Dan Elwells BB speed test

  Taw® 18:49 14 May 2005

I have just recently upgraded to 1MB BB and when I run the quick test on the above all my ping times show up as beng poor. The download test shows good results, just the pings are poor. Any way of improving this or is it something to worry over?

I upgraded to 2mb with pipex and ran same test with very similar results. When i contacted pipex they asked me to use speedtest @ the adsl guide web site. Tests on that site out of 6 readings, 4 were at 1.8 and 2 were below 1.3 download speeds. BT wont do anything without Pipex reporting fault on my behalf. Cant see how they will do it with ADSL Guide set of results in comparison to Elwell results.

Provided that you are not losing any packets I wouldn't unduly worry. click here for more detail.

dont forget the 1MB refers to the download speed not the upload. As long as pages load quickly all is well. You could try the speed test at click here

Many thanks members, having run the test on pitstop my pings are showing very healthy, but still poor on the D Elwell test,
