Re: [AL] SpeedTest.net pointing to Des Moines,IA as closest...

Could be the magic of routing that it makes it think that is the closest site. I have it every now and then at work. Zoom out and find a state close to you

The problem with the magic of routing of that nature... would be instead of being served locally like before. I have incurred latency due to the fact that all of my requests must make it to IA before out to the "NET"

I don't know if you actually serious with the above statement but really? You think your backbone actually has to go all the way to Des Moines before you hit the net? Google this question and you can find tons of correct answers. Post a trace route and see where it all goes.
