My XFINITY Speed Test shows that my speed is reaching 105Mbps, but when I try to download from other sites, the speeds aren't as fast. Why is this happening?

Your home Internet connection is capable of reaching download speeds up to 105Mbps using Comcast's network. However, the website you are visiting may operate at slower connection speeds. For example, if the website caps speeds on its download server at 5Mbps, the download speed you will obtain will not be greater than 5 Mbps, regardless of the capability of Comcast's network. In addition, the website's connection may be shared by other users downloading from it at the same time. If so, the download speed from that website may be split among those who are downloading at the same time, which could affect your speed.
