      Re: Speed Tester Results

      Yes I have tried different speed testers. The slow rate is evident not just on browsing but also on downloading, using newsgroups etc etc.

      Re: Speed Tester Results

      It looks like the skyuser speedtester is either very accurate and other sites have added a meg or 2 or the sky tester is a meg or 2 slower than actaul speed.

      My results are

      Skyuser test
      Download 9664Kbps
      Upload 634Kbps

      Namesco BBmax test

      Download 11733kbps
      Upload 655kbps

      My sync is 13660 down and 764 up.

      Speedtest.net also gives 11700 down and 654 up

      Re: Speed Tester Results

      What I find really puzzling is why I get consistent results between the Skyuser test and other speedtests but others find a big difference

      For example, I've just run a test with Skyuser and got:

      Down: 10168kbps Up: 658kbps


      With Namesco:

      Down: 10041kbps Up:622kbps

      Re: Speed Tester Results

      Have to admit it is 100% accurate on mine, consistently.

      The good news is we have been capturing the speeds for the last 10 days or so and so soon will have a graph of some description, showing you the speeds attained via every ISP's customer who has used the tester, especially the all important one, Sky Broadband.

      I have to discuss with the Coder tomorrow about the readings and see if we can put this strange occurrence to bed once and for all.
