BSNL has cited 'Advertisement of BSNL's competitor on same page' as reason for pulling down its speed test servers. BSNL had commissioned four new speed test servers for its broadband and 3G customers in all the four zones. The servers were introduced due to complaints of slow broadband speeds by its subscribers across the country.

BSNL were of the opinion that most of the consumer complaints about slow broadband arise from false results given by third party servers on speedtest.net and the speed of broadband is actually not that slow. BSNL will only entertain low speed of broadband complaints if the subscriber has tested the speed using its own servers and not third party servers.

While most ISPs across the country including Airtel, Vodafone and Reliance has their own servers across multiple cities on speed test website. It is interesting that BSNL is worried about competitors poaching their customers from a speedtest website through advertisement
