Had fibre and gigantic t plan for a few days. I also have a Samknows box.


Download speeds for domestic tests are perfect.


Speeds to Sydney bounce between 13Mbps to 700/800's . Usually the lower 


But speeds from SFC and LND are consistently around 50 to 66 Mbps


I see in the latest Samknows report than international speeds are way higher than this. Like 179 for SFC and 199  from LND


. I seem to be getting international speeds reported on for a 100Mbps plan.


Is there a fault somewhere up the line?

what @ben28 says:


wildly varying speeds from a near-fortnight test in Forrest Hill.


Also alarming latency spikes via net monitoring tool *


> 2k+ jitter not good, right?


Both PCs (win7pro i5 desktop, lubuntu 64 laptop) ethernet wired, updated, malware checked etc.
