Still the same problem - if there's a bottleneck upstream of your ISP,  you won't
be testing what you think you're testing.  (We once hit an interesting corner
case trying to use one of the speedtest.net servers - we had a clear 10G path
out through like 3 AS's in a row, the bottleneck was speedtest.net's server. :)
