Broadband speed checkers

Not sure if this is the correct forum but I'll ask anyway. I have just checked my broad band speed on thinkbroadband which said i was running AI 1.6mgb and Broadband expert which said I was running AT 6.2MGB. With such a big difference are either to be trusted. Both tests where done within 3minutes of each other

Checked mine using same 2 tests. One shows 5.27
and the other 5.09.

Seems reasonably consistant to me. Have you re-checked.

Are you comparing like with like? You need to check that both sites are reporting in the same units as some use different scales , some work in bits and some in bytes.

Not really sure both sites state Mbps and Kbps but if its bytes or bits I don't know today they where similar at 4.1 5.7 Mbps for down load
