Re: Monitoring Broadband speed overtime

I'm using testmy.net.  If you can leave a device running with a web-browser open (preferably wired directly to a router to get best speeds), you can automate speed tests once/hour.

Thinkbroadband can provide automated latency tests if your router will respond to pings, to give you some idea of connection quality.

You may not like the results!

(1.5Mb/s downstream last night, average pings over 150ms and many dropped packets for me - unusable in any real sense).  Over-Utilisation been going on since September at least. (Area 31 AL3).  The most I ever get in the evening is 5Mb/s.  CS say it will be fixed beginning Feb., now end Feb etc....  You get the picture

Re: Monitoring Broadband speed overtime

It seems a bit random tbh . I just registered and forgot about it.
Approx 4 weeks later I got an email saying my box was on the way.
