BTW Speedtester Accuracy?

A couple of weeks ago I had a fault on my line. Noisy and with repeated drop outs. The nice man from BTOR fixed it and I can now make phone calls and connect to the internet.

The only fly in the oinntment however is that the BTW speed testers (IP profile 8 approx) is showing download speeds in the region of 3 to 4 Mbs when previously I was getting 8. Naturally I have done every possible variation of connection and equipment to no avail.

Recently the Spedtester contains a warning that Flash  might slow Firefox. I don't recall seeing this before. Could that be part of the problem.

Sync Speed (Netgear DGN2200) is 9680/1027

My ticket is still open but I am not optimistic.

Any suggestion?!

Re: BTW Speedtester Accuracy?

Hi , this has been asked before for some reason Firefox gives odd readings on BTW test , after posting on Firefox forum it looks likely that flash is to blame .
One poster ask me to tell BT to move to html tester , yes as if they will listen

Re: BTW Speedtester Accuracy?

They recommend the BTW speed test as it stores your test results 👍
Even as I have Firefox as default browser I now use Edge only for the BTW test 😉
