Brand New Speedtester : Coming Soon!

Brand New Speedtester : Coming Soon!

OK. So we know the speedtester on the Portal is a little... erm... dated! Time for a new, shiny, replacement we think. The current solution wasn't really designed for anything above 512k speeds - and is affected by a number of newer Internet Security software programs and firewalls.

So, we've purchased and are currently in the process of setting up a new Speedtester based on Ookla (www.ookla.com) - the people behind Speedtest.net and the BBMax Speedtest.

Cue Prototype...

(click for larger version) Hardware is currently on order that we plan to locate in London. This means that results won't be affected by any congestion on the Sheffield > London link. The tester will sit on it's own resilient platform and we'll also be opening it up for public use too - hopefully! Phase I of this project should launch within the next month or so, at : www.mybroadbandspeed.co.uk More soon...

The new speedtester is completely useless as far as I am concerned because it requires the latest version of Adobe Flash which isn't available for my platform. Even BT's performance monitor now uses incompatible javascript. The old one worked fine. Why has it been changed? You don't need to make life difficult for users so why do it?
