speed test weirdness

anyone having trouble with the speed test tonight as mine says I'm running at 0,so i notice the bit about turning the Norton firewall off and try again and it jumped to off the scale to over 196000 kbps.Is this just with having norton in.

speed test weirdness

The PlusNet speedtest can be erratic at times and report 0 and high numbers. No real cause has ever been found why this happens. Normally you can repeat the test a bit later and you get sensible results.

Make sure the test is not using https:// as the URL (remove the s and try again) as that can cauese wild fluctuations.

Norton based firewalls and some others are known to conflict with the PN speedtest hence to recommendation to disable them if the test is not working.
