I've noticed that the net has been running a little slow today (I'm less than a 100m cable run to the exchange). Normally I hover around 19-12Mb/s.

Hornsby exchange:

That's rather good - what street are you on?

 

Hunter street - 375m from the exchange LOS, ~460m as the cable lies according to this: http://www.tpg.com.au/maps/

 

 

I must have to many jumpers betwen me and the exchange then.

 

I live on the units on the pacific hwy - wireless hub, connected to ADSL 2+ modem, that then goes into a digital multiplexer to the MDF, and then to the exchange - i think the multiplexer they have on each floor is causing the choke.

Not too shabby.

 

Distance from Exchange (cable length) - 2.7 kms

 

Then I switched to the Sydney server ....

That's pretty good ... slightly better download and a slightly less upload.

 

Considering the distance .... very nice.

Just tested using speednet from my tech workstation out of interest.

 

I'm quite amazed, I am assuming they shape the bandidth for different areas of the building because they have a direct fibre connection, theres noone else online currently and I just got:

 

.41mbps down

.31mbps up

16ping

I had no idea it would make that much difference.

Yup. Home routers are typically a main limiting factor.

 

You'd probably be amazed at how much difference an actual gateway machine would make, or in some cases putting something like OpenWRT on the router.
