I've just received my BT Accelerator and, as advised, tried www.speedtester.com so that I could see the speed change produced by the Accelerator. I have used speedtester before with no problems but now, after I have provided my phone number, I am being asked for "Additional Validation" of User Name and Domain Name. No matter what I reply I receive "Test Error" and the process fails.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks for such a prompt response. Just tried again. When prompted I put bthomehub for User Name and btbroadband.com for Domain Name. Everything worked fine. Still confused as to why I had to supply this info, as I didn't have to before, but happy that I have a solution.
