I used the OOKLA speed tester for my broadband and it gave me:
Download - 10.01
Upload - 0.79
Then I used the speed tester on the http://www.connectingdevonandsomerset.co.uk/ website
which gave me:
Download - 6.28
Upload - 0.59
I am connected wirelessly, trying to connect my pc/router directly to my master socket is virtually impossible due to the socket's position.
So, why are the results so different?
Separately I am on an Exchange Only connection and I have been told that I will not get fibre for a
very long time yet 50 yards from my front door a new fibre box has been installed and according to
"Connecting Devon & Somerset" website fibre optic will be available for my address on May 6th 2015
yet according to the http://dslchecker.bt.com/
it is not available which is repeated every time I contact PlusNet.
Fixed! Go to the fix.

Hello there. Sometimes your throughput speed can vary depending on the speedtester, usually down to the website itself and how fast it responds to the request.
Testing over a wireless connection isn't 100% reliable too as wireless speeds can vary and fluctuate greatly.
If you would like to test your speed, I'd recommend using http://speedtest.btwholesale.com as that's our official one we use when raising faults, so we know it's reliable.
(Unless you're wanting to raise a fault, you can ignore the red guidelines, click the yes checkbox and then begin test)
Hope this helps
