IP Profile

Why doesn't the http://speedtester.bt.com/ website not show the IP profiles any more?

How do I go about finding out my IP profile for my FTTC line?

Tomís BRAS checker http://windows.mouselike.org/be/?DoAction=BrasChecker which isnít a speedtest but gives profile.

Also http://mcslhr.visualware.com/myspeed/myspeed_line_ca... often gives more reliable estimate of upload speed than other testers (the BT tester is particularly bad at upload speed test).

Splitting the test between real speed and profile this way is a little less convenient, but more than outweighed by the inconsistencies of the BT test (sometimes no answer, sometimes wrong answer).

It does if you use the diagnostics button, not the beta.
Or you can use this http://windows.mouselike.org/be/?DoAction=BrasChecker

When I click the diagnostic button it just tells me the download and upload speed, no information about IP profile. Why did BT take this information away!?! Grr

Just one of the many idiosyncracies of the BT tester. It may run and give profile (it usually does for me). It may run and not give profile, even on the diagnostics test (sometimes for me). It may hang at 96% (probably a Java problem). It may hang at 100% (because it feels like it). I have heard it may even complete and give you the correct upload speed (it never ever has for me).

The wholesale tester is better, but still a little inconsistent, and still gives low upload speeds (but not as low as retail tester).

Yes, you're right - it could be failing, but he didn't mention it.
