Poor upload speed cmp to FF and Safari Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Prev Previous Post   Next Post Next
I have a fiber internet access with which I pay for and use a 10/10 Mbit/s (10 up and 10 down) symmetric internet connection. It is possible to have up to 100/100 for a higher fee, but I settled for a speed that saves me some money and yet provides a nice experience.

The thing:
When I test my internet bandwidth against a test site at with OmniWeb, Safari and FireFox all the three browsers consistently get download speeds at about 12 Mbit/s. That's fine. After all, I only pay for 10 Mbit/s and the consistency between the three browsers indicates at least that the browsers in use doesn't effect the result much.

But for the upload speed test OmniWeb crawls compared to the two other browsers. I get an amazingly nice 22 - 28 Mbit/s upload speed result with both Safari an Firefox. I've done all tests I mention in this post many times. OmniWeb has never got above 5 Mbit/s and I would estimate it averages at about 4 Mbit/s. That is about 1/5 or 1/6 of the Safari and the Firefox result. Really poor is the right wording I guess.

An observation: When I do the test with OmniWeb and looks at the messurement figures continuously rendered at the test web page during the test I see how things get slow.

Test site:
Press Starta Mätning and it should be obvious.
