  • Can you share the script / spell?

    This might be a while... I'm not at home and do not have access to that system from here. But when I do, I'll try to remember to paste it on here.

  • Ta.

    I'm trying the Homeassistant integration at the moment too.

  • I Googled to see if I could find the basis of what I did... but actually found this, it's less than 9 months old and looks so much easier than what I had done.

    And someone graphed it all:

  • There's a docker somewhere with a speed test cli and grafana Web interface I've been meaning to try. My 500 Meg connection has been sub par recently so need to log and complain.

    Edit: I've just read your links properly and you've linked it. I blame the heat.

  • Nice. Thanks again.

    The Homeassistant integration uses the Speedtest cli it would appear - makes sense to stick with that as I already have the framework for running, logging & maintaining.

    I'm using the one for comparison too.

  • I do wonder if Virgin are going to hit serious problems before long. Apparently large swathes of their core infrastructure have barely been touched since they acquired Telewest in 2006, choosing sticking plasters instead of strategic solutions for a fair bit longer than they really should have done.

    One of the various reasons we decided to go with Hyperoptic in our block was down to the shitty 2006-esque 75 ohm asyncrhonous coax Virgin suggested we allow them to install. Hyperoptic do fibre to your comms room and cat6 to your home for flat installs.

  • There apparently was a big outage yesterday, but my internet still isn't working. Anybody else still suffering issues?

  • All good here (nr Cambridge). No drops at all in the last couple of months.

  • Does anyone have a link to VM live chat?

    I'm stuck in an infinite jerk circle on their site trying to contact someone via the online chat or text messages.



    Text sms = +44 7533 051809

  • Weird morning in SE13; 10 minutes after I tweeted at the corporate account the upload issue was resolved.

  • Anyone having any issues out west? Some pings to google are timing out at the moment.

  • "The Intelligent WiFi technology in your Hub has spotted that by making a small change to your Hub settings, you could enjoy faster speeds to any 5G-ready devices at home.

    Changing your Hub settings is nice and simple – we’ll do it for you remotely, so there’s nothing you need to do.

    And if your WiFi’s ever running slowly or you’re experiencing a problem, take a look at our step-by-step guide to get back up to speed."

    Alright Skynet, you do you..

  • I use mine in modem mode. Check mate Virgin.

  • Yeah, same, I have a flashed Asus for da wee fee
