Jase, can your restart your router and retry that test to the webnx speed test server?

@cbrpilot

Pretty sure that not the issue as battlenet/starcraft updates, windows updates, and Nvidia updates are all coming down at line speed.

im not super concerned, its just ive never seen a speed test to the US over about 25mbps to the US. which considering others with similar speed connections can pull 50+, just odd thats all.

Windows updates will come off an Akamai CDN Node, and I suspect Nvidia will too. So that will be 2 or 3 hops away and come down at line speed.

I have my reasons in terms if asking you to restart it. Just humour me.

Just keeps getting bettertongue-out

webx server

others





Tried a few NY servers and they all about the same. Everything else seems good enough for me tho. It's not often i need those speeds but nice to have it when i do, especially if i'm paying for it. Nice improvement on what i was getting.

Thanks.  Just trying to make sure we have the full picture here.  I don't want to imply that this is anything to do with the router.
Just useful for us to know.

@xADDICTx, nothing has changed on our end. 

 

Your profiles are all correct, no congestion anywhere. Have you restarted all of your equipment?

 

Can you post up results from NZ and post international results from different times of day?

 

Dave.
