Is Plusnets speed test borked

Plusnets speed test:
http://www.mybroadbandspeed.co.uk/
The above site shows my download speed as only 6mbps.
Whereas other speed test site are giving me the more realistic speed of 21mbps.

It has been for some time and at one point carried an advisory notice.
This has subsequently been removed.
I seem to recall someone saying the hardware it runs on is not up to the job.

That's another thing, it never shows a history for me.

The images don't seem to work in this forum for some reason but it certainly is well borked.

What's the point in warning, to be honest. The results are still going to be pants and would only waste someone's time trying to establish their true speed. Better solution would be to take the whole thing down temporarily with a message directing users to some trusted speed test sites, like http://www.speedtest.net/ or http://www.thinkbroadband.com/speedtest.html
