FTTP BT Speedtester

Hi guys,
Could a couple of our FTTP customers give the BT speedtester a try please:
www.speedtester.bt.com
and let me know if it works. If it doesn't can you let me know where it fails (I'm suspecting the page when you put the phone number in).
Thanks,

Hi Dave,
For me it was as you suspected and it fails on the page where you put in your phone number.
It returns an error and to raise it with my ISP.
Thanks
Paul

Re: FTTP BT Speedtester

Thought so ta, looks like you need to enter the Service ID, I'll PM you your service ID if you could try that, would be appreciated.

Re: FTTP BT Speedtester

Using the Service ID worked fine.
Not sure if you want the actual results as I am assuming you are testing the tool and not the speeds.
Just shout otherwise.
Thanks

Re: FTTP BT Speedtester

Yeah just testing the tool out, thanks. Just means that I need to ensure that anyone that wants to run the speedtest on FTTP needs to know what their service ID is. I'll add this to my list. If anyone else wants to run it let me know and I'll PM you the service id. Thanks Paul, appreciated.

I'd be interested to use the BT tester and compare results with speedtest.net.  Can you PM me my Service ID, please?

Re: FTTP BT Speedtester

Dave,
The BT Speedtester seems to work OK (provided you use the Service ID - Thanks for supplying it)
The only disadvantage seems to be that you can only use it once per hour, so you can't do repeat tests to look at behaviour over short periods of time.
