    Hi,

    Im looking for a way to test my FTTP WAN link, Ive uploaded files to an external source and got some results there but Im looking for a method for a “fuller” test if that’s the expression to use. Our upload speed is 20Mbps and I uploaded a 1GB file at an average speed of 326.9 KB/s taking 54:38 minutes

    Any thoughts would be extremely appreciated.

    If you’re trying to get the use of your total bandwidth for something like this, you’ll probably find that such will be limited to something between 10-25% of the total link size. Your numbers work out to about 1/7th which is better than 10% but less than 1/4. If there was any other traffic running on the link at the same time, such as any other user with a web session open, a lot of emails or streaming media to TVs, that all takes bandwidth too. Sounds fine to me.
