BT infinity download speeds are up and down like a fiddlers elbow. Normal??

Hi,

 

I just go BT infinity, fibre to cabinet.

 

I am happy with the average speed, 45mbps wi-fi, and 70+ wired, but when i do a speed test the graph looks like the teeth of a saw blade. 90,0,70,55,40,2,50,1,115,3,66,5,40,9 and so on.

 

Before the upgrade my speeds were relativity constant, 15,16,18,14,19,12,11,15,15,14 and so on.

 

In other words, a speed test gave results on a graph that looked like small ripples on a straight line. I averaged 16mbps, and usually a speed test showed I was getting close to my average all the time.

 

Now my average is far higher, but is fluctuating from 0 to 100, it looks like a recording of an earthquake on a seismograph. Up, down, up down, up down.

 

Is this normal?

I take it this is using speedtest.net?

 

It could happen, your line is under training which it will be for 10 days at maximum. It normally stabilises at around 3 days, leave it a couple of days.

 

It could also be because of some software Firewall, Anti-Virus, etc

 

If it continues after a couple of days I would advise posting back here but for the moment I wouldn't worry about it.
