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
'Downlaod' and 'Upload'.
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 was 6.33 Mbps.
