Postcode shows no cabinet, so will be ADSL2+ and speed test looks good for ADSL2+

On cable majority can order it appears, so ball is in Virgin Media court there, maybe this property was a latter addition or in original roll-out owner refused install of the final cable run.

Unfortunately the advice you have given isn't exactly clear cut.

I have an old laptop but it is still quick at performing certain video rendering, etc as it has a separate graphics chip and memory and a relatively fast CPU. What it does have is a slow WIFI chip and therefore shows as slow speed test.

Testing using ethernet or using a 5GHz tablet/phone produces good speeds.

VM are bad in certain areas if you are a gamer due to latency.

Was Eclipse Home Option 1, VM 2Mb & O2 Standard
Utility Warehouse (up to 16mbps) via Talk Talk, upgraded to fibre 40/10

this allspeedtest seems dodgy. Based on its IP address it seems to be hosted in the US, which is of very little use for UK based users. But it contains links that are supposed to reference Asian speed testers (I've not followed those links though as I don't trust them)
I would recommend readers stick to the thinkbroadband speed test
kenneth889, are you a prospective spammer or a phisher?

Not the first attempt at pushing that speedtest. A link to the same site was posted on 09/01/21 which has been removed by the mods.
