WebpageTest vs. Google PageSpeed Insights

RE: WebpageTest vs. Google PageSpeed Insights
Any two speed testing services are going to give you different results. They have different methods of testing, are ran on different networks, etc. WPT allows you to simulate multiple devices and throttle network bandwidth, while GPSI just gives you a desktop and mobile result.

That being said, I have noticed some inconsistent results within the public WPT.org. If you love WPT but want it more consistent, try setting up a private instance, or use a premium monitoring service like SpeedCurve or MachMetrics.

Important thing is to pick one tool and check it over time, that's the only way to ensure you're tackling your page speed from both an offensive and defensive approach.
