    Default Network access and speed testing

    1)Can I expect " A Grade " Result in pingtest.net for 384 Kbps of Broadband at Hyderabad, India ?

    Mine is Tata Indicom ,Wimax .It is giving me C or D .

    2)The executives of the company says that they said that we should not believe speed testing tools and they show wrong results .They believe on only the downloading speed during software downloads.

    So now as I am getting 36 to 51 Kbps of download speed in fluctuation mode(for 384 Plan). when They say that it is perfect. Are they correct? I knew they wanted to cover their fault.
    I am getting that much speed when I close all pages .

    3)My Plan is 384 kbps (Wimax broadband)

    I am getting
    0.49 download speed and unknown upload speed when tested with speedtest.net

    D grade in ping test.net

    359 Kbps Download speed ,156 upload speed and Round trip time100 ms
    Please let me know if these are the correct measurements.

    *Upload speed is very low as in between 126 to 180 and some times around 200

    Ping times or latency does not decide the speed at which you can download data. You could have a 1Gbps line and have the worst latency. Latency depends on the distance between your computer and the server and the route your requests take to get to the server and back but speed will not be any different while downloading a large file if you had a ping of say 500ms or just 20ms.

    The speed you are getting 36 to 51 KB/sec is what I would expect from your connection.
    384/8 = 48KB/sec So 48KB/sec is your connections max limit and if you get anything near 80% I would say you are good and should stop trying to increase your speed by any other means other then upgrading to a better speed plan.

    Thank you !

    * I got this much speed as the executives of the company worked on my complaint just a few hours ago.
    * Before this from the date of installation (A few hours ago the Indicom staff came to me and made some changes as I complained to the higher officials) I got Very poor speed as Download speed around 200 and some times 70 Kbps .
    and upload speed used to be 74 Kbps and not at all shown for some times .That it why I am worrying even I am getting this much speed now.

    Would you please check wimax status report which I posted here.
    The DL CINR is 25 DB at that time and they changed it to 13 +DB now.That's why I am getting good access speed.

    *Does it (latency) affects the browsing speed and time of pages loading?
    *The modem fixed for me is old one and it 's taking more time to start when I switched on it.Does it affects?
    *If it is the problem .how can I get this problem with latency get solved ?
