Found an interesting thing regarding the BT Wholesale speed test at http://speedtest.btwholesale.com whilst trouble shooting slow speeds at peak times on my FTTC connection sync'ed at 80/20.
The BT speedtest is using multiple Http requests to test the download speed. Whilst the Thinkbroadband test was showing a single thread download test at around 11Mbps (mirroring what I was seeing downloading files), the BT Wholesale test was reporting around 50Mbps, almost exactly inline with Thinkbroadbands Http x6 test.
If I download a file it arrives at the speed of a single request, so in reality where I might be seeing 11Mbps download speeds (should be 74Mbps), testing on the BT Wholesale speed test site would show 50 or 60Mbps and so well above the threshold for reporting a problem. So is this a fair test for BT Wholesale to perform?
