How Fast Is My Broadband?By Mack005 • May 8th, 2012
The easiest way is to do a broadband speed test
This broadband speedtest was done in Wallawatta, on a weekday between 8pm to 9pm with Airtel, Dialog, Etisalat, Hutch. I did three test for each network with a time gap of 5 to 10 minutes, and then arrived at the average. The main objective of this test was to decide whether I should change my Internet Service Provider (ISP) or stick with Dialog.
|Download Speed (Mbps)||Upload Speed (Mbps)|
I know it would have given a better picture if I had done a number of speed tests at different times of the day and on different days – weekdays, weekends etc. I actually did, but somehow lost them. Please note Mobitel was not included in this speedtest as I did not have a Mobitel SIM with me.
Ok, now lets go back to the speedtest results. Looking at the download figures, one would say Etisalat is the best followed by Hutch, Dialog and then Airtel. However I am a bit concerned about the upload figures as well, since I rely on cloud computing to sync all my devices at home and office.
What is your view on this, please share your experiences as well, thanx in advance
