Bt's speed tester

Hi All

         Just noticed BT speed tester has changed a little bit and it runs so much faster now a bit off an improvement if you ask me.

Re: Bt's speed tester

I just posted a thread about the noticeable changes, I ran tests across three different lines and they all came back with the same new page you see, but the additional tests were different.

Re: Bt's speed tester

Yes it does run a lot faster now, But I don't understand when it tell's me I've got additional services on my line and when I click continue it tells me I've got BT Vision, well I wish someone had told me this before as to my knowledge I've never had or used or in fact paid for BT Vision, so still a little bit of work needed on it.

Then I ran the other test which is just a QOS, again it ran real fast so happy with the improvments.

Nige32,

As stated yes it's now a lot faster but I don't see the point of the second test what you call a QOS, your result is exactly the same as my. lol

Re: Bt's speed tester

Hi

    I think the second test QOS (quality of service) was to check the quality off the line for bt vision to guarantee you had more than a 2 meg service. 

 Not sure that really applies to a FTTC line.

Re: Bt's speed tester

Could be as it say's something about BT vision on the bottom of the result.

Re: Bt's speed tester

Anyone getting this message at the top of the main page of the BT Speedtester site:

 

HTTP Status 404 - /PerformanceTester/applet/progressbar/progressbar.html

 

And if so it is normal!?!

 

Also, I can't seem to run a test as it keeps saying Test Error - The system is currently busy.

 

Teething problems I hope.................................
