What's my speed now and potentially how fast could it be?

WHAT IS MY CURRENT SPEED?

Check your current internet connection speed at one or more of the links below. Trying a selection of speed test sites, at different times of day, should increase the reliability of your results.

Some of these are flash-based and may not work on some tablets or mobiles. 


 WHAT SPEED SHOULD I BE ABLE TO RECEIVE ON A LANDLINE?

Try the BT ADSL Checker Here 

See if you can order superfast fibre broadband by entering your phone number here

This should give you a good idea of what speeds you can expect, and when improvements might be made. 


 

MY CONNECTION SEEMS SLOWER THAN IT SHOULD BE

Check your computer: A slow computer with outdated or corrupt software will slow down your broadband connection, as will the condition of your wiring and siting of your wifi router. 

BT has a useful checklist here

If the problem persists, and the online speedcheckers suggest you should be receiving a better service than you are getting, contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
