Hi kitz

I hope you don't mind, and it's just a thought, but how about having a separate stars for long lines or lines over a specific length

I realise this may prove non workable, as it would be reliant upon users knowing their approx length, so please disregard as needed

The other idea I thought, was to remove the particular rating, as it has the potential to skew results no matter what you do, or how you describe it

I'm sorry also, I thought the comment box was to show your type of connection and I did not realise you wanted the connection type, and provider listed in this thread, so apologies and I am BT business, 80/20, multi IP with line length of 25 steps (bet you've never heard the distance described that way, sorry, but 25 steps,  I have never bothered to run a distance check to cab)

I will check tommorow from a client on LOS, through a talk talk backhaul and post if this is alright

Many thanks

John

Thanks Ron.   I tried to cover it with
I see exactly what you mean by using the word congestion, but my thoughts there are that the average man in the street wouldnt know what that meant.

How about I change it to

"Throughput Speed / Congestion *"

I guess the average man in the street wouldn't be subscribing to the forum in any case.

A bit long winded, but what about " Download speed compared to sync speed"

I was wondering about "Speed consistency" with an explanation about experiencing speeds below normal and/or predicted?

Left my rating and a comment, no errors happened.  But I noticed when writing the comment it said its useful for others to view, however I find no way to view other people's comments.

Yes, that is doable -  simple html change - and something I feel could be understood by man in the street and makes sense to the forumites :)

seems a fair few trash ratings from some people with 1 stars for everything and a vague "isp sucks" comment.

Good fun, one observation though, I could only rate one of my ISP's, I did PLusNet - perfectly understandable as only weirdos's have two ISP's.

But ..... we are the weirdo's

Or some of us anyway, would like to rate Zen as well, if I had the chance.

Hi chunkes

We have same issue but it's not an issue as such, as I said I would try from a client who has 3 different ISP

I have not time right now, but I think you need to clear your browser cache, including cookies perhaps, and also ensure all web traffic goes out on the zen IP, then you should be able to rate zen

Many thanks

John

Thank you. :)

TBH, Im not too bothered about comments, & the connection type was just a suggestion for if someone didn't have anything else to say so don't worry about it :)

Thanks for your feedback guys.   Since all appears to be working ok, Im going to publish it live on the main site.

>> A question... are these ratings, in response to this thread, going to remain as part of the system?

If anyone wants their 'test' result deleting, so they can re-vote,  let me know.
