Re: BT Wholesale Beta Speed tester

Download speed (for me) apprears about right (and more accurate that BT Speedtest) the upload appears (for me) a tad slow and ping is way off the scale (for me)

Re: BT Wholesale Beta Speed tester

Not sure how accurate this speed test is but here's my result.

Ping 0.00Ms thinks that something may be amiss.

sky twitter account a customer ask why sky go streams are worst then sd and yet bt and eurosports apps stream in hd. Reply from mod, oh thats easy the files for hd are some huge that sky go can't play them and no app can stream hd due to this and so when they say they are they're really sd streams, if there was any way around this we would have done it now.

Download speeds appear to be accurate for me (70.2Mbps on a profile of 72.03). Upload speeds are currently slightly on the low side (15.3, should be about 16.5) and pings are very much too high (60ms, should be 9-12 ms).  They are slowly getting there, veeeerrry slowwwwwwly!

 

Speedtest.net Manchester server is overall still more accurate for me though, than the upgraded BT beta speedtester. The speedtest.net ping is confirmed by bbc.co.uk (12ms).

 

Some of the other speedtest.net servers are rubbish though so beware, speedtesters who get poor results may be on one of them and should try half a dozen other nearby ones too.
