Just got an email from nperf telling me about an update to their service. 

 

Here's a list of what is new (quote from the email):

 

  • Entirely coded in HTML = no more need for Flash!
  • Uses secure HTTPS connections
  • More fluid animations thanks to WebGL 

What differentiates us from speedtest.net:

 

  • Works on every browser (Firefox, Chrome/Chromium, IE/Edge, Safari, Opera, Vivaldi, Maxthon...)
  • Using HTTPS makes the test invisible to antivirus/firewall
  • Results are more trustworthy, even for high speed broadband connections
  • More detailed results with precise curves
  • Complete transparency on the servers used
  • 100% compatible with IPv6
  • No ad banners!

Interested in your feedback folks.

Version 1 has the Auckland My Republic server - the beta Version 2 does not.

 

i emailed nPerf about this last week and they replied:

 

 

We are still waiting for MyRepublic to upgrade the server software.

 

We hope this will be done soon …

 

Anyway, we’ll try to find more servers partners in NZ.

 

 

Both versions are excellent and give similar results.

 

And no advertising!  wink

My nperf test to Auckland v1 (MyRepublic server - upload seems to be constrained compared to the other service below)

 

 

My speedtest to Auckland (2degrees)

 

 

Also I am on a gigabit connection and results vary wildly - I have heard speedtest.net doesn't cope well with high speed connections.

Australia only returns 100MBps on a 200Mbps connection but the real shocker as always is the UK.

 

 

Not even 1MBps upload speed - holy slow turtle speed networks batman.

Hello guys,

 

 

 

Thank you very much for using nPerf :)

 

We identified an issue on upload test with high latency connections. This can affect tests on far far away servers.

 

We've fixed that in next beta (2.0.0b10). We need to do a few more testing before publishing it but this should be done before the end of the week.

 

 

 

Best regards,

 

Renaud @nPerf

V6 not working either.

 

My V6 Address is: 2401:7000:0:9:71a8:d51e:feb7:92af

 

Geekzone recognises it. This doesn't. 

 

Not having a go, just providing constructive feedback :P

I tried running on my HP Microserver (the only machine that is always connected via ethernet at home) and it didn't like that it is not WebGL-compatible, so had to use V1.

Blame your ISP... Oh, wait. Same ISP, same UK server. Frankly 100 - 120 Mbps to the other side of the world is nothing to cry about.

 

 

To Auckland, MyRepublic, same numbers as before. I wonder if MyRepublic is limited to these?

Regarding IPv6 I get:

nPerf server

 

Running OK!

 

nPerf server v2.0.1 2016-03-08

 

This server responds only to HI requests !



on the test-ipv6 page, so that is fine. It however refuses to test via V6, also the Myrepublic server doesn't exist with me either (literally no NZ servers). It'll be nice to see more ISP's adopt it especially those who currently have speedtest.net servers as this is a far better testing platform - also loving the no ads since Speedtest complain if you block their page full of ads with a small speedtest in the middle. Good job guys!

That's strange. Can you try to access to https://ws-ipv6.nperf.com/ and measure the response time (approximately) ?

Approximately around 3sec, in reality 2.75sec (Chrome dev tools). Page generates a "not found" error.

Except I don't get 100-200Mbps to UK - I get 25Mbps download and less than 1Mbps to UK   that is a real shocker.

 

And before anyone says it is my pc, my network, my router etc - I have conducted tests at over 800Mbps to NZ servers I have sitting around so it's not my equipment.

 

My best result so far has been:

 

UK: 

 

 

AUST:

 

 

But there are times when we do get less than 1Mbps and that seriously sucks when trying to support overseas clients, running websites in other locations or just plain visiting other sites overseas.

I get OK upstream to the same UK server. My connection is reasonably heavily utilised currently which I suspect is degrading my results.

Spark Fibre 200/20

 

 

 

Auckland

 

 

 

 

 

Sydney

 

 

 

 

Melbourne

 

 

 

 

 

London (nperf was consistently climbing and a larger file size would have given a faster result, speedtest; I tested three servers and this was the best of the three)

That should not cause the issue, timeout is set to 10sec. Can you retry on b11 please?

Hmm. Using the android app, works fine over wifi(adsl) & 3g. Thought I'd see what speeds I'd get if I limited to 2g, but on 2g neither nperf.com or the app work. 2Degrees.
