The speed tester lite doesn't give you your profile though, and that's what I usually want- I prefer the other speedtesters that are available tongue

It's a pity BT don't give a link that would just provide the up and down profiles and skip the speedtest... apart from anything else it would save a lot of bandwidth!

Very true. Even better if they hadn't locked their damn' modem down.

So it's not just IDNet... I wonder if there could be any connection with this, ie BT are messing about with the network for their multicasting service?


Same here on the Infinity business service, although it seems to be settling down.
No better here. Not heard anything from IDNet support either. Called them up and all I got was a woman who wanted to take my details so that they could call me back tomorrow. Not very impressive frown

I'm not sure but I doubt it. My connection became naff sometime between Monday and Tuesday evening. I mean it's all relative since it's still better than what I had but getting 30Mb/s when I have a profile of 76Mb/s is irritating frown

Content removed... having read it further, it seems I'm not supposed to re-distribute it blush

It referred to the outage at Faraday referred to in the El Reg article earlier.
