According to the latest Epitro’s ranking, BT, Demon, Tiscali, Pipex and PlusNet occupy the first five slots among the top ten broadband providers selected for testing.


The speed and reliability of the services offered by top ten ISPs are assessed by comparing the duration required by each service to connect, download, upload and the time they require for ping and DNS lookups.


The testing of the ISPS was conducted by ISP-I in nine different areas in the UK.  During this quarter, each broadband services are tested over eighty thousand times so as to collect 722,623 data samples from these areas.
