Be Broadband offers speed test


by David Allen

Speed is one of the main things that internet users get annoyed about and this can be understood, especially when a customer signs up for unlimited broadband with speeds up to 8 Mbps.

Customers assume that if they are paying for up to 8 Mbps then they should be getting something close it.

However, recent surveys have found that this is not true; in some cases, the broadband speed achieved by some people is little over what they were getting on the basic broadband package.

Be Broadband who are part of O2 are planning to put away all of the question marks about speed by offering an online speed tester.

This is part of the provider’s plan to show that they are all above board and in the open.

It falls in line with Ofcom’s proposal for a voluntary code of practice, where providers should be upfront about their actual speeds instead of advertising the top speed available.
