you'll have to forgive me for being the cynical type, but I gave up on
Speedtest the day they reported 146Mbit/sec download over a link which was
hard-wired to 100Mbit/sec full duplex, and later that day they reported
2Mbit from another nearby server to the same box.  I figured a stddev of 2
orders of magnitude wasn't going to give me figures accurate enough for my
requirements.

But hey, this is the Internet: ymmv, ianal, lolwut, bbq.
