The other speed test which I use for more detailed info is think broadbands flash based test, it provides quite a lot more ino

Portable Appliance Testing (also known as PAT Testing) is a way of checking your electrical equipment to see if it is SAFE.

Although not specifically a legal requirement, Portable Appliance Testing is a very necessary part of your organisation's Health and Safety regime. It doesn't matter whether you're a sole trader or a large multi-national corporation; if you use electrical equipment in your business, then you have a responsibility to make sure it is safe.
