    I have a question about the Diagnostic test (

    The results show three streaming speed tests. What is the difference between these? Do they relate to different streaming servers or simply three tests of the same server? ..or maybe something else??

    If different servers, does the iPlayer server software always choose the fastest available when I come to stream a programme?

    Hi Tradewind25,
    I think each streaming test is for one of the BBC's streaming providers.

    Presumably the system connects you to the best server it can when you press play.
