      Speed of my connection varies by location

      I have noticed that the speed of my connection varies according to where in the world the website I am using is.

      I have used this site Speedtest.net - The Global Broadband Speed Test which allows you to do speed tests at different locations around the world. The fastest speed seems to be New York and the USA seems fast generally but the UK which is much closer is a lot slower. The New York test is about 10 times faster than Dublin.

      Anyone know why this would be?
