Probably the most random speedchecker at the moment.

I just took 2 tests immediatley following each other.

 

The first gave me a DL of 27mb and the second 37mb?!

 

Edit: Took a third which was 26mb?!

 

Is it the speedtesters that are inaccurate or can our broadband speeds really flucturate by so much over such a short time span?!

The download on that site wasn't magic. I done 10 tests in a row and never got above 45. www.speedtester.bbmax.co.uk gives 73.7 down and 11.5 up.

Just goes to show that different sites and servers will give differing results! I personally never test the speed unless something isn't working 🙂

I wish other people would agree! Would save lots of bother haha.

Seriously, if the internet is working for what you're doing, why be bothered what "number" it is!

That test certainly gives far more consistent results Webby.
