Thinking About Swicthing To Infinity

I was thinking about switching to BT Infinity 76Mb.

 

I'm currently with Virgin Media's 100Mb.

 

Everything is very good currently, getting 104 / 10 Mb

 

BUT

 

I experience some Jitter on the connection.

 

 

Was wondering if someone could post some Speedtest.net Stats from the servers:

 

London

Manchester

Dublin

Paris

Wellington, New Zealand

New York, USA

 

And also the same/similar servers from pingtest.net,

 

Finally a scrrenshot from a ping to bbc.co.uk in CMD.

 

 

For Comparison to see how well BT infinity fairs.

 

I use my connection primarily for gaming so need a good stable connection.

Re: Thinking About Swicthing To Infinity

Jitter isn't just network related, your computer can cause a great deal amount of Jitter but it is mostly network oritentated.

 

Speeds have nothing to do with a nice gaming feel, I had less than a 1 mbps for years and gamed on that flawlessly and would get Jitter of 0 or 1.

Re: Thinking About Swicthing To Infinity

Estimated Speeds on Infinity

Download: 26.3

Upload 5.6

 

Pingtest

 

Speedtest

 

I download at 3.1MB/s, whic isn't too bad and is very near that speed.

 

CMD ping www.bbc.co.uk

Definitely not my computer. Running a very good top of the range AlienWare.

 

I fully understand Speeds are not essiential in gaming HOWEVER, speeds are also need to be consistant when downloading huge expansion packs and what not.

 

Hence why Speedtest captures speed and ping and pintest captures ping and jitter.

Re: Thinking About Swicthing To Infinity

You can buy the best computer in the world, the computer may work flawlessly but it's electric currents that affect other compononets is one of the many ways, alienware top of the range 😄 If only.

 

Do you want to see anything more, I could do a few more results from speedtest if you wanted.

It's definitely not my PC. And I dont get your comment about AW not being top of the range, please explain what parts they do not offer, as they do the best CPU, GPU, SSDs, RAM, Monitors etc....

 

 

And more tests wouldnt hurt, but maybe from someone with a better Infinity connection.

Hmmm, again, really high pings put me off risking a switch!

 

 

I guess I will have to play the wiating game and hope someone with a good quality Infinity shows up so I can have confidence for a switch.

Re: Thinking About Swicthing To Infinity

please remember infinity and the virgin network are different technologies and do perform differently  

 

also tests such as pingtest can be affected external broadband activity and are not fully reliable as they can change from server to server
