      I might not have read the small print but it doesn't say it's limited to BT only, are aquiss look to be recommending it for potential customers?

      heck your Broadband Performance with BT Speed Checker

      Article
      This article provides information on using BT's Speed Tester service to determine the speed of an ADSL connection between your premises/home and the BT core network.


      Information on the BT Speed checker:

      The BT Speed Tester provides an indication of the speed of an ADSL connection directly to BT's network - prior to your connection reaching the Aquiss network. This is useful when speed problems occur as it helps determine where problems are likely to be.

      Please Note: Speed tests such as the BT Speed checker do not always provide accurate speed results. For this reason, any results obtained should only be used as a guide. Speed Tests performed on Apple Mac and Linux operating systems can frequently be incorrect.


      Accessing the BT Speed Tester:

      In a web browser, visit Test Result or use the IP address of Test Result



      Check your Broadband Performance with BT Speed Checker

      That's the point, Sky have their own network, in the form of LLU so only Sky Connect would meet that condition.

      Re: Bt Updated Speed Tester

      If you are on Base, there is probably little chance of getting any higher speeds. You would need to upgrade to Mid or whatever it is called nowadays.
