David Channe Vy has sent me his results for today (what about the others?) and together with mine, I can make the following preliminary observations:
- I’m getting 72% of what I am paying for on my MyT 256
- David is getting 39% of what he is paying for on his ADSL 512
Note: I’ve decided to ignore the results for the 1k and 10k files both from the US and Europe. They are too small and the latency and connection time is big relative to the transfer time and therefore bandwidth calculation cannot be made.
As from now, only do 4 tests at a go (100k from the US and Europe and 1000k from the US and Europe). Do this 3 times per day (at around 8:30, 16:30 and 22:30). Thanks.
Second day update
- I’m getting 68% of what I am paying for on my MyT 256
- David is getting 29% of what he is paying for on his ADSL 512
I pity David who got an average of only 150kbit/s today from his 512kbit/s ADSL connection…
Third day update
My internet connection is as slow as molasses tonight. I’ve collated all the data and things are looking interesting. Simply said, we are getting much less than what we are paying for. I’ll give you hard figures tomorrow.
