Ashby Broadband Speed Test In a bid by the parish council to assist
the Better Broadband campaign for rural Norfolk,
Ashby residents are asked to test their broadband
download speed. Residents undertook tests in 2015
- but we need more! If you live
in Ashby and are willing to help for the first time
(or to check your speed again) just carry out the
very simple test following steps 1 - 4.
1. Click on this website link http://www.speedtest.net/
(For consistency only this site
is being used)
2. When the speedtest page opens, click only on
'Begin Test'. (Suggestion - ignore any other messages
inviting you to do a computer check or other function) 3. Wait a minute or so until the short
test has finished. This will have occurred when
you see the figures stop measuring 'Download' and
4 Make a note of the 'Download' figure, the time
you did the test and email the details HERE
For your interest the last reported download speed
test figure achieved by a resident in July 2017
was 15.3 Mbps, and Upload speed 1.0 Mbps. This may
have improved following the upgrade via the new
BT cabinet at the Chapel Road/Chapel Lane junction.
