      Re: Speed Checker Now Live

      Are the results by isp an average of all the tests or the highest individual test ? If its the latter then sky should be at the top next time they are updated - he he. Suspect it may be the average tho ?

      ps - seems to be pretty accurate now - thanks to nr giving up his friday night and a few others no doubt

      The results are an average per ISP.

      Don't forget the 10 minute blockage though. If more than one test is recorded in 10 mins, it is only the first one that is recorded.

      The Sky tests should be the most accurate, average wise, as Sky have had the largest number of tests by a mile.

      LOL

      Thats cheating. To get Sky to the top now, would need 100s of high download tests, to bring the average figure up. Don't forget the 10 minute rule though.

      A security audit was just run to check wether results could be manipulated, turns out they can ...

      Its being fixed now. We wouldn't want any PR people changing the stats ... still, Sky could add those to the company targets ... by 2250 everyone can have that much bandwidth!
