First, welcome to TestMy.net... and thank you for taking the time to write me.
What may be happening is a delay in the transaction. If there is a pause before the upload is actually initiated that time is taken into consideration. You might transfer quicker once it actually starts but in all reality once the pause is calculated in your overall speed will drop... I believe this is important information to know... but then again it will be nice to also know the sustained speed without that pause.
Right now I'm on vacation but I'll return to programming after about the 20th. I have allot of ideas that I want to put on paper (well, not really paper I guess ) once I get back. One of them will be an extra statistic on your results that show your maximum speed during the transfer and the sustained speed calculated from the moment bits start flowing.
In addition I'll also be adding latency... and will be opening up an API that will allow anyone with a website to host their own speed test... there are a ton of other things that I'll be working on. You'll just have to wait and see what I come up with.
Have you tried http://old.testmy.net?

I have. old.testmy.net in fact reports the upload properly for my connection. The new one always shows half of what the old one shows and the new one also does not jive with what real-world transfers and other speed tests show. For example:
New test: http://testmy.net/ykwV7AJ.png
Old test: http://oldtestmy.net...ts/id-JM4DHSG16
Both of the above were done with the same machine, same browser, and approx. the same size. I ran two tests and both scored around the same range.
Other speed test sites show the following:

The delays I see with the new Testmy.net are just the transition between generating the test data to upload and then the actual upload itself. The test data takes nearly no time at all to make on Firefox and on the computer I normally use. My router shows an immediate saturation of the upstream to the uplink speeds I have the connection restricted to (to stop the 2000+ms lag monster) when running the test and the test runs in an acceptable duration for the speed, but the test isn't reflecting what I'm seeing.
Latency would be an awesome thing to see though!

... Thanks for fixing that bug and also for the promotion! ...
I do agree, programming can be a pain at times. I'm not a programmer but I do know HTML, PHP, Lua and C++ a little bit, but for working at a datacenter where you have to deal with an enslaught of programmers wondering why their code doesn't work on the servers properly, I'm sure I've seen quite a bit as it is

In case you're interested too I do hang around on sites such as DSLReports or the Verizon forums helping others out too, so I am pretty well known amongst DSL-related forums to help resolve connectivity problems. I'll gladly help folks out here when I have my free time as I do on other sites.
