The Bandwidth Speed Test - Whats Yours?

Discussion in 'Gaming and Software' started by Gundulph, Dec 20, 2006.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Test out your Download and Upload Connections with this very simple Test:

    The Bandwidth Speed Test

    Go on - admit it - Who has the Fastest and Who has the Slowest?

    Looks like I'll be a good contender for the Foundation Position!

    965kb/Sec which will take me 14 minutes to download 100MB!!!

    Place your results here to see who has the King and who has the Arrse of Connections...

    Download 1.544 Mb/sec which is 9mins for 100Mb
  3. I pay for 3 Mb/s and get 390 Kb/s max. The ISP say it's BT but they deny it!

    16.8 Mb/Sec 100mb file takes me about 2 minutes :twisted:
  6. 19.2 kbps downloads 100mb in 11.5 hours
  7. 1.77 Mbps, 100 Meg file in 8 mins. :roll:

    Quality of service 87% - :?: :?:
  8. I cannot get it to do anything...

    Firewall on or off; nothing doing...

    Can recommend this however:

    Bandwidth Place
  9. 1.92 Mbps-I pay for 2 so better than I expected.

    100mb in 7 mins.
  10. Have you updated your Java plugin lately?

    Passed-over_loggie, if your only getting 384kbps keep complaining until they do something about it. You may find you come across the "Your paying for up to 3mbps" brick wall, and they blame line quality. You may well have a crud line, but quite equally the contention on your exchange may be so huge that its maxed out. Unless you keep complaining, they wont do anything. ISP's are not a rarety, threaten to move ISP if they are not providing the goods.

  13. You have to bear in mind trip wire, that any online speed test is only as good as your route to it. If there is a slow or congested link along the way, its going to impact on the test results. They are only there as a guide.
