Add at least your operating system as tag. –  vtest Jul 7 '10 at 8:44
    
Note also, that 920 kb (kilobits) = 115 kB (kilobytes); this is probably the maximum speed which may not be reachable under all circumstances (e.g. if a server is on a slow line or throttles its bandwidth) –  Piskvor Jul 7 '10 at 9:00

Speedtest is crap. Many modems do on-the-fly compression, and speedtest.net uses very compressible data, leading to massive measurement errors. –  Fake Name Jul 13 at 7:38

Try Speed.io.
