[Geolocation] result.numUsedGateways less than total sent

I have only used API-v3 to send a singleframe HTTP request, but sometimes even if I send a package with 5 gateways, I get in the result only 3. Does anybody know why is that happening?

I have uploaded my JSONs sent (left) and received ( right) from the HTTP request:

Hi,

The parameter "numUsedGateways" is an information that 3 gateways have been used by the solver out of the 5 you provided, so it considered that 2 of them provided bad quality data and discarded it to improve accuracy
Hi Olivier,

The variable name was self explanatory, but what makes a gateway data be considered bad quality exactly?
