I assume you are in Milton Keynes Conor? tongue

Are you on the MK exchange (Bletchley)?

Knowing how it works is completely different to understanding how it works.

I am yes. Engineers (3 of Them!) just left as they had to do a lift and shift and it has taken about 2 and a half hours to complete!

1st speed test (TBB)
My Broadband Speed Test

did another

Why the difference?

Not that I am complaining. 26 is great.

Looking good.

PLusnet trial? And 40/2 product I hope, not 40/10.

Because the higher your line runs at, the more likely you are to reach a bottleneck somewhere else in the internet.

For most checkers, there is nothing mystical about them; they are not in a magic segment of the internet that cannot be overloaded by anything else - and they still have some limitations. When the biggest bottleneck in a connection is the user's own line at 8Mb or less, it is just that the other limitations don't often come into play.

If you have a BT-supplied connection, then the BT checker might be better because it can be routed entirely within BT's network. This would remove any ISP-based or Internet-based bottlenecks, but you may still suffer from bottlenecks within BT's network.

On balance, with faster speeds, the speed checkers become less useful at measuring your absolute top-end speed.

That would be a strange combination - I thought the PlusNet trials were all 40/10.

In which case he has a serious upload problem, or has been supplied the wrong service by Openreach.
