      Sky Fibre Speed Test

      My daughter has Upgraded from Sky Unlimited to Sky Fibre cost 20 per month, this was 4 weeks ago. When using Skyuser Speed Test as before, she now is unable to activate the `2` dials -- Up / Down Speeds -- therefore not getting any Speed test readings. At the same time of Upgrade, she also bought an Apple IMac Computer, does that make the difference, when trying to get Skyuser Test Speeds. If it does, any ideas please, how she checks her SKY Broadband Fibre Speed ? ?

      You could try BTW Performance Test or Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test

      Not sure why this site's tester is not working for you.

      Re: Sky Fibre Speed Test

      This may be your problem- I think the speedtester sites require javascript installed, Internet explorer would automatically download and install it (it can take a while, would happen in the background , and may have installed itself ages ago so you wouldn't have noticed it or its requirement anyway). As for Macs I have no experience but have you tried leaving it for a while to allow it to download and install in the background- no experience with these as I have said, you may have to actually install it or enable it in security preferences somehow
