    Likely because you have a wired connection to your computer. That is almost always faster

    I know the iPhobe is capped at about 12mbps and I can't imagine the iPod Touch being capable of handling speeds any faster than that.

    Yup, although I don't know what the maximum spee that the iPod Touch is capable of going to. I'd imagine it being at around eight?

    Try another server on Speedtest.net. I live in Edmonton so I tried the Edmonton server and only got around 3-4mbps, but I tried the Burnaby server and got the full speed(15mbps). So the speed test isn't all that accurate.
