When I use any other speed test protocol I do not get the speed I get with Verizon speed test

For example with one speed test I get 400/350 while Verizon speed test is at 950/945

Cananyone explain that to me?

It’s because it’s a direct connection to verizons server. No congestion or faults in reaching those servers.

 

using speedtest net or google or Ookla has real world stopgaps with congestion, broken or lost packets etc.

 

verizon only accepts their speed tests no one else’s.

It’s the answer. What you accept or don’t accept does not change the answer.
