Your broadband speed has a direct impact on the type of services you can enjoy. For example, if you like using services such as BBC iPlayer, testing your speed can help you optimise your viewing experience.

If you choose fibre broadband, then the advanced technology used means that you are much more likely to get closer to the maximum possible speed. The connection will also be both more consistent and more reliable.
