IP Profile

Why doesn't the http://speedtester.bt.com/ website not show the IP profiles any more?

How do I go about finding out my IP profile for my FTTC line?

Tomís BRAS checker http://windows.mouselike.org/be/?DoAction=BrasChecker which isnít a speedtest but gives profile.

Also http://mcslhr.visualware.com/myspeed/myspeed_line_ca... often gives more reliable estimate of upload speed than other testers (the BT tester is particularly bad at upload speed test).

Splitting the test between real speed and profile this way is a little less convenient, but more than outweighed by the inconsistencies of the BT test (sometimes no answer, sometimes wrong answer).

It does if you use the diagnostics button, not the beta.
Or you can use this http://windows.mouselike.org/be/?DoAction=BrasChecker

When I click the diagnostic button it just tells me the download and upload speed, no information about IP profile. Why did BT take this information away!?! Grr

Just one of the many idiosyncracies of the BT tester. It may run and give profile (it usually does for me). It may run and not give profile, even on the diagnostics test (sometimes for me). It may hang at 96% (probably a Java problem). It may hang at 100% (because it feels like it). I have heard it may even complete and give you the correct upload speed (it never ever has for me).

The wholesale tester is better, but still a little inconsistent, and still gives low upload speeds (but not as low as retail tester).

Yes, you're right - it could be failing, but he didn't mention it.

It seems that it is.
Warning
BT have changed their systems, this tool now has to actively submit information to BT to read the BRAS details.
This may cause problems if your internet provider needs to use BT Speed Tester results for diagnostics and fault reporting in the near future. If in doubt, do NOT run this tool.

Running this tool will also prevent you from running the BT Java based speed tester for a few hours.

That doesn't give the IP Profile unless you continue to the diagostics version afterwards. Which at this point in time is failing before showing the results, as is the one I normally use - in the OP.

On that latter one, the download runs fine, the upload runs its "running" bar but NetWorx" shows no upload, and it hangs once the bar reaches 100%

Doesn't change the fact you can use it to get the BRAS profile..

I'll check with Tom on the BE forum what the problems might be.

What he means by actively submit information to BT. If that means running a speedtest from his server, which then gets recorded on the BT Wholesale (or is it ?Openreach) system against my number, that could indeed confuse the ISP when they look at these records.

Running this tool will also prevent you from running the BT Java based speed tester for a few hours. I'm pretty sure it will prevent you from running the BT Java based speed tester for exactly the same length of time that running that tester itself does. It isn't actually the speedtesting that is limited, but the profile queries back to the profile system.

[re: RobertoS] [link to this post]
 
This is weird, before the BT speedtester used to give information on my profile and now everytime I run the test it only shows best effort test X mbps...upstream test X mbps, no information whatsoever about IP profile!??

When I run that test from the bethere website it says it cannot obtain the information from BT's systems??

How can I regain to view this information again?

Well using your link I just got
Download speedachieved during the test was - 50.62 Mbps
For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 12 Mbps-0 Mbps.
IP Profile for your line is - 55.64 Mbps
The graphic has zeros for the achievable speed, I'll grant you that.
