      Nice and pleasing to the eye.

      I like the table with the average downloads.

      Only one gripe, after selecting my package the screen displays a table, You state: Your package but instead on stating the download speeds I got you state the average of the package, which is also displayed further down the screen.

      I know my stats are up the top of the page in a single line of text but to anyone who does not have that eagle-eye they may assume that your package is their stats.

      Have I now confused the world.

      As soon as the test finished a popup came up with that I am on sky etc.

      "We have detected that your ISP is Sky. Your download speed is 0Kbps. Your upload speed is 303Kbps."

      The wrong download speed

      Hi

      Would you mind testing again when you get chance? And let us know if still the same.

      We have detected that your ISP is Sky. Your download speed is 0Kbps. Your upload speed is 246Kbps.

      Unfortunately the same.

      Weird, as it is exactly the same as the old Speedtester, except in a different location, but with added functionality.

      Can you please try the old one for us?

      Not a problem, all part of the Beta Test experience.

      What about having (in your fancy tables):

      Your package (same headings but having the ACTUAL download speed and upload speed that has been recorded.

      And then having the table below headed:

      Average Download statistics for INSERT NAME OF PACKAGE: (rather than your package - again so it does not confuse people)

      And then having another table:

      Average download speed of UK ISPs:

      Re: New Beta Speedtester Page

      The test says that i am on the Mid package, but i am on the Max package plus it says that my download speed is only 10M hen its not.

      The speed tester does not reflect my actual download capacity, and can i go on 24M if it is possible, please, please, :- ))
