      HHMM okay. Are you sure it's fixed. It gives my DL speed as 7.88Mb/s and my UL as 2.63Mb/s and that is supposed to be fibre speeds. My router (SR101) reports 39Mb/s and 9Mb/s and Speedtest gives a similar result. If the speed tester on here is accurate I think it's time I shouted at Sky. But to be honest I don't think this speed tester is accurate. I'm probably not getting speeds so close to what I should be getting as Speedtest or my router are suggesting but I think my speeds are nearer those than what the Broadband Speed Tester on here is reporting.

      Hello

      I tested it on mine and it is accurate, I will point this thread out to the team that run it for us. Don't go shouting at Sky yet though

      LOL okay. But I don't think that my speeds are as far out as this speed tester suggests. I do realise that speeds depend on wireless and distance from cabinet etc and I don't think the speeds at my computer are what my router is reporting but I really don't think my speeds are that low.

      Thanks for fixing it Ged.

      As for the results, they are very iffy for Fibre connections. The first I took was via WiFi, the 2nd via Ethernet.

      Well down on what Ookla is telling you then. That's good to know I will not be shouting at Sky then.

      I have to doubt that it is accurate on ADSL either. I am returning 11095 down and 1975 up, with a sync of 11517 down and 1204 up. Test on speedtest.net gives 9802 down 1020 up which is more like what my sync should give.

      Re: Sky User Broadband Speed Test

      For me on sky broadband unlimited I got, not sure the upload is correct:
      19771 Kbps 2791 Kbps
      19967 Kbps 2824 Kbps

      Speedtest using a number of different servers and shows on average 10ms ping and 19.5 to 19.7 and 1.18 to 1.2
      I noticed though that using the ashford server in kent i get a ping 1ms, but the download/upload are fine
      Thinkbroadband shows the same result as speedtest.

      Here are my current router stats;
      Connection Speed 21650 kbps 1239 kbps
