Thanks to David Channe Vy, Fezal Ackburally and Inf (what’s your real name?) and coupled with my own data, I am getting a pretty interesting picture of our ADSL connections.
Here are some observations:
- The minimum bandwidth is at 22:30 (I got a record low of 1% of expected bandwidth last night)
- The average bandwidth (during the whole day and for all of us) is only 44.37%. This clearly indicates that we are NOT getting what we are paying for. 44.37% is not best effort!
- Sometimes (and generally at 8:30 when everyone else is stranded in his/her car on his/her way to Port-Louis) we get peak bandwidths of 75-80% of what we are paying for. Where is the missing 20%?
Anyway, let’s continue with the data gathering process. Thanks to those who are helping.
5 July update
Same behavior as previously. I consistently get an average of around 65-70% of what I’m paying for for my MyT 256. David Channe Vy consistently gets an average of only 35-40% of his ADSL 512. Are MyT users being prioritized?
Bharat, Selven and Fezal are also sending me data.
I think that Saturday and Sunday will give us some interesting raw figures to analyze.
