    IIRC, it's a side effect of QoS settings built into routers and ISP traffic management policies. Time dependant data (streams) get prioritised over general data (pings/transfers that speedtest uses).

    That said, I've never seen it make such a huge difference. I think it might probably be the server it's basing its test on. See if you can make it work on a closer server to you (one less than 50 miles from you maybe).
