Just a quick question regarding the above, I have found that if I repeat the test immediatly after running it the first time I get a noticeably higher download speed.
Is there a reason for this? Which speed reading should I work off? the first (lower) reading, or the second (higher) reading?
the speed decrease could be caused by say your Java/Flash plugins. the latter would still be an accurate result.
That said, remember that the BT Speedtester is inside the WAN, for a more true internet speed, you may also want to try sites likes speedtest.net or thinkbroadband.com
Pre-warning though, expect slower speeds!
In the past I have seen AV/Security software interfering with speed tests. What's the difference in speed between the two tests?
Just done two tests back to back :-
1) D/L 50.02
2) D/L 75.32
What do you think?
