http://speedtest.btcentralplus.com/beta/ is easier, but I find it very variable and it jumps all over the place during execution..

No IP Profile report?

It isn't linked to a link yet it seems. Can run from any connection.

If it's the "way forward" I hope BT aren't thinking of hiding people's IP Profile!

Perhaps they are just about to bin 'profiles' smile *dreaming*

"soon" and "BT" - Hmmm...

EDIT: I've just noticed in the page title they are calling it "Speed Tester Lite"

No, BTWholesale are still keeping the IP Profile on the BT Performance Tester: http://speedtest.btcentralplus.com/

And BT Beta Speed Lite are using Speed Lite Test for can run the line for a speed throughput as it trial beta, it won't show IP Profile of course: http://speedtest.btcentralplus.com/beta/

You can run both sites anyway!

Maybe so at the moment, but the notes on that beta page state that it is a beta for the new PT - which one would assume to replace the current PT (the one that reports the IP profile).

And BT Beta Speed Lite are using Speed Lite Test for can run the line for a speed throughput as it trial beta, it won't show IP Profile of course: http://speedtest.btcentralplus.com/beta/


That makes no sense.

The new tester was also pointed to in a Fibre post, so I tried it. Before I saw this thread.

What I said about it was:-

That's interesting. Back-to-back tests it gives 3Mbps or so more than the old one. Downloads a lot less data.

A lot easier to use, but I hope it is just a test of concept. If we lose the IP Profile info it will be a retrograde step in my opinion. Although if the IP Profile is going to track the sync rapidly on all connections, as it is now doing on some, I don't suppose it matters too much.
