I guess you get what you pay for
The speed test is not actually a speed test...it's a bandwidth test. Let's see how accurate it is. I got 1177.6 Kbps, which is between DSL/Cable and Cable/DSL (yah..apparently, those are different things ...) and then I pressed the back button, but it won't let me go back and just performed the test again! This time, I got 408000 Kbps , that's more than T3 which is not possible because I know for a fact that I have ADSL. OK, just for fun, I went to the page again and started over, and guess what I got this time? 3953.5 Kbps, just above T1.
Wow, this is amusing me (way more than it should), some other results: 136000 Kbps, 2910.1 Kbps, 204000 Kbps. Haha, apparently my connection is very bandwidth friendly
