Re: Fioptics Speeds all over the place

OK - download capacity is only shared on the FTTN service under certain conditions so FTTH rules that out. FTTH also explains the 10 Mbps upload.

speedtest.zoomtown.com seems to be behaving correctly right now. A trace route to it might show up routing issues.

It is also preferable to use wired connections for the speed test to rule out local wireless throughput problems.

My speed right now shows 2.7 down 7 up. I am doing this test remotely using Teamviewer, so that might not be very reliable.

The total ping time seems reasonable for Fioptics FTTH.

I would not expect Teamviewer to make the difference between expected 30 Mbps down and ~3 Mbps - but best to check again with cleanest system / fewest elements in play.

It is always possible that you have an intermittent fault....

Thanks, I think I will plug in directly and run a test when I get home.
