Del 14,

 

The algorithms for the two tests are different, but that is not the main reason why it gives different results. The main reason is that you will always get different results from minute to minute, hour to hour, and day to day.

 

If you look at our ping tests, we take averages for 10 different tests from 6-7 different sites. This is to eliminate some of the randomness of the internet.

People always seem to want to run a small test to chect their internet connection. I know that a cable modem connection tends to speed up then slow down then hit rated speed after about 3 seconds. Try running a test that takes about 30 seconds to run, that should give a more stable result.
