Problem with the speed test page

I seem to be having problems with the speed test page. I've tried it in two different browsers and a lot of the time it's saying it downloaded 0kb in 0 seconds. Other times it gives me download speeds which are clearly WAY too fast. For example...

These are old tests before and after the upgrade to 2Mb:

17-09-2003 16:08:06 443.3
28-03-2005 09:02:40 457.9
01-10-2005 11:05:00 1854.8

Compared to these two I ran yesterday:

Problem with the speed test page

I had problems with PN's speedtest in the past and gave up - can't remember what I had to switch off (probably Norton's Script Blocking?)

Try the RASP tester which I - and others on this forum - have found pretty reliable.
You could also try Dan Elwell's Speedtest - worth paying the once-only registration to preserve results if you have a long-term problem.

Are you suffering from 'MaxDSL syndrome' ?

What is "MaxDSL Syndrome"?

The switchback ride so many people have experienced when switched to MaxDSL resulting in long periods of very slow download speeds - see for instance this thread
