By the way folks, OOKLA is the host of such speed tests as SPEAKEASY, SPEEDTEST.NET and a few others.
The test is usually very inaccurate, and a little on the HIGH side.
I can't believe the FTC is using OOKLA to host their speedtest...
The Ookla test is probably fine for connections 20mbps and under. Beyond that the http based test they use fails to deliver consistent results at higher speeds. A socket based test would be preferred.
