Performance cookies

These cookies will collect statistical information about visitors to the website and the pages they view. They do not collect information that identifies a visitor. All data is stored anonymously. We use these cookies to understand what content is popular, which helps us to improve our website. An example of services that use these types of cookies includes Google Analytics.

Functional cookies

These cookies allow the website to retain the choices that a user makes and can provide an enhanced and more personalised experience. Some examples of such features include:

  • Storing your preferences and settings. An example of this is when you are redirected to the mobile version of the site when you are browsing from a smartphone.
  • Remembering your favourites and video bookmarks when using the website to play videos or audio files.
  • Recalling if you have voted in a poll or rated a film review so that you do not do this more than once during your visit.

If you have a comparespeedtest.net account, a cookie on your computer lets us remember your username and email address, so you do not have to enter it again when you are commenting or writing a review. Other examples of services that use these types of cookies include PollDaddy and WordPress. For more information on how to manage cookies, including opting-out of functional cookies, please visit www.allaboutcookies.org.

Targeting and advertising cookies

These cookies are used to deliver advertising that is more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement, as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. The ads are usually placed on our site by advertising networks with our permission. They remember that you have visited a website, and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers. Often targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organisation. Some examples of services that use these types of cookies include Google AdSense or DoubleClick, Tradedoubler, and Afflinet.

Behavioural Advertising Cookies

We use these cookies to measure general user behaviour across our websites. Third-party sites use them to build a profile based on a visitor's browsing patterns so that we can target advertising to them that will be more relevant to their interests. For example, if a user visits a page with TV, Broadband, and Phone plans, then the cookie will collect this information. We may then target adverts for TV, Phone, and Broadband services to those users and, if users visit third party sites that are part of the same advertising network, those third parties may target adverts for those services to those users. If you would prefer to opt-out of behavioural advertising cookies, please visit All About Cookies
