I regularly run a speed test on this site and I always get bandwidth results between 238kb/s and 240kb/s(I have a connection rated at 256kb/s).
Since yesterday my results are all over the place(i.e.from just over 200kb/s up to 270kb/s).
Has anyone who uses this speed test often been getting unusual results as well. I'd like to know if it's just me or it's a problem with adsl.org.'s site.
I've rebooted my modem and changed how I connect to my modem(i.e.used different LAN port and tried a USB adaptor)to eliminate if it's a problem with how I connect to my modem but I still get these unusual results.
According to my ISP's website there are no service issues in my area.
The results yesterday (Saturday) were strange. I have Blueyonder 512kbps which, for about a week, has been giving about 720kbps, indicating that I have had the 50% speed increase activated. Checks yesterday with adslguide.org.uk/tools/speedtest.asp were showing it was down about to around 400kbps. Downloading Norton AV definitions showed a speed of around 90kBps (equivalent to 720kbps), so the test figures were nonsense.
Simon7063, I understand that you can get different results due to how busy a site is, it's just that I've always found that my results from this site are always consistent(as you've found). I've never had the results I'm getting now.
That's what lead me to try different connections to my modem, as my first thoughts were is it a problem with my equipment/drivers. I've even done a system restore to see if that corrected it. No change.
It's not just the speed test results that concern me. It seems like when I visit other sites, I'm getting pauses when pages are downloading, when I don't normally have this occur.
Maybe I'm just reading too much into these things but I started this thread to see if other forum members were getting spurious results from the ASDL.org.net so as to rule out it's a problem at my end.
