New BT Wholesale Performance Tester


[link to this post]
 
You can ran the test 3 times within an hour or every 10 minutes up to 3 times within the 60 minutes.

You also do not need java anymore as it can run by flash player.

http://speedtest.btwholesale.com/ click to begin test and also click further diagnostics to get ip profile rate

Thanks and looks good! Seems to be less temperamental than the older one and doesn't need a phone number to kick it off initially. I found the existing/old one only ever ran under IE and crashed out in other browsers (on several PCs) with Java exception errors.

Ran this three times and gives me 10.7 Mbps d/l which is a meg higher than TBB (on Java) gives currently but as usual generally agrees with Speedtest.net over the past few days although a bit higher - it's also higher than my current connection speed of 11,844 x 0.882 would suggest though?

Download Speed (Mbps) : 10.77
Upload speed (Mbps): 0.91
Ping (Latency) ms: 19.63

As mentioned, you can also get the current/old style results by carrying on from the initial test and running diagnostics through what looks much like the old interface - this needs a BT telephone number or Circuit ref. and runs the test again (first time it gave same results as above, second it came up with ' cannot test at this time' error - that part may only allow one test still per hour?)

Just run TBB again and showing 9.6Mbps - I'm running these tests on a laptop using Chrome and connected directly to the router with nothing else running on the laptop and the main LAN disconnected from the router so nothing interferes with the testing.

NB: just tried the TBB Flash tester and noticed that, as you can see the metering in real time, it hits 10.5 - 10.7 Mbps frequently but finished at 9.8Mbps. I believe the TBB one averages differently to Speedtest so wonder how the BT one approaches this? Anyone else get similar differing results?

Is that supposed to be a benefit ?

Could be if you are BT.. Just tested again alternately twice using the old JAVA one and then this Flash one

JAVA 9.84 Mbps
FLASH 10.99MB/s (for a connection rate of 11,844kbps currently!)
