speedtester.bt.com

I haven't used speedtester.bt.com for a couple of months or so.

All this week, all I get is that the URL no longer exists.

Anyone else having the same problem. ??

Hi Matt.

Yep, I do also use that tester, but you don't get a profile with it.

I'm on fibre myself, but I what to test my daughters line, & to see her lines profile.

You should do, on the further diagnostics after the basic test?

Sorry Matt, my mistake.
I didn't try that. It goes on & runs what looks like the old test, & gives the profile smile

It doesn't actually run the old test, it's much quicker than that.

Maybe I should have said, that it displays the results like the old tester.

Yep, it is faster, but I don't like the upload results. All other sites give much higher upload speeds, than that test.

I also get about 2Mbps upload less on that test. Download really close to real.

It's interesting that, if you run the bt speedtest, tbb, and speedtest.net in quick succession (how sad is that?) you can get three totally different results which I don't believe can be just the result of a couple of minutes time delay.

Why is that? Which do you believe?
