Speed dropping

My speeds have been up and down for the last month now, they normally about 64/19 but as you can see they have dropped abit.

Re: Speed dropping

The BT wholesale speed tester has been widely criticised for inaccurate results in recent times.

Re: Speed dropping

Gadalph is off on his tours for most if not all of this month, so don’t expect a response from him for a while.

Re: Speed dropping

I just used IE for btwholesale and it show the correct speeds, but when i use chrome 64 it shows download of upto 600meg... so its looking like the latest chrome could be to blame.

Re: Speed dropping

most likely be because BT still use a flash based test Undecided
