IP Profile 77.44 Mbps divide by 0.9679 = 80.008265

I thought the highest reported profile for 80/20 was 77.43 Mbps, from a sync speed of 79999.

I thought that as well. My best mate had that ip profile of 77.44 Mbps on BT Speedtest

In reply to a post by RobertoS:
The modem needs to be flashed by asbokid's unlocked firmware. I'm not sure whether a fully tested version is yet available since the Openreach update of theirs.

Many thanks. Might give that a go when I get 5mins to myself.
In reply to a post by RobertoS:
You can get a very close estimate of your downstream sync by running the BT Performance Test, (ignore the silly entries on the list of things to do first), then at the bottom of the results page click Further diagnostics. In the downstream results box you will see the IP Profile. Divide that by 0.9679.

I didn't know about the 0.9679 many thanks

Down 77.44 Mbps (aka 80 Mbps or there abouts)
Up 20 Mbps

Got fibre installed two days ago and am getting 43/18 at www.mybroadbandspeed.co.uk but 73/18 at www.speedtest.net. Safe to assume that PN's speed test is not working for me as it should? Exactly the same results over the last two days.

Thanks, I am not at home at the moment but will give it a try in the evening. Just wanted to make sure I knew exactly the speeds I was getting from Plusnet and if they are in line with the estimates, as I initially joined Plusnet on ADSL and for the first few hours after moving to fibre the speed was capped at the ADSL level until I called them and asked to amend my profile settings.

You do realise they are all the same test, just down to variations in power of server they are running on, and link capacity to that box...

Ookla can be tweaked to show different parameters, i.e. we see some reporting burst results and others averages depending on people have licensed the tester.
