Gigafast Slow Speeds

Vodafone had same problems on VDSL 80/20. That time they were blaming BT infrastructure. However with specialist software it is easy to see what problems and congestion are on " Cable and Wireless " data centers belonging to Vodafone. 

 

I feel now it is pointless to go with Gigafast . Regardless how much you pay , you will get portion of all users traffic. Roughly 65mbp/s off peak and 25mbp/s peak download.

 

BT broadband only deals now cheaper than VF and real throughout speed is constant as advertised. In my case 68/20 all 24/7.

 

I'm writing it to prevent people wasting their time with VF . Try to get something more decent

its telling me that im getting 250mb lol

the prompt im using is iperf3 -c speedtest.wtnet.de

 


The above command would measure the upload speed.

For download speed, you need to use the -R option also.

iperf3 -c speedtest.wtnet.de -R

 

-R, --reverse run in reverse mode (server sends, client receives)

This timing is not look so good. I was thinking to swap ISP and become gigafast customers, but my actuall ping looks better with PlusNet at the moment;

Looks like you are routing those tests via PlusNet so surely that's not a representative test of Vodafone Gigafast?

Thank you for the information. I'm about to have my fibre installation tomorrow which will replace the BT supply which regularly gives 97-80mbs but is twice the price. Fortunately the BT contract hasn't been cancelled.

hello,

 

I recently upgraded all the ethernet switches in my house to gigabit because I got home internet that is faster than 100 Mbps. Somewhere along the way (I'm not sure exactly when), my main desktop's ethernet receive speed (download) slowed down and it seems to be limited to ~40 Mbps. Upload is fine on internet speed tests, and I can achieve the full 200 Mbps that I'm expecting for upload.https://www.lustysexstories.xyz/

To try to figure out what was going on, I used iperf between my desktop and another wired computer in my house, and the desktop seems to be able to send at 800 Mbps, but can only receive at 40 Mbps. If I take the

ethernet cable out of my desktop, and plug it into a laptop, the laptop will get the full 200 Mbps/200 Mbps that I'm expecting from an internet speed test.

This leads me to believe the problem really is with the desktop and its ethernet adapter. I've tried updating drivers, rebooting, using different ports/cables, and none of this has worked. My ethernet adapter is an Intel I219-V, and it's integrated into an Asus Prime X299-A motherboard, running Windows 10.

 

thanks

Snap, I am within my 14 days and unless they resolve this I’m gonna get them to come take it out and will go another supplier.

 

not only that but it’s me who has had to chase for 9 days and not one proactive call or email to update me.

 

not only that but after I spoke to uk based personnel they sent me the wrong ticket number which I had emailed my screenshots of speedtest and still no one messaged me or called me.

 

I had to call again and chase.

 

absolutely shocking customer service from the support teams.

 

Dan
