Hi ive recently been getting odd results in internet speedtests , BT,s speedtester site giving much higher results than others. After noticing this i started using the download files on this site to test my actual download speeds. Previously to this issue i have used this site before to download the 1GB test file and would get around 5 - 6.5 Mbps . This has now dropped to 1.8 , ive also noticed issues streaming movies in HD when there have been none previously.
Im with BT so have a modem connected to the phone line then a HH3 (I have fiber to cabinet) to eliminate the router ive connected directly to the modem via ethernet and the results are the same.
BT tell me all is well as my speedtest on their site shows a nice 55 - 65 down and 14.5 up however my actual download sppeds seem to tell adifferant story as does the speedtester on this site
there is nothing else connected to the router ive checked i cant check any line stats as the modem seems to be locked out
Could the issue be with our laptop? Is it BT?
Thanks for any help
ps previous tests using your site have yielded higher results it seems to be getting worse by the day
