[Speed/Latency] What is this Speedtest?

»www.speedtest.net/my-result/2853 ··· 53207737

I have Verizon DSL, the picture is not mine, I found it. My Verizon DSL allows me to use features that are meant for FIOS customers, like ESPN 3 access on Xbox Live, but does Speedtest.net confuse DSL with FIOS or is this likely a buffer issue?

[Speed/Latency] Re: What is this Speedtest?

Don't know if I understand your question. Are you asking how someone could get 150/75 speeds on DSL?

If that's your question, the answer is they can't. Most likely a block of IP addresses associated with DSL (probably by rDNS hostname) was shifted to FIOS, but VZ hadn't updated the zone info for that block yet. Not the first time it's happened.
