> I just noticed you use the dslreports pre-canned profiles for measuring. I would recommend against doing that. As these will use different number of upstream/downstream flows per profile making comparisons between different profiles harder. I would recommend to get a free dslreports account and use the speed test configuration to use a fixed number of flows per direction (I typically use 16/16, but on slower links often I do not get all 16 going, in that case I retry with a lower number of flows, also set manually). After registration you can also request high resolution buffer bloat measurements, which nicely illustrate a link’s behavior under load (but might not work well on very slow links, so maybe you are already running the optimum configuration).

Thank you.

I did so, and here's the latest result:


It varies greatly. I think that it's due to the nature of the 3g connection.
