I can't use My Broadband Speed as it sometimes give impossibly high results. E.g. I just got a download speed of 28661 kbps but I sync at 9500 kbps (See attachment, taken today at 19:38).

I expect they're fixing my 'blips'.
That must be what it is.

Re: Where has the plusnet bandwith test gone

Who is in charge of the Plusnet app on ipod / iphone, as I say the status and tweets are not updating?  Ashley Williams is quoted as the author.  Smiley
or should I start a new thread Huh

Hi Peter,
I'll do some testing here and give Ashley a shout....
Edit: Installed the app and the last status post is this one so I can't replicate the problem you're reporting Huh Perhaps worth an uninstall/reinstall?

Re: Where has the plusnet bandwith test gone

I've reloaded the app and everything is working now! Why does that happen?

No idea, I've let Ashley know regardless in case it's something that gets reported by anybody else.

Re: Where has the plusnet bandwith test gone

Just checked my iPhone Plusnet app and same problem...last status showing was in march.
Removed and reloaded the app and all's well now.

Re: Where has the plusnet bandwith test gone

Uninstalling the app and reinstalling the App does fix this issue however a bug fix is on it's way to the AppStore today which should prevent this from occurring.

MyBroadbandSpeed.co.uk Speed test page

Do we know if it has vanished for ever or are they having a day or two of rest?
Who funds them as I can't remember seeing any advertising on there?
Regards, Bob.

Re: Where has the plusnet bandwith test gone

I don't know if anyone has mentioned but speedtest.net is also a great bandwidth test

Re: Where has the plusnet bandwith test gone

If you are going to use speedtest.net why not add your test to the Plusnet Community speedwave?
