Speed test

Hi guys&girls&other Cheesy

Been having a few probs with speed going up and down, one min its all go go go, then its all slow slow slow ,

I have the 2 meg prem account, but as you see from my speed test it seems to be a lil bit over that at times, then its all stop.
I used the speed test and used the best config from a site called errrr, (lost the link Shockedops: ) it did improve the speed a lot, but whats with the test saying the speed I get is 52400.9 kbps for my 2 meg account and yet, on the chart it should be normaly ADSL 2000 1840 kbps for a 2 meg account

Its not a complaint as such,just a question from a num skull Smiley

Speed test

I asked a similar question earlier as per below...

Having recently been informed of speed up grade I decided to check my speed. I've just checked 4 times each alternatively on Plusnet and ADS Guide speed testers.

Plusnet averages around 960Kbps; ADSL Guide averages around 1870Kbps

Who do I believe?


I was advised to try the BT speed test. I have done and find that averages around 1600Kbps. (incidently BT suggest that anything between 400 and 2000 as acceptable!)

I think you just take your pick :?

Speed test


The speed test has completed on test server speedtester1.nat.bt.com for user *********** and you have downloaded a 1.7Mb file at a speed of

1877 kilo bits per second (Kbps), your service bandwidth will have been quoted to you in kilo bits per second.

Your IP address is **********, your browser is reported as being Mozilla 5.0 and is running on Windows XP.

BT would regard the speed ranges shown below as normal service:

For 250kbps End Users speeds between 50 - 250kbps.
For 500kbps End Users speeds between 100 - 500kbps.
For 1000kbps End Users speeds between 200 - 1000kbps.
For 2000kbps End Users speeds between 400 - 2000kbps.


Well looks like I can use my smug grin :lol:

As is stated, you take your pick, depends on if your an optimist or pesimist I would think Smiley
There again it may have to do with how much valium you take :lol:
