    Is the distance to the server very important in terms of speed?

    I have read that you should always pick the closest; it will be the most accurate because of fewer relays, or something like that.

    Very true, I usually use speakeasy Speed Test because they have a server in New York City as I live just over the George washington Bridge http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/ I achive the same results with both tests.

    Very inaccurate for me! Ran this test five times and my speed was always 13,000+. Should be closer to 6,000. And the upload speed is too low.

    I'll stick to Java-based tests.

    Speedtest actually uses the all the SpeakEasy test servers. I noticed all the SpeakEasy server locations are on the Speedtest map, and I get the same speeds from it. (Plus, you see Sponsored by SpeakEasy when you use them)

    I was noticing that as well.. servers with the best download speeds had half the upload speeds of the others.

    My ISP said I'm supposed to be getting around 3Mbps. Don't know if this is close or not.
