What is the most accurate way to measure your connection speed, i tried numrous speed tests and they all report differently.
I've found that watching the Ethernet tab in Task Manager shows the best results.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Hi, thanks David.
BT WholeSale connection tester isnt a good test in my opinion, it uses flash, also the server is always overwhelmed too, I had FTTP 321Mbps/32Mbps - 6ms on a 100 mile away server, BT WS connection test it was always showing a wrong result "125Mbps/23Mbps - 27ms ping" I wouldn't recommend it at all, its far from accurate.
Just saying, thanks 🙂
Just out of curiosity, if you're set to Infinity 2 "up to 76Mbps" And you're close to the cabinet, very good range, do they allow enough head room for the full 76Mbps?
As i'm FTTP i can't show line statistics, Up to "300/30" Which we had (321Mbps/32Mbps <- Speed tests and converted Steam/Origin Rates confirmed this) You'd of thought been FTTP Infinity 2 you'd be on full 76Mbps Download i'm getting around 74Mbps/19.5Mbps the through-put on my Ethernet adapter shows 77Mbps. For three of us I could see Infinity 4 wasn't needed, so got it switched to a Infinity 2 profile.
Are you getting full 76Mbps/19Mbps when you're in the right ranges on vDSL2?
Not sure if i've said anything wrong about Cabinets as we came from ADSL-1, just what i've read in forums.

I have the head room and still can't get the rated "up to 76Mbps" Makes no sense or the speed tests aren't accurate, the through-put adapter reads 77Mbps. I will delete a large game of a PC and redownload it and report back with the converted configures just to make sure tomorrow.
By doing that you are not measuring the speed being supplied to you by BT Retail. The only way to find that out is to run the Further Diagnostics on BTWholesale's site.
By downloading a game from steam you are using servers and routers that BT have no control over.
