Is my fiber rate normal?

My Dbit Fiber is “Normal”?

DirtyShady


Good morning,

 

I find it odd that my Bbox Must is only 300Mbps down.

I had a doubt at first, because the technician had made a right angle with the cable that could have broken the fiber, I did packet loss tests with PingInfoView and I have absolutely no packet loss for a whole night (0.0%), which would mean if I don’t crash, that my fiber has no problem?

. But I’m still maxed out at 300Mbps over Ethernet.

 

I have done packet loss tests with PingInfoView and I have absolutely no packet loss overnight, which would mean if I don’t crash, that my fiber has no problems?? And that the right angle (which I’ve tried to make less accentuated since then) has no incidence.

 

Could someone tell me more? Is it normal that the advertised speed of 500Mbps max (of my subscription) is not respected? That 500Mpbs is on a condition?

 

Does that mean that if I take out a 1Gbps subscription I’ll only be running at 300Mbps?

 

Thank you

what is your cpu? Me with a not very powerful cpu, it’s saturated and I don’t have the maximum flow.

After that, it is true that some posers insist on torturing the fiber by imagining that it does not pose a problem.

Instead of rounding up, they’re shooting like co…

Warning, speedtest.net gives a maximum speed of 300Mbps for most servers, you must use another more honest site .

500Mb/s is the max flow, I have 1Gb/s max which has never been reached ( between 350 and 600Mb/s in general)

I went to do a test with speedtest at the caretaker of my building which is also made of fiber but with Orange, and he gets 450Mbps download with Speedtest.

 Me, since I’m with Bouygues + more fiber to get to my living room, can it be different? Anything wrong with him that’s better than me?

Just choose a 10Gb server and don’t use the automatic choice, I just got 506Mb/s a few minutes ago.

And where do you choose that?

Since when does Speedtest give a data rate of up to 300Mbps?

I have been using it for years and I have always obtained a result close to the max flow proposed by my contract (currently on 1Gbps DL offer, I get a Speedtest result around 950Mbps).

You just have to check that the PC is quite recent (example on a 4 years old TOSHIBA, I don’t get more than 600Mbps) and only use the RJ45 in gigabit only.

No problem on speedtest, even with the default server chosen, for Orange Pro, it gives:

@pudding1009

 Yes, that’s to change servers, but where are the 10Gbps ones?  

 All servers (in blue) are capped at 300Mbps (including Orange).

Before, there were others (in black) that gave me more than 600Mbps.

To measure more than 600, I have to go now to speed.io (on the servers I used before) .

the servers are mostly in 10Gb/s, there are even 2 Bouygues in 40Gb/s (the 10th and 11th of my list)

909Mb/s / 369Mb/s this morning in Ethernet on the one in ipv6

So, my opinion is that speedtest.net which is not reliable at all since I get twice as much throughput on speed.io or even testdebit.info .

As said above you need a good PC, with a good processor and a SSD hard disk.

On my laptop, I get almost the same thing, either in the 900’s or so, whatever the site: speedtest.net, speed.io or testdebit.info.

Note that I get slightly more under Firefox than under Chrome.

The tests take between 60-70% of my i5-4210M processor on my laptop, for your information.

I just tried speed io and test débit.info the results here are equivalent with test débit.info ( n perf ) seems to use the same servers as speed test and also allows to choose them (I still used bouygues anycast 40gb/s ) much lower with the server of the harbour of speed io. Have you tried the 60 million consumer test? https://www.60millions-mag.com/debitest-60-le-testeur-de-connexion-de-60-millions-de-consommateurs

 No, no, nothing like cookies, seriously.

Just look at the CPU occupancy during the test, you might be surprised.

Right button on the taskbar, and task manager, and performance. (from memory, because I use more Ubuntu than Windows).

The best flow tests are done on the command line, because no interface, site, browser etc…

Maybe try iperf: https://iperf.fr/fr/iperf-download.php

 EDIT: ha no, it’s for testing between servers, this thing, I think…

Fatally, he needs cookies since I have to accept them…

On the machine I’m on right now (I have 6) it works, but I’m behind a WDS bridge so I measure the speed of the bridge…

Besides, he’s full of ads on this site.

 That said, all this does not explain the capped operation of speedtest.net that I have seen degrading over time with fewer and fewer sites exceeding 300Mbps …

Personally, I don’t see that. Also, I use ublock origin as an ad blocker on Chrome and Firefox. AdblockPlus takes up more resources.

I still don’t see how a cookie could have any influence on a flow test. If I run a test by launching a New Private Swimming Window (so no cookie etc..), the test also gives 384 Mb/s, which is the max of my 400 Mb/s cable connection.

There is also http://www.fast.com to test the connection speed, but, in fact, this is the connection speed you will get on Netflix, so, not really the max of your bandwidth, if your ISP doesn’t have a great interconnection with NetFlix (ex Free for example…).

But it’s a light test.

For me it gives this, so it also means that it’s not super reliable…because I can’t exceed 385 Mb/s in theory and practice:
