Thanks Daniel, yes, I did see that - North West Manchester area ...
My BT connection thinks I am in Newcastle ... but actually in York!
Wierdly, if I do a speetest.net check, I get this:
which on a wireless g connection through 3 brick walls, is pretty good.
But tbb test gives me about 4.5 megs down and 4.7 megs up.
The bt beta site when running gives around 17megs down, but you can see there are patches of ZERO's as it goes ... bringing the average down.
Earlier I was getting a zero back from the BT beta tester, but I at least have some connectivity now.
I raised it with BT (India!), and they immediately escalted it ... they "seemed" to find a line fault and are "working on it for 4 hours now" and will call me tomorrow morning.
With the above stats you would think all is rosy, but connection to various sites is erratic ... and has been all day ... hence I suspect some more generic problem elsewhere.
