Time Variation Test

Time variation is a longer test designed to discover if the connection is being affected by TCP ramping, which occurs when the connection starts off fast and then slows down.

Some ISPs use this technique to give browser users a good experience as web pages are relativly small.

Problems then only occur when transferring larger amounts of data like music or video.

Connections can also start off slow and speed up, satellite connections are well known for this behavior.
