"As ISPs continue to invest in networks and deliver great Internet services, I am pleased to launch the 2017 ISPAs. These awards celebrate the true breadth and diversity of the UK Internet industry, which plays a vital role for the UK economy and society. With technical testing and expert judges, these are the most independent awards in the sector and I look forward to seeing a record number of entries."

just dont say giffgaff lol

speeds on 4G on giffgaff still around 0.1-1mb (but upload working at 15-20mb at same time) speedtest ,rootmetrics (especially rootmetrics) and opensignal is been white listed so reports higher speeds then you normally get using the phone (like installing apps and streaming video are around 200-500kbs in between 10am and near midnight)

Is our speed test on that white list?

As far as I can tell it's not been white listed (could do with having giffgaff as a selectable option you giffgaff results will be polluting your results as you can see from these for Speed test of the upload speed is typically way higher than the download speed you notice the burst speed at the first 2-3 seconds

But today they are running at around 1-2mb and slow upload

Other issue is Giffgaff has a automated hidden ban limit around 12-15gb over past 30 days (does not reset when you get a new 30 day package) the £20 goodybag ban lasts 90 days (giffgaff does not state this hidden limit in the T&C)

I post some tomorrow as I am getting unusually higher download speeds of 1-2mb (burst around mb) and around 2mb upload witch is low speeds (on 4g)

Might just be because it's a week end
