Suggestion - Allow My Broadband Speed to carry out download check only

I find that I rarely, if ever, want to carry out an upload speed check.
However, after completing the download speed test, I have to wait for the unwanted upload speed test to run through, if I want my download speed test to appear in the history.
Would it be easy to allow an alternative test, where only the download test is called?

Hi JohnJ,
We use a third party company for the speed tester so we're not able to really make any changes to it I'm afraid. However that's a consideration I'm sure we'd like to bear in mind if we decide to change to another speed tester or develop our own.

Hi Adam
My understanding is that the Ookla Speed Test functionality allows for several configurable parameters, including one where the upload test can be disabled, as detailed here.

Cheers JohnJ,
I must admit I wasn't aware that we could configure the Ookla scripting to such a degree. Suggestion definitely taken on board and I will raise this.
