    CLEO Broadband Performance

    Has anyone noticed poor performance recently?
    Im consistantly getting 20-40Mbit out of a possible 100Mbit during the day, after 4pm im seeing closer to 80Mbit, still not maximum but much better,
    On the whole webpages are sluggish to load.

    Poulton area, Lancashire.
    Anyone else find this?

    Hi

    Yeah we have the same problem, we get (according to Speedtest.net) between 10MBit and 30MBit out of a (apparently) 100Mbit uncontended Fibre connected line to Preston via Virgin Media equipment.

    We are based in Chorley.

    Hi
    We also are having the same problem. I did a speedtest today and got 20mbit download. The performance over the last month has been really poor. I believe they have had a lots of DOS attacks

    Worse today.
    10-20Mb down, 3-15Mb up (including school traffic)

    Two tests today:
    80Mb down 49Mb up
    55Mb down 66Mb up

    Ran within a few minutes of each other, still quite poor considering its easter break.

    Its not about being fast enough, its supposed to be 1:1 100mbit/100mbit, during the school day I've seen around 20-50mbit at most. Thats less than 50%!
    Cant even achieve full speeds when most of the network is inactive during the holidays.

    Check your SLA - we'd get money back for that.

    Broadband : Comparison Chart - not quite an SLA but it does state 1:1.

    I just wanted to get a feel from other schools in the Lancashire area on how theirs was performing (CLEO schools).

    Ive a feeling its more to do with the Lancsngfl proxy/filtering rather than the available local bandwidth.

    I get that as well, and I'm not talking about the average joe blogs website I'm talking about Microsoft and even web servers on our local intranet - provided by our LEA

    Do you run any local filtering? It's the first step towards getting a decent non-LEA provided connection.
    If you have it in place already just ask them for a non filtered connection and try it out.

    We have Microsoft TMG so have the ability to filter, however I dont think there is an unfiltered connection on offer at the moment (we'd still have to go via their proxy server farm), I think they were investigating it last time I asked.
