lol it says "faster than 87% of Sweden". Yet, in that situation it is probably very nice, still.
Probably not correct. ^^
Woot! Just noticed I'm top uploader!
Found this on Reddit, a Google Image team did an Ask Me Anything thread and dropped this speedtest:
I don't entirely trust those >200 Mbps <5 ms results. It looks unreal, as if someone became his own Speedtest host by running the speedtest server, and making speedtest.net run the test from 127.0.0.1 (localhost) or from some machine on the local gigabit LAN.

If you connect via fibre to another server in the same city the ping is often very low, http://www.speedtest.net/result/1087195689.png is from my residential connection if it was a 1000Mbit connection instead of a 100Mbit I have no doubt it could go higher than 200 with a ping less than 5ms.
Should have 50/50 Mbit, symmetric rate, but eh, whatever...
I don't have my 100/25 connection anymore! It came with the rent in my old place, but I moved so now I'm on this.
Still plenty for my needs. 10/10 for €9/month for six months and then it's €17 or something/month.
the one he posted above is a google speedtest and they likely have their servers in the same colo as speedtest. I know my company does for our local one. That can make for some ridiculous results, but yet not entirely true ones.
edit: and actually if it's google they could be hitting 10gb speeds and speedtest is truncating them. I wish I could video my results, they hit 500-700Mbps and then hit some kind of browser/speedtest lag and end up reporting the low lag number. This is a 1Gb pipe, we have 2 at work one through qwest(now centurylink) the other is through ioconnect which is also our colo. Also different sites get better results, the la site for ex has speedtests biggest server and therefore will be the closest for those with direct backbone connections like my company has.
Home, wired, ADSL2+
your ping is relatively low for Au.
At work "working hard"
still 99% faster then canada
dont ask me how they get 0ms its not fake its just how fast we are.
02 local loop unbundled broadband ADSL (bethere network, 20mbit d/l advertised)
I'm sure I posted before in this thread but search says no. Nevermind !
Loving the ping
lol at people posting their work speeds. you should post your home speeds only. i could run speedtest on a server at my DC with dual port bonded 1Gbps fiber uplinks, but that would be cheating. people are mostly just interested in home connections.
No, we're interested in them all.
I love ethernet. No wonder why people keep asking me to host online games.
Im to embarrassed to show mine.....Australia,s UP is feckn ridiculous.....
Canada FTW...569/143 niicceeeee
Upgraded to 50 Mbps.
Wired or wireless?
Can't get those speeds on wireless.
wifi N you might. i've pushed 6MB/s across mine
This is a wired 22/4 cable connection at home:
and this is my laptop wireless 22/4 at home:
