Gigafast Slow Speeds

4: Newbie

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

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)
