Okay, so concensus is that the BT speed tester is not working as it gives highly erratic results if any at all.
SO, just why do the MODS request you carry out a speed check using this tool?
Apart from the fact I have a failing Hub3 type'A', what is being gained by testing through a medium that is not capable of working correctly in the first place?
Oh it gives ME a headache....:)
I have been running the speed tester over the last few days and it seems to be working ok. ( for me at least)
here is one I just ran a few minutes ago.
Not to bad for a bank holiday result
It is very erratic for me. If it takes a long time between completing the download test and starting the upload test, it seems to mess up the download result. It works maybe 1 in 10 times.
Also, the profile started saying 38.71 now instead of 38.72....weird! It would be near impossible to just have the perfect connect speed fractionally under the max that would result in a genuine profile of 38.71!!
At least you know it's just the speedtester that is suffering from something! (lack of investment?) - when I saw those figures it was a duff gigabit port on my 3A.
Well, BT been here and gone again now. New Hub3 and guess what? It is Version 1A again. New modem version 2B again.
Speeds seem to have come up again so let's see what happens. Appears all he had on the van. Still waiting for the new modems.
