Speed tests on fibre 900 Wired

Hi I was wondering what speed test is the most reliable struggling with ookla and Fast seem to show different speeds.   Speeds inconsistent on download and it fine on the upload. Using a Wi-fi 6 router.  Also with wireless have a combined 5GHz and 2.4 ghz login . Does having to Two Wi-fi logins help.

BT recommend using https://fast.com/  Speed tests should always be conducted with a wired connection.

@tomhumph97 The FTTP team always asked me to use fast.com using IE when I called them. ookla is a good choice. What are the speed ranges / differences? Having two distinct WiFi’s will help switching between the two assuming you join only one and is sometimes necessary for specific devices to get them connected.

I have tried ookla on wireless and wired and I get about 900 mbps 

and when  it tried  Fast.com  it down to about just over 500mbps.

@tomhumph97 I suspect your service is bang on, I wouldn’t be overly concerned 😀 with the difference in results. Enjoy.


You can also sign up for SamKnows if you want to monitor speeds etc. but you need to be selected for their program.

With Intel wireless adapters (and I presume other makes) in the advanced configuration you can choose to prefer to connect at 5GHz. Before I did this it would sometimes connect at 2.4GHz which would half my download speed (can't split channels on my SH2).

Yea it is a lot better and worthy upgrade from the SH2 with ASUS AX88U you can split channels and get higher speeds. Wired and wireless.  Thanks I will have a look at that.
