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 Clients are not going to be impressed if you are also out-of-date.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.
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.
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
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.
I would like congratulate Broadband Choices for allowing me use the tester to investigate whether i really am getting the upload and Download speed that my provider has agreed to in the Contract.
Keep up the good work helping us to get these companies to give us the speeds we are overpaying for.
This is a great speed checker for your broadband, & I must say, its very accurate. I would recommend this company to anyone, as they have some great deals on, if you are thinking of changing your supplier. I recently used this company for myself & for my father also, & I nearly halved my fathers telephone bill, he's very happy. I also used it for myself & I got a lot better deal from Plusnet & by far faster broadband also. Great company & very reliable. I've told my friends about it, so come on everybody, get yourselves a better deal & save money into the bargain.
For the last few days your Speed Tester has become invaluable. For example today alone I have gone from 18mbps this morning to 0.7mbps with a few cut outs just now. This has only started happening recently and is driving me mad especially when I have 5 bars and the message of excellent signal strength!! At least I can keep a record thanks to you. Tomorrow I change provider so wish me luck. I will be back to use it again.

That is truly worthwhile especially when somebody says you can have upto 14 what
I wanted to find out what performance I am currently geting because I am ni the process of changing (forced by Orange withdrawing the package I had signed uo to with a second line).
I hope (and anticipate based upon what i HAVE BEEN TOLD THAT MY PERFORMANCE SHOULD IMPROVE.
Grab the download its great easy to use, when you got slow internet it will let you know if you provider is slowin you down tho its supposed to be unlimited, only thing wrong with it you only get 30days which is a pity as its been easy lettin me no when to phone talktalk an give em a talkin too
I regularly use another site to test download performance and am also part of an EU testing panel and the results from this site were well down on what other sites report. (including one taken immediately after this sites test). This may be down to the server response time. I usually get a 10 to 11 ms response this tests server was 116 ms.
