Speed tests from ADSLGUIDE

Well i'm back!
read my topic above this one!
had some problems.. PlusNet is rubbish tonight.

OK i couldn't access adslguide.co.uk all i get is their blue background screen.

So tested it on an american site:

results:

2002-10-23 21:32:09 EST: 455 / 232
Your download speed : 455427 bps, or 455 kbps.
A 55.5 KB/sec transfer rate.
Your upload speed : 232693 bps, or 232 kbps.

RE: Speed tests from ADSLGUIDE

I want to add, i have submitted tests after tests on this forum. over a long time.

I reckon other than comparing the speeds with other PlusNet users, we are wasting our time.

Support don't come here to read or answer posts anymore.. they used to, but not now.

I think it's best to raise it internally
but in saying that, thats a waste of time too!.

We can't win.
