But why is their result so different than bandwidthplace?
Speediest download speed show double, which sounds great, but is it real?
Just now it measured 110Mbps, while bwp shows 50 Mbps.

Bandwidthplace is giving me 23.12 down while speedtest.net is giving me 24.61 so I am getting comparable if not the same results.

Cool, I had mostly stopped using it in favor of the html5 test at [speedof.me] Hadn't heard of bandwidth place.

I'm pretty sure some ISPs just feed out whatever your advertised speed is when they detect you're using speedtest.net. I would get very different results testing with speedtest.vonage.com and speedtest.net, the latter always being faster and always being bang on what I was sold

Weren't some ISPs gaming their service to return better results?

DSLReports' test got rid of Flash a while back, and it's the one I've been using mostly.

It's owned by cable companies, as I recall.

I use it to confirm the theoretical speed. Charter games it for about two min when I use it, then speed drops.
