What Is Your nbn Actual Speedtest Result?

What is your actual speedtest result?
I am using 250/25, but my phone can only reach speed averaging 40-70mbps.
If I used laptop, I can reach 240mbps.
I mainly download only from phone.

It is kinda a waste to upgrade to higher plan if your phone can't support it.

Update: my laptop is using wifi as well, and can reach almost 250mbps.

      Shape the egress traffic on your router or Gigabit switch to 49Mbps and that stops hitting NBNs policer. Your upload speeds will be closer to 50Mbps.

      It is recommended to use the Windows app.

        Why? those speeds are pathetic.

        Paying for 1000/50, can't even get 50% of the download on a wired PC. You call that good?

            @spackbace: My PC is from 2013, my phone from a January 2019 (a mid range). The only common thing is the Google TV.

            You either have something very wrong in your setup or are getting ripped off by the ISP.

              @GTR12: Just ran a speed test on the Deco M5, cat6 connected to the router (TP-Link AX20), and get 515/46

              So yeah there's bottlenecks or something somewhere, but I'm gonna switch away from 1000/50 anyway

      If you are running the PC test in chrome that might be why your speeds are lower than you are expecting. It starts to throttle the download that fast for whatever reason. Not sure why your S20 speed is so average, might be a router issue?

      I have 1000/50 and get about:

      Oneplus 7 pro wifi: 900/38
      PC cat6 (chrome) 700/30
      PC cat6 (speedtest windows app) 900/40

      Similar results to you, 50-150 in other appliances with crappy wifi adaptors.

        PC test was done through the app, and as pointed out earlier I got a similar result from the mesh router plugged into the main router (which is fairly new)

            @hentar: The Xiaomi only has 1T1R, as do most of their models…

            As a result you should try use 5Ghz, but usually you'll only get around 120 mbps. I've the Mi 10 Pro and it suffers from this issue.

            •  

              @IncidentalCase: I think you are right. It seems my xiaomi is connected to 2.4GHz. and when it connect to 5GHz , I can only reach around100mbps.

              •  

                @hentar: Check the 5GHz bandwidth settings for your router as it may default to 40MHz but you'd need 80MHz channel width to get faster real world speeds.

                It also depends on the wifi configuration in the device. I believe the Xiaomi 8T is only 1x1 so probably won't get much faster than that, unlike your laptop which is probably at least 2x2 and may be more sensitive. The iphone 12 should be 2x2 but will still need that 80MHz width.

            •

    Speedtest.net speeds will always vary between servers (obvious I know) and you'll normally find ones hosted by your own ISP/RSP perform a lot quicker than those that aren't.

    For example my 250/100 plan actually gets 272/94 on the RSP hosted server, but with an Optus server in the same city that becomes 224/75.

    •  

      Yup. i tried several servers and cant reach 100mbps from my phone

    Don't blame the NBN for your phone's Wifi sucking. If your laptop can almost max out your connection it is not your NBN or your wifi, it is your phone.

    And what do you need more than 40mbps for on your phone for? Which phone has an 8k screen with Wifi G?

        You can find those speed details by logging into your VDSL2 modem. Is that Australia Broadband or Aussie Broadband?

        •  

          You're right, I was able to find the attainable rate on my modem which was the max speed supported. I wonder how I'm losing 5 - 10 Mbps from it. The modem is connected to a Netgear orbi via LAN, and I've got another satellite router so wireless strength should be ok. Something I need to investigate.

    I am happy with the general download, but the upload is quite dismal. Is there any way to increase the upload to around 8-10 without having a super fast plan?. I am also a fair way from the exchange circa 10km, and around 900mtrs from the street node. Thanks for any suggestions!.

      Exchange and node distance doesn't matter for HFC. It is possibly a congestion problem. Where are you uploading to? Reset the Telstra modem?

            What is really interesting about this letter is that it was addressed to Mrs SS and sent by mail when our Telstra account is in my name and sent each month by email! At the end of the letter it thanks her for being a customer when she isn't.

    I'm on Superloop FTTN 50/20, but only get up to 35mbs max and often 25mbs during peak periods. I knew this going in, as the copper travels a long way from the node to my suburb. It's very disappointing. Burn in hell liberals. I can't bring myself to downgrade to 25mbs as I want every last bit of speed my old copper can muster.

    Strangely just recorded 101.50 / 37.59 for my connection (I'm about 150 m away from the pillar on FTTN).

    While good, Vodafone has some pretty scummy practices. I have noticed that some websites get throttled or do not load. For example, I can't play videos from Bitchute unless I run it via a VPN— It just flat out refuses to stream. It also blocked ZeroHedge on several occasions because it didn't agree with the content.

    • +1 vote

      For a 200m run you should be able to max out a FTTN connection.

      You've either got cabling issues in your house (have all the other points been disconnected?) or in the lead in or further up.

      Either that or you're not connected to the node you think you are, and are on the tail end of another node far far away.

      Check the sync speed on your modem, if it's down around those numbers get on to your ISP who should forward it on to NBN to investigate.

      Switching RSP won't make any difference if it's a line problem.

    Speedtests aren't all that accurate unless you disable absolutely everything prior to taking them. That includes your wifi (or ensuring no one is connected) and any service on the device you're testing from which may generate any network traffic. Otherwise they are not a 100% reliable indicator.

    Running a speedtest will/should saturate your connection, however that doesn't mean the device running the speedtest is getting all available bandwidth. In fairness it actually shouldn't if there were any traffic management on your router and other devices were in need of bandwidth.

    Where possible, it is best to use a router which has the ability to test from the router itself - after disabling all internet connectivity for your other devices as noted above.

    Alternatively some routers may allow you to view the live traffic on your wan port or vdsl2 interface during a speedtest which will give a closer estimate. There is however some overhead so this isn't 100% accurate, however I'd argue its more accurate than looking at the speedtest result.
