    not sure about the phone but I know from my own internet speed test results ,I get nothing like this when downloading from any site ,likely because of where the data is coming from .

    The mostly like reason for your speed drops is that the results of these tests merely measure the fastest up/down speeds that your connection is capable of, what you get in real-world situations will usually be lower than what the tests say, because various factors come into play.
