On YouTube's video quality report, Spark Dialup is rated for 'lower definition' which is no suprise, However there is a fair number of HD on that graph

It won't be anything more scientific than the iP range spark call 'dialup'
If the happen to have repurposed some of those IP addresses for broadband that would explain it.

Correct - it's my job to clean that up at some stage and unfortunately I can't take credit for pushing HD video down dialup, just for working on more pressing things than getting the (purely reporting) IP assignments correct in the Google Video Quality reporting. :-)

 

 

 

In the same way, currently the Spark ADSL is underreporting the quality... VDSL and Fibre however are currently clean ranges I believe and show representative performance.

Yup, Vodafone are/were doing the same last year, was amusing to join IRC from a dialup range and see peoples reactions ;)
