Re: Where has the plusnet bandwith test gone

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 19:3Cool.
Speedtest.net used to do the same but has now been updated to give realistic results (it now ignores the sudden blips that  My Broadband Speed records as actual download speeds).
Thinkbroadband always gives very consistent results and is the best in my opinion.
BT speedtester not for those on LLU.

Mikko, thats normally caused by security software, might be worth poking round the forums to see several solutions dependant on what package you have Smiley

Re: Speed faults - information needed to help diagnosis

Is there a problem with the speed tester on the Plusnet website as I have not been able to use it since yesterday morning?

Yes it is, and if I'm honest it's likely to be down for a while because we're going to need to go down to London and bring the boxes back to Sheffield for some TLC.

Subject: Access to www.mybroadbandspeed.co.uk (67839) - UPDATE
This is an update to this afternoon's post about the problems accessing the broadband speed tester we host at www.mybroadbandspeed.co.uk.
We are arranging collection of the affected servers from one of our London data centres so that the necessary remedial work can be carried about before access to the service can be restored.
Access to the speed tester will remain disabled until we've had the opportunity to carry out this work.
Please accept our apologies for the continued inconvenience.
Kind regards,

Check the Service Status
It will have "Subject: Access to www.mybroadbandspeed.co.uk (67839) - RESOLVED" when the necessary work has been completed, and the service is back online.
