IDNet Help / Re: Low single thread speed
« Last post by jaydub on Yesterday at 13:29:30 »
I too am feeling somewhat happier this morning having migrated from TTB Backhaul to BTW.  It's eraly day's yet, but my TBB speed tests have averaged 70.5Mbps this morning.  Still a bit down on the multithread average of 74.1, but much better than I was seeing on the TTB backhaul, which has averaged 59.6 since I migrated in a month ago.

There is still some interesting variations in some results, but probably not worth worrying about.

My code has appeared for some work tonight... and, depending what's involved, work on other codes could have an effect on mine anyway.

A couple of speed tests this morning lead to some (very) cautious optimism...  :fingers: :fingers:

There is a Zen customer on TBB that has just raised the subject of poor single thread speeds:

You are not alone.
Mines pretty much back to what it was, although there is engineering work tonight to a large amount of post codes (including mine)  Then on the 18th, 19th, 22nd which all include mine again then just my postcode on the 23rd. Maybe the congestion on the upstream may get smoothed out :eyebrow:

Actually 4G can do up to 60Mbps with some mobile companies. The theoretical max is about 150Mbps, IIRC.
I get over 100Mbps where I live with EE but still data wise wwatching UHD/UHD HDR content via 4G would eat data like crazy.

Currently it's £22/month for 15GB at 4G speed

It's probably a good thing that 4G can't handle UHD speeds... 15GB is about one and a half episodes of Blue Planet 2  :eek4:

I see he's up in the wilds of Scotland... the Zen engineers must feel as though they're playing Whack-a-mole  :P

Actually, with the coming of 4G mobile to Aberdaron (remote NW Wales) this week, it's actually starting to look viable to drop the ADSL Max (2Mbps on a good day) for a data-only mobile package. Currently it's £22/month for 15GB at 4G speed vs. £20/month for 50GB of slow ADSL Max.

Thanks- nothing on my area code, but there's nothing serious wrong so I wasn't really expecting anything!
Mine list loads of area codes plus mine for the 16th and 17th, maybe things are falling apart here  ;D I agree with the 4K TV demand issue, 4K TV's are now cheap and many now have HDR10 and Dolby Vision and HLG HDR too, so even more bandwidth needed. Sadly I have noticed the shops selling those TV's don't make it clear that to steam at these resolutions you need a minimum bandwidth which is a bit sneaky. I can see in the evening congestion will probably get worse over time before it gets better for many ISP's. Also 4K gaming and te huge patches needed will tax the system even more. Let alone 4K screens on Phones. (my eyes could not tell the difference on screens that small)
