Speed and testing

So who's lying here?

Ookla - speed test show 75 Mbps  which is about what I pay for

Bing says 30 Mbps which is how it feels ATM - YouTube is continuously buffering on any res above 320p (can't even get 1080p) is YT slow or am I being throttled ???

Nothing been changed my end and the local network seems fine .

Re: Speed and testing

Thanks, that's reading 77Mbps so i guess the cable is fine ....

After a little more research I found that the router had defaulted (after a power cut) to a different (busy) channel . Fixing that and moving the router around has improved  youtube streaming

 

Thanks all :-)
