This is kind of off topic but I researched about the accuracy of the speedtest app. Apparently it's not that accurate. I never got around to testing alternative methods of measuring the connection speed. I was wondering if anyone have used(sorry if this against the rules when I mention this) tethering to their computer to go on to the actual speedtest.net site and see if it differentiates from the app.
Also if anyone has used the speakeasy site to see what that reveals... heres a discussion on this: Accuracy of Speedtest.net app vs Speakeasy
