AVM FRITZ! Card DSL in the test: ADSL and ISDN with one card
The test results
Let's start with the download speeds. In each case, one file was loaded onto the PC three times in a row using the GetRight download manager and the specified average download speed was noted. This test clearly shows how big the differences in speed can be within five minutes. To make a distinction, files were loaded from an FTP server from Chip, a WWW server and the FTP server from AVM. Obvious differences in speed between the different server types were not clear.
Next, the ping times to major well-known websites were checked with VisualRoute . Chip.de, MoPo.de and T-Online.de were tested. Here willHowever, it is clear that the AVM FRITZ! Card DSL achieves lower ping values overall than the ECI modem from Telekom. However, even minimal time differences and the different test days and times can have a significant impact. Both series of measurements were carried out on weekdays between 9:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.
Finally, there are the ping times that were reached in Unreal Tournament (UT) and Halflife Counterstrike (CS). A graphic is not used here, as the values are usually only stable for a short time and only represent a snapshot. With the FRITZ! Card DSL, however, slightly lower ping values could be achieved here than with the Telekom modem. With UT values from about 52 ms, with CS from about 43 ms with the AVM card were noted. The ECI modem achieved values of around 60 ms for UT and values of around 50 ms for CS.
