Speedtest.net

Is rubbish.

Three different servers: best, Manchester; auto, based on ping, Coventry; and nearest, Derby. All done within a couple of minutes of each other.

Ohhh, I'm not showing off, honestly! lol

Seriously, the faster the speeds, the less reliable the results. It's a poor resource, given that so many seem to regard it as the benchmark.

If you got marks on your bench, shows you have done some work and not skived off, so I was told by my old boss many years ago lol

So I used to get some oil and grease and make new marks on the bench lol

Seriously though - again, he tried desperately Wink - look at the discrepancies between those results. Joke. And people keep invoking that sort of rubbish when they moan about their broadband performance.

I have to agree with you there tbh.

No speed test can be 100& accurate every time they are run however they they do usualy give a very good reference to the current snapshot at that moment in time.

You may be able to word it better than I but I hope you and others get the gist.

Not at all, you have said it perfectly. The keyword is "snapshot."

And if you find that your snapshots are generally consistent, as they are with the TT speed checker to be fair, then you give them a bit of credence.

The opposite, of course, makes you regard the results as suspect.

YepSmile Although the F+ probably relates to the fact that the result is slower than 81% of the country rather than the actual quality of the connection.
