None of those short tests are any good.
The only consistent result I get is by starting several large downloads simultaneously then adding the speeds or monitoring it in my firewall/router.
Totally agree that is the BEST way to test, but most people just want a quick check like any speed test site does.
That testmy.net site is about as inaccurate most of the time as any flash test also. Totally depends on time of day and what browser you're using there.--
The Firefox alternative.
