A bit like comparing Speedtest results with someone in another city to compare ISPs.. A totally meaningless comparison.

I find the whole concept of testing Netflix to be flawed; with 100 Mb/s connections relatively common, testing with streams in the single digits doesn't really tell you much.

i do like https://fast.com/ as a source for speedtesting, uses netflix network but is threaded.

 

 

 

agree though, single threaded tests are a tad iffy though.
