Anyone else seeing unusual upload speed results from speedtest.xport.co.nz. 

Speed test statistics
---------------------
Download speed: 2000880 bps
Upload speed: 83328 bps
Quality of service: 98 %
Download test type: socket
Upload test type: socket
Maximum download pause: 231 ms
Average download pause: 5 ms
Minimum round trip time to server: 55 ms
Average round trip time to server: 221 ms

Was OK the first 2 times I tried it today - said upload was at least 130kbps, but now every time I run it it starts uploading I see the counter sitting bang on 137kbps then at the last second of the upload test drops to ~85kbps... www.speedtest.net is normal (~130kbps).

Also does anyone else get the 403 error when trying to view the detailed analysis also?

Although that speed test liiks nice and has extra info, I believe it has some problems and you should use the one from the XNet home page which has always given me more stable results than the old one.

I can not view the detailed screen either, and can't remember that I ever could (at least not the last fiew months).

Tried both, same results.  Any other XNet customer seeing the same thing or is it just me and just today?... still doing it.

Xnet speedtest has always done that. Upload speeds on it are always rather random.
It's been like that for over a year.

Yes, agreed.

For that reason I use www.speedtest.net as the Upload Test actually means something (as much as this type of test can possibly mean anyway Undecided ).

Remember people, dialup is capable of 200+kbps upload. Tongue out

righto, fair nuff.

Just that in my experience (been using it about a year) its always been pretty "accurate" (and by that I mean close enough to speedtest.net to be believeable).

Thanks guys.
