    Can anyone enlighten me with this, every time I do a speed test I am getting really strange results?

    I know this can’t be right as my line only says 7meg and it’s only on up to 8meg package.

    try downloading 2 files from reliable servers probably MS and 1 other and add the download speeds together see what you get then.

    I have checked Samknows and it doesnt look like it.

    Exchange Brigg

    12/08/2008 BT Wholesale are no longer reporting a Wholesale Broadband Connect (WBC) enablement date for the Brigg exchange (Was previously 19/05/2009)

    29/03/2008 BT Wholesale has set an enablement date of 19/05/2009 for their 21CN Wholesale Broadband Connect product at the Brigg exchange

    19/10/2006 BT have set a target date of Q4 2010 for the switch to 21CN for the Brigg exchange

    I just tried that site, and it is reporting a download speed of close to my Line Rate, which is impossible and so I guess that there is another online speed test site that we can't rely on any more. I guess that they changed some of their algorithms.
