Looking at my stats I am on a 17A profile with 70/30Mb/s attainable.

 

I previously would attain 60Mb/s or higher throughput when downloading. I typically can't exceed 35Mb/s any more, even using Spark's speed test servers.

 

Usual disclaimers: -all results are using wired Ethernet, router/firewall is capable of sustaining 100MB/s plus. Gear hasn't been changed since the 'good old days' when I initially set it up with BigPipe.

 

Anyone else seeing similar? The speeds are very reliable, with real world performance lining up with synthetic speed test results.

Yeah, I should really have done that in the original post. I'll get them tonight.

OK, it would seem my issues are time of day related, I usually don't download or speed test this early in the day. It is giving me 66/26 now which is what I would have expected.

 

I may gather more information in a less anecdotal manner from here on in.

Border router may drop icmp.

@ipv6pipe would be able to confirm.


No issues with that tbh.
