Speed testing - why always different file sizes?

Why is it that whenever I do a speed test with P's tester the file size is always different?

surely it should be the same size so that it gives results based on downloading the same size file?

Speed testing - why always different file sizes?

Hi there,

Our speed test is like this by design. A detailed description of how it works can be found here. The file size may differ but a record is always kept of how large it was in order to calculate your line speed.

Kind Regards,
