Unusual BTW speed test results.


[link to this post]
 
Hi all,

Noticed a slight buffering issue so conducted a BT wholesale BB speed check here:

http://speedtest.btwholesale.com/

Im on around 70Mbps from Plusnet, however, my download speed test came back and over 300!

I did a quick Speedtest.net check and that seems ok as it comes back at 69Mb.

Anyone else notice this?

Working fine for me ... reporting 76.75, 76.92 down when I have a 79.99 sync.


Max achievable is shown as 77.35, so not too far off, and I have a couple of devices running that I do not take off-line

And for the Further Diagnostics I put in the required information for FTTP that it asks, then select the address it presents me where I then get told the following >> here <<

I have reported it as bug / issue to BT, not too sure if the "No Fibre to the Premises (FTTP) services have been found at this address." issue is linked to the issue we have on our account which BT's Offline Team are also looking into.

But I would say the BT Wholesale PerformanceTester is broken.

*** Update ***
Seems I cannot email any address at BT.COM frown
No matter who I email all I get back is the following:

Final-Recipient: rfc822; btwholesale.direct@bt.com
Original-Recipient: rfc822;btwholesale.direct@bt.com
Action: failed
Status: 5.5.0
Remote-MTA: dns; smtpb1.bt.com
Diagnostic-Code: smtp; 550 5.5.0 550 5.7.1 Requested action not taken: message
    refused

Its strange, our mail server is not blacklisted and has valid SPF and DMARC records

LOL, speaking to BT now, they seem confused, but think it might be Yahoo at fault.

I've been using Chrome for the past couple of months and the BTW speedtester has never given an accurate result with the download figures varying between 300- 500Mbps on an 80/20 package!

Your 1.8Gbps download certainly gave me a giggle smile

I know right, I even said to BT, I wish I got that speed, they just laughed.
