Different sites give different{consistently} speed test readings but 70mb difference seems excessive. Any explanation? Does Flash have anything to do with it?

I know that your speed varies from moment to moment, depending on how many other people in your neighbourhood are actually downloading at the same time as the test is being run

I advise you to use several sites to check the speed. For example I use this speedtest it shows the exact results and there is little advertising.

A speed test server does not have to be located in the UK to be effective.

Readers should be aware that you must have FlashPlayer installed before you can use that test.
