Your test results from DataCardinal may differ from other speed tests or throughout the day for several reasons. Speed test results change even from hour to hour based on the number of other people using the internet at that time. Additionally, every speed test website uses a different testing method, which can lead to different speed test results. When thinking about speed test results, the most important thing is to compare one tool's results with previous results from the same tool.
