Test My Broadband Speed


Use Your Service Providers Broadband Speed Test below To Test My Broadband Speed. Once you have tested your broadband speed follow these steps (CLICK HERE) To test my broadband speed from within your Telephone Test Socket. If your Broadband Speed has Increased Then I can put the same speed anywhere to any Telephone Socket within your Home.

Please make sure I cover your area be for you. (see area's covered)

If The Broadband Speed Is Still Slow Within The Test Socket Then you will need to contact your service provider.

Test your Broadband Speed First ! (use one of the above links)

Then Follow the Steps as If you have NO Dial Tone ! Click HERE for help

Once you have removed your extension plate, set up your router in the test socket, within your master telephone socket then test your broadband speed again.

If your Broadband Speed or Test Result shows that you have Increased your Broadband Speed within the TEST socket, Then I can maintain that speed when your extension plate is reconnected.

If you are unable to perform the test, then you could give your service provider a call to see what speeds they think you should be receiving. you can use your first test as a guide. If your test is a lot lower than they say it should be, then you may find your internal wiring is causing the problem. You can call me direct to come test this for you as your internal wiring will need to be disconnect first In order to determine Where the problem lays. If the Problem Is with in your property I can resolve this and improve your Speeds.


There are many contributing factors to the above but one main reason why your WiFi signal comes and goes is your Broadband!, For example, Fridges, Microwave ovens, Mirrors, underfloor heating, what the materials where used to construct the building and so on...are contributing factors. But your Broadband is the main one.

So Here is a Laymen's version to help everyone understand Why! (I hope).

Their are two Types of WiFi Signal, One is your Routers Single the other is the Broadband signal carried over your Routers Signal ( bare with me! )

Your Broadband router can only give out a Broadband signal of WiFi strength if it has something to give!

For Example: When you turn the Volume up on your television, the speakers make a louder sound carrying the sound to the next room. when you turn the Volume down or off, Low or no sound can be herd.

If your Broadband signal (speed) from the telephone Exchange to your router is Low, Then your Broadband WiFi Signal strength will be low. Your Broadband Router will not be able to maximize it's signal strength for broadband if it has a low signal to start with.

Lets say your broadband signal (Speed) Is very good, But your WiFi signal keeps dropping out or you keep loosing the signal.

Apart from some of the contributing factors above the main reason for this, is again what broadband signal strength your router is getting from the exchange, for this example we are already saying your broadband speed is very good. or is it ?

You will most likely find that when you loose your WiFi signal, that if you did a broadband speed test at that time you will most likely see that the broadband speed has dropped or got lower. This is because either your internal Phone wiring (phone Extensions) which are connect to the line are causing the problem or you have what is know as a external line fault, because the WiFi signal comes and goes that is know as an Intermittent Fault.

SO How To Fix This!

The first thing you need to do is follow the steps described in NO DIAL TONE This will determine which side of the network the fault is. Is it on Your Owned Internal wiring or Your services providers owned network (Openreach) / (BT) Follow those steps purely to see if your broadband speed keeps fluctuating, If it Fluctuates more than 1Meg in several repeated tests whilst in your test socket within your master telephone socket then you are confirming the problem is EXTERNAL (with your service provider).

If the repeated tests stay with in 1 Meg then you are confirming the the broadband speed getting to the property is okay. If this happens, then replace the extension plate you have removed and then re test your broadband speed. ( up to you to resolve, it's within your property) you own the wiring. Now run a speed test again, If the speed test returns with a lot lower reading then that would indicate it is on your internal Wiring which I can help you with..

How to read the results:

1 Megabit is equal to 1,000 Kilobits (result 1.0)

So a test result returned of, 3.27 = 3Meg and 270kilobits

A test result returned of, 11.14 = 11Meg and 140Kilobits

and so on....

Remember this

when contacting your service provider, You are paying for an UP TO value:

For example:

If you are paying for an UP TO 50Meg Service but are only receiving 0 .80 Kilobits Then you have a service, albeit not a very good one, but nevertheless a service from your service provider.

An Ofcom stipulation is, your service provider must provide you with at least 0.75 Kilobits or 750 kilobits in order to class it as a broadband service.

so the bottom line is this. You can pay anything you like for a Value of UP TO !

but what you actually get is an anything UP TO Value, starting from 0.750 and upwards.

Now Clearly your service provider is their to help you. if you prove that the service you are receiving to the property is fluctuating or has a fault on it, They will instruct Openreach to go fix it, as they are responsible for the network up to your First Telephone Socket.
