BT data


[link to this post]
 
Where does the data produced by the BT speedtester come from like is it a certain bit of the equipment in your local exchange or does it use data from the modem-router, and is it all accurate?

Tnx

It comes from a database of line lengths generated by paperwork into various databases.

If on a BT Wholesale ADSL/ADSL2+ service there is feedback onto the database from active running lines
