Because every and all web sites will download differently. Reason being is all use different approaches concerning hardware. Different backbone, different hops, different time of day, different load, and the list goes on. Sorry, it's just the way the Internet is built.

im having problems with my download speed/transfer rate. i have verizon DSL 768kbs, and i recentley tested my bandwith and got 720kbs. when i download videos off a website my transfer rate is 40kbs. i called verizon there is no problems on thier side, router works fine(strength is always good/excellent and speed is 54.0 or 24.0 Mps) i have a wireless network so i plugged the PC directly to router and got the same results. is there anyway for me to increase my transfer rate to match or come close to 768kbs? BTW the website im download videos is a paid adult web site, feel i should give full disclosure for the best advice
