I am the same but my download is 17.7 which is fine for me. I use streaming for sports I cant get on tv. Some strange links but they all work fine when I connect my laptop to my tv.

james's connection is fibre not cable modem (Which is co-ax to the exchange) - it's probably copper from his house to the street cabinet then fibre to the exchange - as I understand it there's no contention ratio set for UK fibre as the take up for it isn't particularly high yet. There is a contention ratio for ADSL which is 50 connections per line. james should still be getting a reasonably good connection.

I am still running over the old telephone connection. There fibre available but mine is dead cheap and I dont need anymore. Being a client for 20 odd years why change?

Yes, it's all relative, though compared to how fast it was in the beginning (about 18 months ago) I've had problems with pages loading slowly or not loading at all (time-out). This is on more than one device.


Are these devices connected to the router physically or over wifi?


My main gripe is that I should be expecting (as I pay for it!) download speeds of 60+ mbps and upload speeds of 20+ mbps, and according to several independent test sites I'm not getting anywhere near that.


You certainly won't be getting an actual download speed 60+ mbps in the UK over fibre - if you get 24Mbps in the UK you're doing very well.

I have no idea what the problem is. I'm still on hold (almost an hour now) so don't know what BT will have to say.



Well, best of luck with it.

Okay, well after waiting an hour and 15 minutes (ffs!) I finally got through to a helpful chap from Wales (I'm wondering if there's a problem with their site in India?). He "refreshed the line" whatever that means and there has been a miraculous turnaround in results. For instance, if I do the test now from the link in the OP these are the results:

ping: 30 ms (33+)... download speed: 69.94 (15 ish)... upload speed: 18.93 (7-ish)

... where the bracketed data is my previous results. So, whatever the fugg he did, it made a big difference. He also informed me that I should be turning the plug to the hub on-and-off every 10 days and it will help a lot to maintain these figures. Not exactly sure why and I wasn't sure if I should feel like a dummy for not having done that, but from now on I will.

I am, honest guv! Tell me how to do a snapshot of the results on the test and I'll show you.

Enjoying the free speed upgrade from BT:

The ping figure was surprising, so I ran it again twice, then with a new server, and got 15ms all three times, which suggests that maybe the odd luckily-rapid ping can give a rather distorted result.
I don't do sarcasm smileys, but someone as bright as you has probably figured that out already.

Morocco's internet is an absolute joke. I've finally got the whopping (up to) 12MB/s I pay $45 a month for. Here's what happened...

Day 1: Wake up to find my internet not working. Find out that my previous contract has finished and they just didn't bother to ask if I wanted to renew. I assumed I'd signed up for a deal that just rolled over and they sent you a bill.
Day 2: Sit around all day for a bloke to show up to fix it. No-one comes.
Day 3: Landlady comes round with a technician. I pay for 3 months up front and I'm told that it will come back on tomorrow.
Day 4: Doesn't come back on. Told that the technician will come at 2pm the next day.
Day 5: Technician doesn't show. All my contacts have switched their phones off. They all suddenly get back to me at 7pm to tell me that the company is now closed until after the holiday.
Day 6-8: go on holiday to a place with internet.
Day 9: A man comes round to fix my internet. Fixes it, but it's at 2MB/s rather than the 12MB/s I paid for. He then claims he needs to install a new cable to get 12MB/s, despite it being just over a week since I was getting that on all the same equipment. He can't do this until Monday morning.
Day 10-11: Two days of slow internet.
Day 12: Shows up on Monday afternoon, doesn't even apologise for being 4 hours late, and I finally have the internet I pay for.

Am I entitled to a refund for the 11 days that I didn't have the internet I paid for? Am I fuck. I hate living in shit holes sometimes.

Installed in the new house. Snappy!

Fibre optic all the way to the modem. 30$ per month for the first year. Awesome deal.

Not particularly fast, though adequate for my requirements. But what's this? Faster than 71% of AU? What the fuck did the $56 billion National Broadband Network project achieve? I'm still on ADSL. I have to switch over to NBN by September because the old network will be unplugged by then. Looking at what is on offer, I'll be paying the same rate for the same speed then as now.

They cheaped out, tried copper which they were told would not work and now ur fucked nationally.

Lucky we got on the fiber which happened to go right by us.
Copper especially in wet areas just will not cut it.

Stupid fucks

The national broadband network’s reliance on copper has led to a higher fault rate and slower internet speeds but helped deliver the network faster and cheaper, its outgoing chief executive has said.

In a position paper released on Friday, Bill Morrow is frank about the challenges of fibre-to-the-node (FTTN) technology and use of the copper network, a signature policy of Malcolm Turnbull in his time as communications minister.

The fibre to the node design is not even cheaper than the fibre to the premises project Labor was going to finance. As I mentioned above, the project has blown out to $56 billion. The original cost estimate given by the conservative government that axed Labor's $37.4 billion plan was $29.5 billion.

Maximum theoretical speed of the FTTN system is 100Mb/s, and that would cost me rather more than I am paying now.

Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.
