Have you done repeated tests? Can you tells more about the systems in question and your network? –  slhck Sep 24 '12 at 6:09
@slhck Well, had done it several times but with same result. As for the systems, the host is windows & the vm runs linux. –  gopi1410 Sep 24 '12 at 6:11
the ping and upload speeds are the same - I suspect speedtest download ran into a download cache burst.. like @slhck said need more details - network adapter, type of connection, how many systems sharing the network and so on –  Sathya Sep 24 '12 at 7:37
