CamDAB: What about a device that is hard-wired? That would confirm if the issue is upstream or downstream of the router.

^^^ Will try that... Everything is WiFi due to the room layout. But I do have cat5 cabling so will run that test.

Changing from page to page from this site now takes 3-7 minutes. It seems all upload related.. Used to be instantaneous.... now on to getting that cable...

This is interesting... With Cat5...

Ping 13ms
Down: 17.5Mbs
Up: 10.75Mbs (much better :-) )

Now to switch back to the WiFi dongle and will edit that result into this post.

Edit:

Ping 16ms
Down: 17.45Mbs
Up: 5.61Mbs (better but nowhere near what it achieved on the promo... in post #540.. Strange)

Dongle is the D-Link DWA-171

Edit 2:
Still with the dongle...
Ping 14ms
Down 16.77Mbs
Up 4.05Mbs

TV not in use for any of this testing... Seems maybe some kind of cache / data flow in the up direction with the WiFi part of the router... Pages have started slowing down loading again... interesting.. upload buffer issue?

You've all got nothing on me! Lol. I've got 4G Satellite Internet from Xplornet. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. And no. There's nothing G better out where I live. This is the third Internet company I have. The best I ever get on a clear day is 5MBPS. Here's my results while it's raining.
Check out my Ookla Speedtest result. What's your speed? Speedtest.net by Ookla - My Results

Wow! I went back and looked at your speed Caper. Speeds like you and I are getting should really be against the law. I'm paying $85.00/Month for what's to be up to 10MBPS. I think I'm just going to buy a cell phone booster for my home and use my wife mobile Hotspot. It gets over 20mbps.

Just ran this test...
Recently in the last couple of days Bell (Fibe) stuffed me onto this promo 50/10 (was 25/10)
Computer directly connected to Sagecom 2864 running Ubuntu Linux 16.04LTS

First shot gave me 32.5 / 10

Bell must have figured what I was doing because a re-run of the test gave this:



Yes, FireFox 47 under Ubuntu has a Flash plugin. :-)

No noticeable overall performance improvement of internet activity doing normal "stuff".
I don't do any P2P stuff at all.

Here's a recent one from Rogers. I'm paying for 60/10. I'm also on that CRTC bandwidth study and get similar results from it. I have seen lower 80s download on occasion, but upload seems to be pretty consistent at just under 11.


I haven't lost my mind. It's around here...somewhere...

Dwayne and Capers......Should note its Mbps so bits not bytes for you guys reporting results in text. 8 times difference. You are 1/8 of what you typed.

Actually, due to framing and other overhead, it's a bit more than 8x.

I applied for that CRTC monitoring device, but nothing became of it.

Since the upgrade, a lot of wifi instability has occurred with the connection as well. Not impressed.
