Epitiro’s Q1-2007 Top Five ADSL Broadband ISPs

Posted: 30th Apr, 2007 By: MarkJ
Epitiro has today released its latest quarterly (Q1-2007) Internet Performance Indicator (IPI) report, which measures broadband ADSL performance from the ten largest UK ISP's:

TalkTalk, the consumer telephone provider owned by The Carphone Warehouse, has entered the top five consumer ADSL broadband providers in the UK, joining BT, Demon, AOL and Pipex at the top of the table in terms of technical performance.

The first quarter 2007 Internet Performance Indicator (IPI) Report from Epitiro – the UK’s leading Customer Experience Management (CEM) provider for Internet access services – has identified BT as the best performing broadband provider for the fourth consecutive quarter. AOL re-entered the table for the first time since Q3 2006.

Epitiro’s customer experience monitoring and competitor benchmarking service ISP-I (pronounced “eye spy”), monitored the services from the ten largest competing consumer ADSL broadband providers, collecting 634,392 real-time data samples from eleven locations around the UK. This means that from 1st January to 31st March 2007, each broadband service was tested 57,672 times on average.

ISP-I tests Internet services from the end-users’ perspective, providing detailed figures on the speed and reliability of Internet connections, how long it takes to connect to the Internet, downloads and uploads and the performance of both ping and DNS lookups

Position. Name (Q1-2007)
1. BT
2. Demon
3. AOL UK
4. Pipex
5. TalkTalk

Position. Name (Q4-2006)
1. BT
2. Pipex
3. Orange
4. Demon
5. Virgin

Typically Epitiro’s report, while interesting, doesn't monitor all UK ISP's and as a result its findings are of limited use. Never the less it is interesting to see how the big boys perform, at least in respect to their networks.
