I'll report when I get home...

The time of day affects your results too if you are on cable. On cable, you 'share' the bandwidth with your neighbors and so this test may give very different results at 5 pm when everyone gets home and starts surfing the net, as opposed to mid-day...
In conclusion, I can leave you with no better advice than that given after every sermon by Msgr Vincent Giammarino, who was pastor of St Michael’s Church in Atlantic City in the 1950s:

    “My dear good people: Do what you have to do, When you’re supposed to do it, The best way you can do it,   For the Love of God. Amen.”

For the type of internet browsing I'm doing I've never had a problem. When I was in Krakow I had 60Mbps no problem.

You should add what you pay monthly, as well!

217.95 mbps d/l, 24.83mbps u/l, 60 Euro with UPC (they call themselves Virgin Media now, but that's because UPC have a toilet level reputation with customers, ring them and find out for yourself) but that includes TV service, although that is discounted as the company put one of their repeaters on the side of one of the houses.

Oh I forgot, Ping is 5mbps.

My upload speed is higher than my download speed -- so strange.

Ping -- 12ms
Download -- 5.70
Upload -- 6.75

No clue what we pay, since my husband handles it.

I retested and got higher numbers.

Ping -- 14ms
Download -- 10.72
Upload -- 6.81

The Boonies of Western NY. I pay handsomely for these speeds, which in rural NY, is like grease lightning. Most folk only have dial-up or satellite. The only reason I get these numbers is because a rich neighbor had already paid the cable company to run a line past our house, which we now also run off. About 70 dollars a month. That would have included cable TV, but we refused that service.
