BT is the largest Internet Service Provider in the UK, with upwards of 4.5million customers. A large number of users never test their speed.
BT offer broadband speeds of upto 20mb via their land-line (ADSL connection). They also offer a fibre optic broadband service of speeds upto 40mb, however coverage for this service is currently limited but BT are extending the coverage over the coming years. Fibre optic is the best way to get fast speed internet, if you have fibre optic broadband, test it now, the results should be near what you’re paying for.
Factors that affect your broadband connection speed include local availability, distance from the exchange and your internal home wiring. So this means you’ll be offered the best broadband speed available on your line.
As for doing a test, BT offer their own BT broadband speed test service via their website, which can be found at:
