Test your broadband speed
Welcome to our broadband speed testing page. If you are experiencing difficulties, please read our troubleshooting section below.
These files are provided to help users test their download speeds from our servers. You can also run a speed test however downloading files can be easier to compare with real usage or where Java / Flash is unavailable.
Please be aware that downloading these files will count towards your download usage allowances imposed by your broadband provider and the large files may use up a large proportion of this if you only have a small allowance (1GB - 3GB for example). We suggest only testing the large files if you have a connection speed faster than 10 Mbps.

The speedtester connects using the HTTP protocol over TCP port 80. Please ensure these ports are not blocked by firewalls.
If you see particularly slow speeds, and are using wireless (WiFi) we recommend connecting to your broadband router using an Ethernet cable.
If you receive the message "Unable to connect, please try again later.", you may be running a firewall or a network configuration which is preventing the tester from connecting. If your Internet access is restricted via a web proxy server only, you will not be able to run this test.
