Fast.com

Everyone here seems to recommend fast.com (as do the engineers that come out) but every time I do a test with them I get speeds of about 1.4 Gb which is impossible as:-

1) I only have a 900Mb service

2) The SH2 only has Gb ports 

3) The PC only has a Gb NI

Given the above can we believe the results from it?

Re: Fast.com

I've always found fast.com very sketchy to say the least. I've just tested over 5G and it showed double the speed that Ookla Speed test showed

Re: Fast.com

Hi @JonMace and thanks for posting.

I've used fast.com previously myself and got conflicting results. I would generally use Test your BT Broadband Speed | BT Help on a wired connection for the best results.

Cheers

Re: Fast.com

That test no longer works, it tells you to test on the My BT app

Re: Fast.com

Thanks for pointing that out @JonMace , I stand corrected.

I haven't used it in some time I must admit.

Cheers

Re: Fast.com

Just use https://www.speedtest.net/

It gives me accurate results, fast.com never has, its always more than my actual speed
