Connection good but Internet response slow
Posted on 2007-10-03
Our offices are part of a service office arrangment. So our Internet connection is provided by the people who own the building. We have a very fast connection to the Internet, I am told that it is 15MB. though I find that response rates from websites can be quite slow some times.
When using FTP is downloads work very well. I have done a line speed test and got these results.
39,601 kbps upload and 15,571kbps download.
I have discusssed this with the building managers who have contacted the IT service company that manages our network but didn't get much information.
Basically when you click a link on a website it takes longer than it sould to react. It makes for slower surfing. I have checked this on lots of different computers and it is the same.
Is there any way I can test the connection and highlight what may be causing this.
