I have an Internet connection of 20 megabit per second. This is the download speed I get in Chrome/Firefox for Windows 10.
Now when I connect to the same Ethernet Connection via my iMac and download a particular/same file used to test the download speed in Windows, I get only 1 Mbps max, no matter which browser I use in my iMac the speed is same.
Why does this happen?
For macOS cURL speed test:
