Speed test of my Internet connection

I have CIKtel cable Internet connection for many years. Almost ten years? At the beginning, I have 25M download, 2.5M upload plan. Here is the speed test result  in 2013.

I upgraded the plan a few years ago. Now it is 100M/10M plan.

When I use Speedtest app to make the test, the result is quite good.

  • Ping 9ms
  • Download 124.25Mbps
  • Upload 10.70Mbps

When I use ShawSpeed test to check it, the result is as below:

The speed is in the same range as the test above.

When I use the testing tool of CIKtelcom, I believe it has fewer middle nodes between my home and the CIKtel server. So the speed has about 15% faster.

The tests above are all through IPv4 only.
I have an IPv6 tunnel broker setting on my Router, or OPNsense.

Here is a test tool, from ipv6-test.com

ipv6-test.com

Since there are only two test servers, one is in Paris, the other one is in Limburg. So I picked the one closer.

The IPv4 speed is 109Mbps, The IPv6 speed is 103Mbps. No big difference, it means the IPv6 tunnel broker has not reduced the speed a lot.

I found another test tool which provide more information about the testing.

See, the jitter value, the measurement of the stability of the connection quality. IPv6 is 6.74ms, and IPv4 is 3.23ms.

The download and upload speeds of IPv4 and IPv6 are very similar. The IPv6 tunnel broker provided by He.net is great.

 

Notes:

Internet speed test Glossary

Download speed, upload speed. I don’t think there is anyone who can not tell the meaning of the word.

Latency (or Ping)

Latency (or Ping) is the reaction time of your connection-how quickly your device gets a response after you’ve sent out a request. A low latency (fast ping) means a more responsive connection, especially in applications where timing is everything (like video games). Latency is measured in milliseconds (ms).

Jitter

Also called Packet Delay Variation (PDV), jitter frequency is a measurement of the variability in ping over time. Jitter is not usually noticeable when reading text, but when streaming and gaming a high jitter can result in buffering and other interruptions. Technically, this is a measure of the average deviation from the mean.

Packet loss

Packet loss occurs when a packet of data being sent over the internet is not received or is incomplete. This is described in the percentage of packets lost compared to packets sent. Packet loss in most cases is a result of poor signal/line quality.
