Probably not really fair to use this, since it's a high-tiered campus connection, but since I'm living on campus I guess it's technically correct. The actual speed depends on how many people in your building are (illegally) downloading media files, but at peak usage times it's usually 3-5 megs (1-2 at worst). They recently started capping uploads so wireless now has an advantage over wired. It used to be 30-50 mb/s (70 if not used by anyone) for uploads. Oh, how I miss the days when it took only a few minutes to perform a complete online backup...

Been alittle while since I tested. But found that results vary greatly. Actually, the server recommended by speedtest, gives me the poorest result. I am located in Denmark, Scandinavia by the way

Recommended Malmõ (Sweden):

Dunno whats up with the one from Sweden :) But I have better line to Florida than something 400km away :)
I have a 18/1 Mbit cable Line (Soon to be 20mbit Fiber)

...on my laptop (HP Pavilion dv8035, see sig), over a 54 Mb/s wireless network, actual ISP is Comcast (nominal speed: 5Mb/s). I'm actually located in Brunswick, ME, approximately midway between the Bangor, ME and Manchester, NH servers on the Speedtest map. I tried running the test on both servers; the above result is from the Bangor server (the Manchester server hung on 'Testing Ping' and wouldn't go any further)...

...and later tried this...

...and even checked out an overseas link (to Germany, Düsseldorf/Ratingen), and got this...

...on my desktop (see sig); direct Ethernet connection from cable modem (not wireless). When I ran this on the desktop, I didn't even have the Manchester, NH server as an option. And the 'results' display looks completely different than it did when I ran it on the laptop...
...correction: it's different on my laptop, too, now. Looks like the site made some changes today...
