GOV test agents not similar in speeds recorded

The testing agents MLAB and OOKLA were very different than tests completed at and The other interesting event (I tested both twice) was the difference between then testing agents. My download speeds varied for MLAB @ 440kbps and OOKLA @ 2733 kbps. When using commercial test sites, I get 5600 - 5950 kbps routinely on my DSL high spped 6.0 service. Would like to see the advertised speeds be the actual speeds. I also think anything less than 1.5MBps upload is unacceptable service for the money we spend for service.
