I captured the packets, with time stamps of the WOW speed test at:
Download Speed: 15.758 Mbps (15758 kb/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 2.149 Mbps (2149 kb/sec transfer rate)

I wanted to find out if this was decimal or binary bit numbersIt's definitely decimal.
I guess the big clue is how Mbps and kb/sec are presented above.
I took several packet windows and calculated the downstream speed (didn't do upstream at all) and I get:
Download Speed: 15.751 Mbps (decimal)
I stripped off standard 14+32 bytes for TCP overhead. Hey, that agreed nicely! A difference of 0.04% They don't get better than that.
Sorry... just an engineer with too much curiosity. Be assured the speed test is accurate. Now back to you regularly scheduled forum.
