      SBUF consistent speeds

      Hi all,

      Since having SBUF installed I have been slightly obsessed with speedtest.net and checking my down speed, i signed up to it so that it records and saves all my speedtests.

      Since the 17th Feb i have done 79 speed tests over both wifi and wired on 2 different machines.

      Below are the lowest and highest speed tests.

      I am very happy with it so far and have not had any problems, what are you views/speedtests been like for others that are connected.

      How come your latency is so bad

      Re: SBUF consistent speeds

      Since I sorted out my wiring and router port problems my speeds have been pretty consistent however if i only used speedtest.net I would be worried. The results on that site vary hugely. I find that the bbc iplayer diagnostics site is the best and next down the bbmax site.

      Sky Fibre Unlimited 39999/10000
      Sky Fibre Unlimited Pro 49394/18767 Was before I got DLM'd down to 45000 but now downgraded

      Sky Fibre Unlimited 39999/1999
      Sky Broadband Unlimited 10487/1049

      Re: SBUF consistent speeds

      yeah, I'm kinda hoping my latency is sub 20ms when I get it installed. The pings in the OP aren't much lower than what I have now on normal broadband (32ms).

      Re: SBUF consistent speeds

      Speedtest is a fairly synthetic test. I prefer testing against usenet or something, at least then I have a "real world" representation of my speed...

      I like the look of them pings crakatoah

      I wonder if it's just pot luck because some ppl have much higher pings on fibre
