Re: www.mybroadbandspeed.co.uk fixed?


[re: MrSaffron] [link to this post]
 
This is actually quite interesting, as I also did a TBB speed test and if I remember it correctly I had about 73 Mbps at TBB x1 download area and about 43 Mbps at Burst HTTP x 6 area. The other two also had 73 and 43 but I am not sure which way around.

So would my current speed be based on the info I have provided, 73Mbps? Also, does the burst x 6 speed need to be equal to the x 1 speed? Many thanks.

Just to clarify - are you testing wired or wireless? Wireless is always unreliable, and at FTTC speeds can really mess things.

My broadband basic info/help site - www.robertos.me.uk | Domains,website and mail hosting - Tsohost.
Connection - Plusnet UnLim Fibre (FTTC). Sync ~ 59.4/14.4Mbps @ 600m. - BQM

MyBroadbandSpeed checker has been working fine for me but as of this morning (13/12/13) it appears to be giving incorrect Download speed results for some reason. Am seeing some 60meg difference in download speeds compared to other testers this morning.

The speedtest is having the warning put back on as it shouldn't have been removed originally. This test will give incorrect errors if it's used by too many people at once.
