Re: Speed test sites and why you shouldnt take them for granted
I'm not sure why you think TBB's result is "wrong". For one, Speedtest.net tests run four downloads simultaneously, which is more likely to reflect four people using the connection at a time, doing different things but is useless for testing single-threaded speeds.
So if TBB tells you how fast your connection would run downloading one file and Speedtest.net tells you the total speed of downloading four files - why is one more "wrong" than the other? Judging by your numbers both are exactly spot on. Four times 27 is almost exactly equal to the Speedtest.net speed for four files.
I for one care far less about 4-threaded speeds when I want one file to download, being able to stream four videos at 1/4 quality simultaneously is useless to me when I want to watch one video at full quality...
