Will try that now now. Just doing a iCloud backup on my iPad. That's running at around 3.5MB/s...If you did a 200MB testmynet while torrenting at 40MB?
This is what I like.@sand_man that's a lot of retransmits, no matter which way you look at it - especially to a local server. GPON is likely to treat retransmits differently to Active E, but those levels look way out of range. I think most important is just to find out if your light levels are down to an acceptable point (usually -17 - < -26db). That said, at these lower speeds, retransmits should hardly crop up. At higher speeds, remember, you're sharing a 1.25 Gbps PON port between at least 30-60 active homes (significantly better sharing ratios than most FNOs), so getting line wire without any retransmit is slightly optimistic.
Fresh cables and decent routing kit means you've all but eliminated home network issues - hopefully.
At this point in time, I have to agree, the joy of 1 Gbps is those incredibly quick bursts when you want them. The larger problem is that a lot of networks just aren't ready for 1 Gbps clients yet. Far too many production servers still run off 1 Gbps switching, 1 Gbps uplinks and 1 Gbps backbones. We've even seen local speedtest servers that are limited to 500 Mbps max, lest a speedtest take down their network.
I'll make some enquiries with the engineers who operate the Vuma PON network next week. Will also send you another iperf3 server to test against.
