Re: BT Fibre 900 Upgrade / Smart Hub 2 upload throttling..... Update

I had a healthy upload of 105-120Mb solid until the firmware update on 23rd October with downloads near maxed out as well.

I've never had above 110Mbps (maybe 111 if splitting hairs). Since day 1, on older firmware, the firmware that lots of other people had issues on.

@busterboy1  just checked and you are correct, the package is indeed 910/110

After having 120mb upload for the last month I assumed that was normal!

Re: BT Fibre 900 Upgrade / Smart Hub 2 upload throttling..... Update

Thanks, All,

 

that's very interesting indeed! 

I can only get the 110 down regularly when using nperf and the servers are in London.

In fast.com it mentions three servers but at least one is fairly local, but the results are very variable and I never get to 110.

Ookla speedtest doesn't show me any servers within 80 miles despite living in a major UK city, so I wonder if there is some network/routing issue within BT.

I'm just relieved that I am actually able to get ~110 robustly as indicated by nperf which probably means my line is performing as advertised.

I'll feed this back to the FTTP team and try to update with some real world testing for throughput/bandwidth.

Thanks again!

To be fair, it does seem to vary.

I don't get offered FF500 - and my FF900 shows a 900Mb speed rather than a 910Mb (upload still 110, though).Screenshot 2020-11-03 162023.png

@ch 

WOW I have never seen the 900 package that cheap, is it on offer or a permanent thing now.

I also notice it's a 900 / 110 package and as you say not 910 / 110

That's an awesome price. 👍

Re: BT Fibre 900 Upgrade / Smart Hub 2 upload throttling..... Update

Bit confused...got a call from one of the mod team here yesterday saying they had passed details to BT and something should be sorted shortly.

Got home and had an email from BT stating a fault had been opened and was already resolved and fixed.

Just did a speed test...it's still not great...reduced upload is really starting to become a pain. Can't do a cloud sync in decent time without it saturating the connection and impacting wifes laptop/tablet and smart TV.

Additionally, looking at my nperf history, there is a noticeable drop in my achievable download speed the same time the upload speed was capped.

My speeds have been great within the last few months of ordering, upload speeds were capped at the start @50mb but have never been problem now with solid 111mb

 

download rates on idm can fluctuate at max of 122.00 MBps / around 970mb download speeds.

 

Can this stay like that forever, probably not after all my staysafe is at 450mb i am more than happy with my connection right now.
