hackdrag0n: I'm only getting 686 down on my 1000mbps connection. Is this normal?


@hackdrag0n Are you testing over Ethernet or WiFi?.

Perfectly normal. What are you expecting to get?

I am just looking at MR as one option.  What are your suggestion? 

 

 

 

I have read about the views perhaps more so in the past, but how is it now.  I know they do a specific gaming option.  From that I would presume some even hardcore gamers might have given them a try. 

 

 

Friends don't let friends join MyRepublic. Stay away!

 

In terms of raw performance your best two options are Orcon or 2Degrees (formerly Snap).

That's normal, my PC with 1Gbps connection to switch, then edge router got around 600-700Mbps and now gets around 700-800Mbps after I updated the NIC drivers and removed some ad blocking software and disabled antivirus for the tests. This PC also scored the same connected directly to the edge router without the switch. I also noted that IE scored the consistently the best over other browsers.

 

 

 

My server with 10Gbps virtual nic, connected to virtual switch, connected to 10Gbps switch to edge router gets 940Mbps every time.

 

 

 

I think a lot of PC's with budget NIC's are not capable of reaching 940Mbps with these speed tests. Although I can copy data between my PC and the Server at home at 97+MBps all day, adding speedtest and browsers just seems slow things down.

I was all set to cancel Myrepublic then they bought in Gb connection ever since that my 100/20 connection has been 105/21 at all times. Communication has been great and they explained anyone on a slower plan (100/20) will get the speeds they pay for now. So I do recommend Myrepublic at least on the 100/20 and let's be honest who needs faster than that in an average house!

You need to remember than many of these isp's won't have the infrastructure for 1gbit at the moment. This should get upgraded as they hit contention. Most need Juniper MX40's on backhaul. These things are $30,000 a pop. This is why you are not seeing it happen fast. Isps making $30-40 off your connection have huge investment to make.

Has anyone else noticed a big dropoff in fibre speed this afternoon in ChCh. Had been running at over 100Mbps since the upgrade but has all of a sudden fallen away to 16 to 20Mbps

Did your speed come back up yesterday afternoon?

 

Daughter is home from uni, so internet is getting a hammering as she catches up on all the stuff she missed while studying. She would have grizzled if our speed had dropped.

 

Just done speed test and getting 105mbs.

Really stay away if you are still deciding MR are not good at all.

Now that MR have fixed the evening speed drop issue they had, I am happy with their service. Getting constant 105/21Mbs at any time of the day.

 

What are the reasons that you would not recommend them?
