      Because youtube is not part of globetel network..Every ISP can control the quality of the link in the speedtest server that are hosted in their network.

    In spite of upgrades, additional charges, and speed/data cappings they have done, it is still slow.

    speed test web sites depend on where you are and which server you are connecting to. For example, if you are on Globe and you connect to a Globe speedtest server, it means you are not exercising your ISP’s (Globe’s) external links. So you are just staying within your ISP’s network. That’s OK, but don’t expect to get the same speed when you are, for example, streaming from YouTube.

    some ISPs have YouTube content caching servers. The servers will be caching frequently-watched YouTube videos, so they get served faster to viewers from that same ISP.
