Broadband Speed Test
Sorry there was a problem checking your details. Please check you have entered the correct telephone number and then press 'Start Test' again.
Before you start the speed test follow these three steps below to ensure you get accurate results.
Once you've set all that up you're ready to run the speed test.
Test from home
The BT Broadband speed tester is designed to be run from your home telephone line and may not work from other lines.
Connect with wires
For the most accurate results, your computer should be connected to your Home Hub router using an Ethernet cable and any wireless connections disabled. More information on connecting using an Ethernet cable >
Disconnect other services
Make sure no other devices or people use the broadband connection during the speed test. For the best results, close all other programs and internet browsers running on your computer and stop any active downloads.
Connecting using wires
For the most accurate results, your computer should be connected to your Home Hub or router using a wired Ethernet cable.
Although a wireless connection gives you more flexibility to position your devices around your home, it can occasionally suffer from interference, which can affect your internet browsing. An Ethernet cable is generally not affected by interference so will give you a faster, more reliable connection. The picture shows a Hub 3 connected using an Ethernet cable; please check your Home Hub or router User Guide for more information on connecting using an Ethernet cable.
