Thanks for those that did help

This has been derailed enough, which was what I was trying to prevent from start.

@mod please close this thread. Thanks

Wacky: This has been derailed, which was what I was trying to prevent from start.

It was the reason why I wanted an average speed for general protocols. I knew the trolls would come running had it been made specific.

There is no justification. I have asked a very simple question which has been blown out of proportion, and instead of giving someone a minimum amount of help (one sentence containing your average download speed), people spend their time trying to nit pick what is wrong with how it was asked and how it can be critiqued, force me to change my initial question to suite the needs of others, and in the end still just pick at it. Well played.

@mod please close this thread. Thanks


most of the people are trying to work out if the problem is with your gear/method or your connection.

humor those who have actually asked reasonable questions. ignore those who haven't contributed and don't throw your toys when you don't get all the answers you want in the first few posts.

The question you're trying to ask is "my fibre is slow, how do I fix it". We're trying to help by getting more details of your setup (because most of the time a fibre speed problem is a problem with the customer's setup), but if you're not willing to engage no one can help you.

Incorrect, I asked for an average of speeds. 5 or 6 ppl posting their speeds (even if it was 200mb fibre) would of sufficed. The first reply to my post earmarked what was coming.

I thinks it a simple matter of people not replying to the question that someone posts, and instead replying with that they think the person should of asked. In some cases this could help an individual.

In my case this didn't help, as I needed to just get a rough figure of a group of people. That way I could without any back and forth on the forum, take that information, and I would clearly (without being accurate) be able to see if my line is working as it should or not. I am not talking about marginal loss. I am talking about a substantial loss in download speed. This was all I was trying to find out.

I'm on 100/20 plan and on torrents max I've seen is 6.5MB/s over LAN

most of times it's 2-5MB/s over LAN

might be just low-specs router supplied by BigPipe.

Sorry not on BigPipe, on Spark, but I can max my connection on 100/20, which is a tickle higher than that as per Talkiets post.

6 torrents, not that many seeders, the other night I got 12MB/sec. Typically 9. So maxing the 100 plan speed is very achievable.
And thats over wifi. AC, 4 metres to AC router, using AC laptop that shows a TX rate of between 434 and 867 Mbps.

I know OP, that I haven't helped with your information required, but its just to show thats its achievable, thats all. It's not too hard.

Thank you very much.

This was exactly what I was looking for and hoping to hear.

12.5MB/s. 25MB/s on 200Mbps. Neither to my house though. :(

Try again with a more powerful router IMO. Keep in mind the DSL-N55U is designed for ADSL use. It doesn't make business sense for Asus to include hardware in it which can handle much greater than 24Mbps WAN-LAN throughput. Interesting to hear you get 50+Mbps through it, more than I'd have expected TBH.

You could also potentially try connecting directly to the ONT with a computer running a PPPoE client, and downloading a Steam game or well seeded Linux ISO. As has been mentioned elsewhere on this forum though the Windows PPPoE dialer can run into throughput issues on fast connections, so be aware of this while testing. I've found myself that a 200/200 line will do 200/200 from an onboard (Qualcom) NIC on the Windows 7 PPPoE client, but only ~100/200Mbps through an Ethernet-USB3 adapter (Realtek). Haven't tested above 7 though because ew, 8. :p

It is not the router, as I achieve the same speed when connected directly to the ONT via gigabit ethernet. :( Thanks for the tips anyway

a trial is a little different to calling up and signing up outside the trial

During our original UFB trial, we provided a few different routers to test how they would stack up against each other (essentially simulating how it would work with our customer base). Not every trialist who requested a router received the same one :)
