I can't believe even BT would break it on the most common browser around!!

Gotta be FTTC related... but I've no way of checking that.
Could we not ping or tracert that cabinet - I you have an IP for it, we could?

Morning Bill. I find that the BT Speedtest will run in any of the browsers I have tried it with, but the initial page load just doesn't seem to go the whole way, but I still get to pick connection and put in my line number. It then goes on to start its check and gives me my downstream speed profile before I get an error. After that I reload the page and it works fine - for whatever reason confused

Hi Tom smile

I've pretty much always had problems with the BT tester on different browsers, but usually more clear-cut, it either runs without a hiccup or won't run at all!

Which browser works can be a bit of a moveable feast, it depends which bit they broke with the most recent modification.

I've seen a report that it's up to one of its old tricks again- on ADSL2+ it's returning a profile higher than the sync speed crazy

Sorry, but I've tried this several time this week with various Mac's, and get the standard error

Test Error
The Performance Tester is currently unable to run a speed test for your broadband connection. Please try again shortly, however if this problem persists, raise the issue with your service provider.

Even tried a Windows 7 with IE 9 in an attempt to check my IP Profile.
