I feel like the speed test apps are bogus...
Yeah, it does feel quite slow too. Also, if the speed test apps were "bogus", a lot more people would be noticing discrepancies. I can understand speeds looking unbelievably high in some cases for broadband - there's a few sites where I can pull 50Mbps on my Comcast connection, for example, but that's not a realistic measure of my typical speeds. However, the speeds for wireless are so comparatively low that the measurements should be a good representative.
I've tried the FCC and speedtest.net apps and even set up a mini-test on my own server. The apps don't often choose very good testing locations, but different locations don't change the result much for me.
