After a bit of speed testing from people


[link to this post]
 
http://labs.thinkbroadband.com/speedtest/ssltest.html

A new version of the speed test and would like to get a wider sample of devices, speeds and computers running it and thus be able to compare the normal versus the SSL based testing.

Yeap can see that two tests http://tbb.st/1441643778314923555 and http://tbb.st/1441643991551874355 both on http.

Not sure why the second did not run, when the first finished did you see the second test swap into the position of the first one? Its not a logic fault per se as its working for others with the same ISP and same browser.

It may be the mixed mode is being blocked by some settings you have, i.e. running a HTTPS embed on a HTTP page.

As the speed tests are NOT linked to your logged in profile they will always appear as someone else's result for now.

Did a couple of tests with no issues.

I can't get more than 3Meg from the connection as a faster sync rate causes instability.

It ran OK for me, but can't seem to work out how to post a link to it.

On BT FTTC, hardwired in to an iMac.

I've just run it twice (for good measure) with sensible results, no significant impact of SSL. Using Firefox.

Just ran sensibly for me from Chrome (Windows 10 laptop with wired connection) and gave the results I would expect.
The results page did say I was viewing someone else's results, but they looked exactly like mine.

Similar results on Firefox.

Moved from PlusNet back to BT. Both gave decent service.
