Tried the test, but not as good as I thought I would get. I am located in Australia, Adelaide on the Telstra Bigpond Unlimited plan, uncapped/128, and my test was:

I just did it again to make sure it was corrrect and I got this:

And once more to see if it was a mistake or for real and I achieved this: It is becoming more and more like a uncapped/128 connection.

BTW Welcome to the forum!

There is a 20.5Mb test on one of the AU mirrors.. http://www.testmy.net/o-mirror-ShaneAu2
