Hi all,

longtime no see...
lets to the point, ive got problem testing my VSAT BW using speedtest or some other a like. the problem is with the upload result, but the result will be true when we testing using real trafic by uploading some data to FTP Server.

is there a web out there to test this vsat upload? coz speedtest doesnt show the real BW ...

its realy painfull when ure customer said "MY UPLOAD IS NOT DELIVERED AS WE LEASED !!!!!"

Note : for Download everything is work like a charm...only upload test result problem.

mhr,

I experienced the same problem here. Using the famous (or notorious??) speedtest.net, download result is acceptable but upload is disappointing. I dig a bit deeper by doing traffic sniffering in my satellite modem, and I found that most of the online speed/bandwidth tester do not try very hard for upload. They send a few intermittent trunk then rush for the result. For a thin long satellite link if the test is not careful designed then the result is most likely misleading.

So I guess the first thing is you need to persuade your customer the online speed test might not be accurate at all.

There is also alternative website such as http://testmy.net doing a dedicate upload test, where the result achieved is a bit better than speedtest.net, although still not close to my expectation. Wink Note that the interface of this website is not fancy.
