BT Speed Test

Hi, I'm tried test my speed by BT speed checker, and i have problem with results.

First test - by BT number - 2,5

Second   - by adress - 10

Third      - by o2     - 6


Its possible i have to upgrade phone line? by BT number ive got BT total broadband result (2,5)

By my postcode and correct flat - faster BT total broadband result (10)


What will be my real speed when i JUST connect to any broadband?

Re: BT Speed Test

BT and most probable tests are more acurate by phone number though BT tend to understate what you will get

If any post helps tick the star box on the left
Just cause Im paranoid dont mean they are not out to get me

Re: BT Speed Test

BT should repair phone lines, but they won't upgrade a line unless you're willing to pay silly money. Basically, if it's good enough for voice calls, then BT Openreach consider that the line is fine. Broadband is a bonus.

All the estimates are just guesses, but one based on the phone number is more likely to be accurate.
