speedtest.net is not a reliable place because they can't handle really fast speeds like 30+ mbps. I would recommend this website if you are in the US: http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/

[edit]
I just did the speedtest.net test and I got this:


This is my speed:

Keep in mind my wireless router is only G, so I am limited by that speed. On my desktop I get 50+ mbps download.

That speed isn't too bad. The slowest speed offered by Qwest in my area is about 1.5 mbps.

And that would be inaccurate.

From here:

Inaccurate Results Over 20 Mbps
Our speed test is tuned to measure residential broadband services up to 20 Mbps over HTTP. It takes a very customized installation to be able to accurately measure up to 100 Mbps over HTTP.
