Since it's Pakistan so maybe we have our own logics of PTCL lol.
Here is a detail and kind of a question.
Today I got my ONU line setup. Usually, the Port speed is on your username/password but before I even entered the password, I could see the DS/US rate which was 8mb/1mb . Why is that first of all ?
Because I have more usernames and each username when entered shows a different DS/US rate .
Now for the actual question.
I understand the US/DS rate is indeed the total attainable speed.
Here is what I got with PTCL :
"On my copper line I had 4mb connection. The profile set for my port was also 4MB. Now when I downloaded anything it gave me full speed ( But only with download manager ) and half speed with browser ( Maybe because it requires more resources ) . When I pinged a website parallel with the download, the pings fluctuated until I stopped the download ( Because 4MB connection/4MB attainable port was being fully used ) . I got the problem's base then . Problem was that the Port 4MB was being fully occupied by the download leaving no space for the ping. So I asked them to increase my port to 6mb keeping my connection ( speed ) to 4mb which they did and I was able to get same speed in both the browser and download manager. Then I had Stable ping with parallel download."
Now on this ONU line,
Port is set to 8MB while I have a 4MB connection. Since the port is big enough, I can get stable pings even with a parallel 400kb+ download speed. But if I download through Browser, speed is just 200KB although speedtest.net gives 4MB . This is just some illogical thing that I can't understand because last time increasing the port fixed this issue but this time the port is already big. I will ask them for the issue but what do you guys say about this issue ?
Also, please answer that Why does my friend's 4MB connection gives me 1MB speed when used on my router. Similarly, in my Office I have 8MB but when I use it in home it gives 1MB. What the hell is this lol ? Maybe my port settings should be changed so I can use full speed with any username ?
What could be the issue and what could be the fix ?
