What Does Your GeForce Now Network Test Look Like?

I ordered BT package after finding the solution to this thread describing how BT offer "standard", "stable" and "super stable" options on their customers internet connections to better optimise their connection depending on what services they  like using, especially cloud gaming services.

https://community.bt.com/t5/BT-Fibre-broadband/Horrible-ping-spikes-and-packet-loss/m-p/1915395

 

Modern cloud gaming services use highly variable throughput UDP traffic which stresses internet connections out in a different way compared to more traditional traffic.   Which is possibly why those "stable" and "super stable" options have been provided.   BT were first ISP to offer cloud gaming service package with broadband in Europe so they may have more insight into the needs of cloud gaming services compared to other ISPs.

But i am concerned that many other more recent posts in BT Community with folks asking for help with weird ping spikes, packet loss and high latency simply get ignored and nobody in BT Community recommends asking for "stable" or "super stable" options.

 

So was hoping fellow cloud gamers who are currently using BT can show me their GeForce Now network test results to make me more confident that my new internet connection is indeed going to prove to be an investment as my current situation looks like

Lower than expected bandwidth with higher than expected packet lossLower than expected bandwidth with higher than expected packet loss

For me traditional speed test (ones not optimised for the larger packet sizes and higher frequency for cloud gaming scenario) say my internet connection is good.

Is streaming over BT network recommended by GeForce Now?   

Did you need the "stable" or "super stable" option enabled?
