Varying speedtest results


[link to this post]
 
Hi, Just taken three "speedtests" within seconds of each other - as below - and wonder why exactly there should be such vastly different results. Any thoughts?
Cheers, Les

Iplayer tests give a variety of numbers, often one is higher than another in their tests.

Why the variations, different servers in different locations, different levels of congestion, also actually testing different things

iPlayer used for streaming
TBB a custom TCP protocol
Speedtest.net HTTP traffic
