Variable internet connection speeds

I use speedtest.net to check my connection speed. Using Google Chrome it is almost invariably 1.93 Mbps, give or take a few bits. I have recently checked using Firefox and IE8 immediately after checking with Chrome and the results were 0.71 and 0.69 Mbps respectively. I downloaded a 13 Mb podcast which took 58 seconds using Chrome and 231 seconds using Firefox (1.8 and 0.45 Mbps respectively) – what is goling on.

There are many factors which could cause this but I think you would would do better to ask your ISP this question - after all it is you that is paying for your connection.
