We have put together a short survey to capture your feedback in terms of what BT can do when you experience home Wi-Fi issues. We would appreciate it if you could take a couple of minutes to complete a short survey. Read more from here, Fix my home Wi-Fi
I have just run the BTW speed test and the appearance is unusual. Has anyone else seen this ?
Yes I have got a similar problem. The test is not working properly
I got these
The test was done with a wired connection . Both Ookla and Speed of me had the expected 51-53 down and 8.9-9.3 up.
There has to be a fault with the tester as the further diagnostics clearly shows a completely different upload speed. Also when running the test there is no smooth progression of the bar showing the completion of the download/ upload testing - it crawls along to the halfway point when doing the download and then jumps to the upload bar. I even had a 0.00 download speed reported.
I used Edge but the same thing happens with Chrome with similar results.
Still the same for me as the picture I posted. The format of the further diagnostics are as they have always been.
I find it hard to believe that my upload speed has dropped to 0.50Mbps. The FD says 3.07Mbps, which also way below my norm of ~5.2Mbps, see below. Edit For some reason the picture has been posted above
If these new figures are to be believed then I think I may have a problem.
so it is not the btspeedtester appearance but the actual results that are the problem - title is misleading
Thanks for your post.
My broadband is working well but I have exactly the same symptoms as you with the new BT speed tester.
Have tried a few other online speed checkers which all gave consistent results as follows
ping 17ms, download 71mb/s, upload 19 mb/s
BT Speed Tester
ping 81ms, download 65mb/s, upload 1.4mb/s
Think they should have stayed with the old version
Yes. It has been dysfunctional all day, on all browsers. Download is, eventually, reported at around the expected value, but upload varies from 0.0 to around 0.05.
Other speedtesters such as "SpeedofMe" and "Speedtest.net" give consistent and "normal" results.
The BT Speedtester has tended to be erratic at times, (and browser sensitive), over the years, sadly.
The stupid thing is still not working properly for me. The download is still below normal and upload <1 but is now 8.19 when running the further diagnostics - it was 7.17 everytime I ran it yesterday. I currently have a connection time of 60 days and the max download reported has been 48 but this is what my order confirmation 31 May shows
I know that it is the tester which is wrong but the speed is now apparently below the minimum guaranteed.
Another thing I have noticed is that CCleaner shows there to be more files and double the total file size to be cleared since this problem started - this is only for opening edge and running the first part of the test not the further diagnostics.
I appreciate the Mods don't have any say in that this is the official speed test but can they at least report the fault in the hope that something gets done.
