Problems in Worcester? If so, please reply with details.

Hi, I am aware of myself and a number of other users on here having slow download speeds in the Worcester area.

 

I get 3Mb/s download speeds after 8pm at night (45Mb/s during the day), and I am on the WMSTP (St. Peters) exchange.

 

Please can you post in here if you have speed issues in Worcester, and hopefully we can point BT to this forum thread.

Re: Problems in Worcester, please post if so.

I decided to put this onto a more scientific basis so I measured ( with the exception of 19:05) the speed every 5 mins tonight

19:00 44.08
19:10 25.59
19:15 19.59
19:20 27.11
19:25 21.23
19:30 15.71
19:35 16.22
19:40 8.17
19:45 8.65
19:50 11.79

Re: Problems in Worcester, please post if so.

Decided to do the same myself tonight, these are my results so far, (download | upload):

 

17:35 48.56 Mb/s | 11.58 Mb/s  BT Speedtester (Second Test)

 

18:14 43.22 Mb/s | 15.61 Mb/s  Speedtest.net (Maidenhead XILO)

 

19:02 42.08 Mb/s | 10.40 Mb/s  BT Speedtester (Second Test)

 

19.46  6.40 Mb/s | 15.00 Mb/s  Speedtest.net

 

19.50 10.56 Mb/s | 12.86 Mb/s  BT Speedtester (Second Test)

 

20.30  7.67 Mb/s | 15.24 Mb/s  Speedtest.net

 

20.33  5.50 Mb/s |  0.01  Mb/s BT Speedtester(speedtest@speedtest_domain) THIRD TEST

 

20.37  7.15 Mb/s | 15.31 Mb/s  Speedtest.net to prove upload is OK

 

BT Speed test third test which forces username of speedtest@speedtest_domain always gives me a very bad upload speed, this is why I did a www.speedtest.net right after to confirm it is actually ok.

 

I can provide screenshots for all these results if needed.

 

IP profile for my line is 50.15 Mb/s and 20 Mb/s and has never changed.

Re: Problems in Worcester, please post if so.

The drop happened at exactly the same time for both of us. No coincidence ....

Just set up a cron job on a linux system to measure this every 10 minutes ...
