Up-stream isn't saturated. Disconnected all devices on network, made sure Google Drive, Dropbox, Icloud, etc aren't running on my machine (they weren't)

 

speeds didn't change.

 

@ Bigpipe - yes, initially that was the problem. they told me they'd changed the plan, but they hadn't. After confirming the change, I managed to get 500KB/s down (http & p2p) but that's as good as it got.

 

Reply from BigPipe Tech Support after confirmation :

 


"we can see from the latest speed test on your line that its showing higher speeds from the exchange to your ETP.
Comparing these to the speeds you are getting, It would seem to us that there is a lot of speeds been lost between the ETP and your jack point.
We suspect from here that your internal wiring or jack points are a possible link to the speed decrease.
There are no disconnections showing on your line from the last extended lines test we done. This indicates to us that the line is providing service as it should between the exchange and your ETP.
To conclude, we can advise that you could get your internal jack point and wiring looked into. Over time, these lines like all others can become corroded and corrosion can lead to disrupted speeds.
We could if you wish, arrange a tech for you. As we suspect that this is internal, the wiring cost is not covered by Bigpipe's standard connection. There is a charge of $199 for jack point replacement etc.
If this is something you wished to look into further with us, please let me know. We would have to charge this to your account first before arranging a tech."

connect via Ethernet and do the test again...

 

Wifi is not suitable for accurate speedtests

Yeah, I went through BigPipe tech support and they asked me to do the tests again  with ethernet using Spark Auckland as my server, and do a tracert. you'll see the results below which is what was sent to them and what prompted their reply, as you'll see in my previous post.

Certainly not fantastic but better - In regards to P2P traffic, it's unlikely you will ever see "line speed" on a torrent - you can try boost performance by increasing Maximum number of connected peers per torrent up to the Global maximum - this will put a lot more load on your internet though and may cause issues for other users in your house  (who are using skype/gaming online etc).

 

The best way I have found to get line speed downloads that match your speedtest results is to download a game on steam.  Not always great though.

 

Another test you can do is to check the line contention - do speeds improve between midnight - 6am, 10am-2pm on a week day?

I see line speed all the time on my lousy VDSL here. That is why I have 2 connections because even with the shaping in utorrent, the connection gets hammered and browsing goes to crap.

Was that tested using Ethernet? I suspect a dodgy router or other internal network issues if that is the case, those ping times should be <1ms on a LAN connection.

If you've eliminated wireless by connecting via Ethernet it points to there being something else using your line, an issue with your modem/router, or potentially with your computer.

 

Stop everything which could be using your connection, either uploading or downloading. Downloads, Skype, Dropbox, torrents, Steam, etc. Test on speedtest.net using Ethernet. If speeds are still low, repeat this test with a different modem/router, and potentially a different computer.

Yeah, tested on Ethernet.

 

Ran it again now. Would you have any advice to check if I am internal network issues?

Here is my latest Speedtest

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yesterday evening saw some improvements in speed. Average about 1.0MB/s now.

 

 

 

Thanks for everyone's input. Really appreciate it.

Times after the router are fine which is usually caused by the router being CPU bound with something it is doing causing its own responses to be slower. 30ish ms is normal for DSL on a profile with interleaving etc.

 

I would factory reset the router and see if that helps first.
