Router Test Lead

I want to make up a lead so that I van check B.Band speeds at the incoming point using croc clips on the end of the socket to router line cable. What colour(s) are the A & B wires in a standard lead?

I understand Lotvic but there are a lot of bodged wiring jobs out there. Some done by householders and friends and some done by BT engineers. If it is possible, and it is in some cases, to get to where the BT line arrives then I think that will be the best place for a true Bband speed reading. It ain't highly technical.

Thanks Lotvic. Lots of households have wiring bodges, whether done by themselves or by BT engineers. It strikes me that the best lace to do a speedtest is at the point of termination on the building, which if an underground feed, can be easily accessed. It ain't highly technical to do a test there.
