Re: Slow Broadband? BTWholesale's speedchecker still requires antiquated Adobe Flash.
"there's a non flash version of the common speed test tool.
Great, you got an ad in for speedtester Ookla.
I know there are other methods other than Ofcom to test a broadband connection.
What do you take the readers on here for?
What is the point of individual customers testing their speed with Ookla, when the only way to get that data to BTWholesale/Openreach (and passed to your ISP for further diagnostis) is via the antiquanted BTWholesale Speedchecker which uses (the well established) zero day security threat - Adobe Flash.
(BTWholesale Speedchecker that tells you nothing regards local congestion, BTWholesale congestion, ISP internode congestion, ISP traffic shaping, ISP faults).
The BTWholesale speedchecker is a complete load of sh.it, to put it bluntly, it tells you NOTHING as a customer, and needs a proper overhaul.
Spend some money BT so customers can truely see the congestion/traffic shaping in place on your network.
(The penny drops...).
Traffic shaping is acceptable in the short term to deal with an increase in traffic but if an ISP does nothing to resolve that issue in the longer term, there needs to be some regulations placed on ISPs to have a deadline to lift traffic shaping, where the core flow of data is constantly hitting those limits either through a local issue, BTWholesale issue, or an ISP Internode / Network issue.
Aggressive traffic shaping 9-6pm, 5 days a week, permanently - is not what traffic shaping should be used for, but there are UK ISPs doing this, and it doesn't show up on speedcheckers.
