Because browsers typically download files and store them on disk the upper limit of this speed test is going to be limited by the fastest write speed of your PC disk drive.

In the case of a spinning disk this might be as low as 500 megabit.

general you can solve any issues with mobile speed measurements by simply setting the number of upload/download streams to 1/1, and then increasing it to find the best setting.

You can post in the feedback topic or if you're chasing gigabit speeds try the gigabit feedback topic speedtest gigabit testing/results/debugging or if you are interested in Buffer Bloat, there is a buffer bloat topic too:

Or you can send me an instant message via the site.

Linux desktop graphics can be quite slow versus the closer GPU integration browsers enjoy on tablets, phones, Windows and OSX.

The job of updating the screen especially the graphs can be too much for the browser. Adblock is a poor product that uses a vast amount of regular expressions to try to guess what resources might be adverts.

Since the test does use some graphics, those may also be a source of excessive CPU usage in cases where the browser is not well suited to the OS..

Check whether the drivers for your computer are the latest. If your ISP is offering a near 100megabit download speed and your desktop ethernet card is 100mbit, you may find the ethernet driver is not capable enough to handle the load.Your browser can also have a buffer which makes the initial few seconds of "reported" upload speed faster than it should be.If you have been using a speed test located IN your ISP network, or very close to it, it will have a very low ping time.Inevitably it gets this wrong and silently blocks things that are not ads to say nothing of slowing down your browser.If you use Adblock you can't really expect any help from websites that have any ad revenue.If you are interested in ping time to all different locations, the speed test has a latency radar plot. Although it tries not to exceed the limitations of your mobile device, it might.
