I often work from home and wanted to see how good the connection was between the two points. I can speed test both locations of course, but that isn't necessarily representative of the actual throughput between the two points.
Given the different ISP's and service speeds, I imagine I'd get different results depending on which end I test from. One connection has 3x the upload speed making it the better server end I believe.
The results of a test like this test would be useful and interesting for determining how I might configure network services.
