I know this pipe can do 500/125 KB/s just fine, but I never got that to show here. If it could only ignore the first second of the download/upload test it'd show me at my cap. That's my only gripe with ALL connection tests, and yes, testmy.net is the most accurate one of all.

  Testmy.net has always been the best and most accurate test site for me! But lately it hasn't but I think it is my pc or something! I took a test selected the 3mb file like I usaully do and then this time it made me do it again with the 12mb file and look at the results below: This can't be a cache since I haven't did a 12mb test in like a year or more lol! I have no idea why I know I don't get this for real I have dsl lol! I get about 2.5mbs not this I am not sure why!

Are you using the Google Web Accelerator?  Or any other web accelerator program... these contribute to false results.

Nope none of that! But I think my pc may have some adaware on it! And my internet connection was going down alot lately so maybe sbc put in some kind of cache thing or something! But this is the first time in along time I have took a 12 mb file size test I have no idea but the query database takes for ever and the downloading take no time I think that maybe why! Not sure but something on my end is probably causing this.

Do you feel that the DOWNLOAD speedtest was accurate?

I believe that is tryies to be accurate. But what I notice is that Comcast seems to have a lag at around 20-30 seconds time intervals. Since the test is shorter than that, it doesn't see the lag (i.e. at 1k, now at 4k, it isn't really 4 times faster)
