      That seems better as i got a jump from 9664 to 11248

      The upload was about the same as my last run.

      seems more accurate now.

      Re: SkyUser - Speed Tester Results

      The uploads have been ok, it was the download speeds that were way out but normally only if on a higher than 8mb connection.

      The new speed tester, uses a different network for the downloads now, where as the uploads are on the same server as before.

      Made a huge difference here (S. Wales)
      The new tester shows:

      DOWN 6840

      UP 324

      So the upload hasn't changed - as you say should be the case - whereas the route from us in S Wales has gone up by about 1.5mbs in speed.

      Excellent!

      1744 Down
      210 Up

      This is higher than my average of previous checks elsewhere. Average is 1620 Down using other checkers.

      Re: SkyUser - Speed Tester Results

      • Download = 6872Kbps
      • Upload = 625Kbps


      The Download speed is about the same as other speed test that I have run same with the upload speed.

      I have done a few tests and never gone above 7.5mb so I think it is reporting incorrectly which will skew the figures.

      Re: SkyUser - Speed Tester Results

      Can you try an alternative speed test and let us know the results from that? We have measured successfully 30mb download connections no problems.
