why does speedtest seem to show different numbers than file download?
I’ve noticed on this speedtest page:
If I click the “begin test” button it says 250 Mbps however if I download the test file, it comes in at around 100 Mbps.
Is there any possible reason for the difference? Does the flash test use TCP anybody know?
