Speed test unavailable

[For Information]

Access to the Bandwidth Speed Test facility seems to be 'borked' at the moment?

I can get to the speed test page, but pressing the 'Start Speed Test' button brings up an alternative "My Account" page? From there you can select 'Connection Settings' and get on the magic roundabout!

I've raised a ticket.

And replicated here too.

I wonder if there's a problem with the portal server's clock? I know that might sound a random link with the speed tests, but I keep getting randomly logged out when browsing this forum today, and I wonder if the speed tester relies on something time based (to do it's calculations for starters) and because the clock could be wrong, it's unable to do the test?

The speedtest seems to be fixed now? I've not seen the random disconnects, but access to the portal pages is very slow - many have to be refreshed to get access. Other sites and downloads - even Microsoft patches! - appears to be OK.

I also was randomly logged out about an hour ago (while the MS patches were coming down happily!), but my speedtest is OK.

Speedtest seems fine now but I am also being randomly logged out of the portal. I'd put it down to me losing track of time due to being ill, not the server losing track of time.
I'm also glad I'm no madder than I knew I was already! Cheers for the confirmation Smiley
