Speeds


[link to this post]
 
Have used the speed checker on here for a long time but getting a disparity between the scores here and the Ofcom speed test.
On M600 and hit 600 on the Ofcom site but top out at around 200 here?

Is that a bit of manipulation to allow full bandwidth to certain sites (like Ofcom)?

No. Speedtests are not a 100% reliable guide especially at higher speeds.

If full speed is reached via Ofcom's checker all is probably fine.

Building better networks, not just faster ones.
