Downloading via web browser? Or via the Measure 1GB (Very Large Test File) option in tbbmeter?

I used the ttb icon which took me to the Broadband speed test, from there I clicked the link to download test file, that took me to that page which had the options of the size of downloads at various speeds, I chose the 1gb very large file to download. hope this helps, smile

What speed do normal speed testers say? I'm sure you know that "up to 20Mbps" might mean a 5Mbps connection. The label is meaningless.

The files went missing for a while, believe they are back now.

Getting less than 100k/sec downloading them from a 100mb line in work...is there issues with the files at the moment?
