FibreNest Broadband is the second most tested broadband provider in the UK, while BT is the UK's second most tested ISP with 7,051,651 tests performed this year, compared to FibreNest's 5,008 speed tests. While looking at the fastest speeds seen from each broadband provider often doesn't tell the full story — BT is first with 6,068.11 Mbps, FibreNest 14th with 529.1 Mbps — looking at download speed ranges alongside the percentage of speed tests higher than 50 Mbps will give a clearer picture.
