High ping on your test results

At the same time as your speed test being inconsistent, compared with other speed test providers, your servers give a high ping reading. Up to 30ms in my case. The range of ping with speedtest.net and thinkbroadband is, in my case 9ms - 13ms. This may explain the inconsistency of your speed test. Do you need to get a contract with a better provider?

Your speed test gave me results between 80Mb and 122.6Mb. I am connected to the internet by ethernet cable, not WiFi. Speedtest.net and Thinkbroadband tests give me a consistent >126Mb 24/7. Even Uswitch give me >120Mb consistently.

This variation in your tester is unacceptable given that clients may make choices about their ISP based upon such results.

Also your drop menu giving me a choice of connection speeds does not include 'up to 120Mb', as provided by Virgin Media. You stop at 100Mb. Clients are not going to be impressed if you are also out-of-date.

Having spent so much on a TV ad campaign perhaps you should spend some cash on a decent speed test server and on keeping your site up-to-date.
Edit...........................9.3.14......................................
It looks like your server is due for an update again. For a few months your site kept up with advances in internet download speed. I even managed to get a full 120Mb out of your test. However, I just now tested my 152Mb Virgin Media connection. Results varied between 10Mb and 135Mb. Other speed testers like speedtest.net and Thinkbroadband give me a consistent result 160Mb and 156Mb respectively.

Hi Vince,
Thank you for your comments about our broadband speed tester, we do understand that are old speed tester had some limitations. We have now updated the speed tester and have launched a new one which hopefully you will find a lot more user friendly.
Many Thanks

Great tool for the job

Have only tried it the once so far, but it confirms what I believe my fluctuating download and upload speeds to be.

Does what is says on the tin: checked my broadband speed quickly and easily

Very good. No additional add-ins or software to download - just needed my postcode, ISP and paid-for speed and that was it. Very quick. Good service.

speedtester tweeting results goes to wrong page

speedtester works ok, but when tweeting results, the url link to the results takes you to a page not found and the not results page.

CLEARLY WELL DESIGNED AND A JOY TO USE.

I found this site via Ebay of all places. I highly recommend you guys try this site out. The speed tester is a sinch to use and pretty accurate by my reckoning.

I am Pleased with your results for my Broadband Provider.

Thank you for a simple and yet really effective way of letting me get results of my present broadband provider , which happens to be Virgin Media
and having done a simple test , I am pleased that the results are up to my expectations and therefore will not be changing provider in the immediate
future .....Well done Trust Pilot

Did you know how slow 'fast' is ?

Thanks to your speed check I've found that EE is giving a "Snail Pace" compared to the others. Due to this (although the cost is higher) my broadband will be getting changed (to Virgin if anyone is interested).

Thank you very, very much and I hope a lot of others find this test useful.

Keep up the good work helping us to get these companies to give us the speeds we are overpaying for.
