What does this mean?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have fiber (40mbps) with Sky, I've had so many problems where in the last 30 days only 6 of them I've had full speed. When it first started reducing I was getting like 8 - 12mbps (I live in Manchester UK) but when I ran speedtest.net it was saying my nearest server was in Leeds (50+ miles away) now I'm getting between 0.5 - 5mbps and it thinks my nearest server is in London (300+ miles away)???

What the heck is going on or could cause this? Sky are saying they have some throughput issues since Nove 22nd that there trying too fix however I've had my problem since getting it on the Nov 8th..

Sounds like failing equipment or poor maintenance on their end. This sounds like fail-over traffic. I'd contact the ISP and raise some hell.

Geolocation of IP addresses can be somewhat unreliable.

Depending on which IP pool you're getting an address may affect your perceived geographic location.

Edit:
Also, if you're being piped through a backup circuit with an alternative WAN endpoint this may change where you are perceived on originating.

Oh don't worry I have, I got them too send me their new hub upgrade for free and told them I'll be claiming at least the last month back as compensation as 6 days out of 30 of above half promised speeds doesn't justify a months cost.

I think their router they sent me is dodgy as I get points where videos stored locally on one computer being watched on another, it has to buffer????

The strange thing is if, if it says i'm in london I get better results from a london server than if I try a manchester server which is actually closer too me.
