Internet Connection Speed Thread

Tue Aug 15, 2017 12:05 pm

A thread to share your Internet connection speed. I'm not sure this is in the right place because it doesn't directly relate to Solus, it's more of a community thing.

I'm with BT, and am currently using the Infinity 2 package. Supposed to be getting 76mbps down and 18mbps up, but I'm getting quite less than that as of late (although the upload speed is slightly faster than promised!) - used to get 71mbps as recently as last month but it suddenly went down a few weeks ago...

I'm using the speed test as shown on http://nperf.com/en instead of more popular choices, and am doing the test from OVH datacentre in France (in fact it is the same data centre my own site is hosted in).

You've still got quite an awesome internet speed. Are you using an ethernet cable or wi-fi? :)

My PC is connected through WiFi with broadcom-sta driver. Works really good. However, I believe the test is against my router connected with ethernet, fiber.

Ah, I see. :)
I was doing my test from my bedroom which is above the room the Internet router is in.

Yeah Wollongong, one of the only places in Australia you can get that kind of speed for a reasonable price. I'm with MR too but only 100mbps.

So we should host the Australian repo on your connection? :P
