What are they doing, measuring it from Mars..

Rerunning test..

0.07Mb upload
164,75 ms ping time..

Doing more advanced test:

1. Downstream Test:

Download Speed : 0 Mbps

Your speed test has completed and the results are shown above, however during the test an error occurred while trying to retrieve additional details regarding your service. As a result we are unable to determine if the speed you received during the test is acceptable for your service. Please re-run the test if you require this additional information.

Redoing test..

Download speed 6.80Mb
0.08Mb upload
10,997 ms ping time, best so far via BT !

Advanced one..

 Download speedachieved during the test was - 0 Mbps
 For your connection, the acceptable range of speeds is 0.6 Mbps-7.15 Mbps.
 Additional Information:
 Your DSL Connection Rate :8.13 Mbps(DOWN-STREAM), 0.45 Mbps(UP-STREAM)
 IP Profile for your line is - 7.15 Mbps

I test by downloading several things and seeing what my connection maxes out at, which is 7.2Mb down.

Not yet tested upload speeds..

Less than a mile from the exchange for me.

Interesting information about IP Profile there being set lower !
