Oh  :o so what happens now? I use BBMax quite a lot,I find it more accurate than speedtest.net.The one at Thinkbroadband is quite good.(IMO).   :)

It's been showing that message for a week or so. There was a brief discussion on TBB but I didn't really pay attention. Something to do with its using the same engine as that speedtester where you click on the map to select your server, which is still operating normally.

[Edit] http://speedtest.net/ is the one I was talking about

Its back up but Im not sure about the accuracy.

Download Speed: 6231 kbps (778.9 KB/sec transfer rate)

In saying that most of the Ookla ones of late (including the speedtest.net servers) seem to be limited to around 7Mbps.. nor able to cope with my upstream.

Thinkbroadband site seems ok though @ 19088.62 Kbps
