Check your Broadband Performance with BT Speed Checker
This article provides information on using BT's Speed Tester service to determine the speed of an ADSL or FTTC connection between your premises/home and the BT core network.
Information on the BT Speed checker:
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:
Using the BT Speed Tester:
2) After a few seconds (this can take up to a minute in busy periods) you will be asked to enter your user/login name and domain. The domain box can be left blank, therefore you only need to enter details into the Username box. This needs to be entered as email@example.com (where username is your Aquiss username). Once entered then click Go.
3) After a minute, your details will be confirmed and the speedtest will start. Once complete, you will be presented with the results of your Speed test. This includes your current IP Profile set by BT, your current upstream and downstream and the actual speed you got during this test and the acceptable range of speeds that show if your line is working fine. The results are provided in kilo bits per second (Kbps), and a guide to expected speeds is provided on the Test Results page. You are advised to run the test several times over the course of 48 hours to produce an average speed. We would advise saving each report locally in order that these can be given to Aquiss in the case of any problems.
