CNET Bandwidth Test Results are much Lower than Other Sites

I just upgraded my DSL connection from 1.5 Mbps to 7.0 Mpbs and wanted to test the actual bandwidth. I've run tests at several web sites including CNET. CNET always returns results of just 1.3 to 1.8 Mbps while all the others test sites return results of 4.8 to 5.2 Mbps.
All tests have been run using a desktop PC connected to my router/modem via ethernet cable. Any thoughts as to why CNETs results would consistently vary so much from the other sites?
