Do you find that when it gets used more in peak times it slows down a lot?
friend of mine went to a LAN event at one of the major universities here in aus...
Christ! would love to get those speeds! i'm still on ADSL 8mbps max
that speedtest was with 4-500 people on the connection, most of them downloading :/
:O thats just unfair
this here is at work, with 6 ppl currently here and a lot of servers online on a 60/60mbit fiber connection:
Home connection, not great, but could be worse.
Mine on the gnex. Wifi. 27 ft from router. Pay for 22/1.5 tho.
LTE on my phone at work
60mbps = 7.5MB/s ~= 7616kB/s
Your torrents are downloading at the same speed as your speedtest.
If you were getting 80mbps your download speed would be ~10240kB/s
Just did a speedtest, it might be luck of the draw but I'm supposed to get 50 down and 8 or 10 up last time I checked.
I thought that it might have been a bug or something so I tried it again to be safe...
Edit: I stand corrected. Comcast upgrade 50Mbit boost to 105Mbit and Extreme 105 is now Extreme 150 with 150Mbit down. All free for those who were already paying for it.
Recently got an upgrade from 150mbit to 200mbit which is always nice i suppose as it was a free upgrade.
My ISP is increasing speeds on all tiers. I went from 30/3 to this after I rebooted my modem last night. Great upload speeds for a signal channel 16 QAM upstream
brb I must check UQ again
new fibre broadband! paying for 100 DL, must be peak times?!
Good to see last-mile copper keeping up with fiber just fine.
I would expect lower latency on fiber though, so maybe you're right and it's just a busy time of day.
Speedtest gives me 119 tops where torrents reflect that as well. I'm also running the torrent on my gateway and viewing it with Transmission Remote, so it's probably an accurate representation of what my connection is capable of since wi-fi won't be a bottleneck. If anything this is reason for me to start pulling up floor boards in the attic and running some CAT6 to my office.
@ UQ using a taichi31. I'm not sure why speedtest is showing it being so slow. Steam and Origin download at around 8-10MB/s.
EDIT: never mind steam and origin are downloading at only ~5MB/s today. It seems that it is fastest on Tuesdays -.-
You got conduit?
No, that's the hard thing. The house was built in 1901 so the house isn't exactly wiring friendly which is why I've been putting it off. I want it more for local transfers since my wi-fi seems to speedtest the connection just fine. This test was on wi-fi:
work - cabled in
Homes built in the Later 90s early 2000s are built wire friendly just about.
Yeah, my house is about a century too old for that.
In defense, it is possible to run wires without too much hassle. The issue is that I can only use walls on the inside of the house as well as the fact that I don't have a spot marked out in the attic for a patch panel for the modem and gateway and such, so it's a big project if it undertake it.
