WHATS HAPPENED??!!

What’s happened, when I first fired up the machine tonight I tried out the new pipe by going straight to the ADSL guide (yes I know it's not accurate!) and got a score of 398 downstream.

30 mins later I noticed it seemed to of slowed down, I went back the ADSL guide and re done the test...... 47 downstream!!!!!!!!

Tell me this is a teething problem...PLEASE!

RE: WHATS HAPPENED??!!

I'm having similar problems. I have tested at adslguide.org.uk approximately ever 15 mins. The results have got steadily worse.
Over 400 Kbps at 21:45 and 47 Kbps at 23:30.
What is going on? I hope the techies havent all gone home.
I have spoken to loads of my mates who are on DSL with other ISP's and none of them report any problems with their up/download speeds.
I think I'm going to give them one more week to sort it out then go elsewhere.
Are we eligable for any sort of compensation?
During the last month I have seen download speeds lower than the 56K modem this DSL line replaced and for only twice the price.
Come on guys. I may as well have just flushed the money down the toilet.

RE: WHATS HAPPENED??!!

And I thought it was just my connection last night. I too was experiencing difficulties maintaining a stable connection. I have two different machines using 2 different modems, 1 USB 1 PCI so I know that the problem lies beyond the confines of my house. I gave up in the end and switched the lot off.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
These results are only a snapshot of this particular moment. They are dependant
on any other Internet use on this computer and any delays
on the Internet. To improve accuracy, run the test several times.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Section 1: General Ping Results
A Ping test is the time taken for a server to reply to a request

Main Server:
28ms - Normal - it's about right!

UK Server 1 (www.demon.net):
32ms - Normal - it's about right!

UK Server 2 (www.bbc.co.uk):
38ms - Normal - it's about right!

UK Server 3 (www.ic24.net):
46ms - Normal - it's about right!

USA East Coast Server (www.yahoo.com):
133ms - Normal - to be expected

USA West Coast Server (www.lycos.com):
158ms - Slightly off, it should be less than 150ms

European Server (www.marcopoly.com):
63ms - Normal - to be expected

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Section 2: Custom Server Ping Results
These results are to four user-definable servers.

Blueyonder Counter-Strike 1:
70ms -

Blueyonder Team-Fortress Leage 1:
77ms -

BarrysWorld Master Server (all games):
81ms -

Barrysworld Quake III Arena:
74ms -

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Section 3: Download Speed Results
Three downloads are tested; one from one of your ISPs servers, one through your Transparent Cache and one through an alterntive cache. This will give you an idea of how capable your connection is. Note: You should take the highest download speed into account.

BT Openworld - 512k service Server Download:
0KB/s (0Kb/s) - **** SERVER ERROR: Unexpected error from Server****

Download through Transparent Cache:
60KB/s (480Kb/s) - Perfect - running at full speed!

Download through alternative Cache (webcache.bt.net):
63KB/s (504Kb/s) - Perfect - running at full speed!

* It appears that the alternative cache is working better than the BT Openworld - 512k service cache. To improve Web Browsing, set the Proxy Server in your Web Browser to webcache.bt.net on port 3128*
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Section 4: Packet Loss
50 Ping Requests are sent to your server. The packet loss is measured by how many of the packets don't bounce back to the client. High packet loss may slow down your connection.

50 packets were sent, 50 bounced back; 0% loss (estimated)
Fantastic - no packets dropped!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Section 5: Transparent Cache Page Fetch Time
This test times how long your Transparent Cache takes to fetch a page from the Internet. Please note that this test is subject to many different parameters and sometimes may not be 100% accurate. This test can be used to show delays when trying to view Internet sites. The timing takes place from the moment the request for the file is sent to the moment the proxy server responds.

Average time taken to retrieve a page: 120ms - Slightly poorer than expected
