broadband map


[link to this post]
 
Could one of you folk kindly remind me of the web address to get a map of what speeds blokes are achieving locally (regardless of ISP).

it's a facility I've used in the past but have now stupidly forgotten how I got to it.

Thanks!

Or click "Main Site" from the menu at the top, then "Broadband Maps" from the box of links on the left.

The maps dont seem to be able to list resellers .
Looking at my locality the speeds I obtain ( both from my old ISP ADSL24 and my new ISP Vivaciti ) are way above those shown on the map

If you click on one of the boxes it will expand to show the range of speeds for each ISP.

On another topic. It is a shame that only ADSL and VM are listed on TB maps. What about Fixed Wireless ISP's and mobile broadband?

That's one for the team, not a lowly mod tongue

I've no idea of any problems with or plans for that, try a query in TTTS.

I checked mine and I am the slowest of the slow and oddly enough those in the fast lane are both AOL

My technical knowledge isn't really good enough to start giving advice, but if you think you should be getting better speeds than you are then I'd suggest you start a new thread in this forum, giving at least the results of a BT speedtest (assuming you're not on LLU) and your router stats.

If your speed can be improved, there are plenty of people who can tell you how to go about it.
