speedtest.net 'connection grade'


[link to this post]
 
Curious to see what speeds make which grades.

http://speedtest.net/result/1831045480.png

6.77Mb/s

National 32% (D)

Global 43% (C-)

Be interesting to see others' speeds and grades, especially the sub 4 Meg folk. 90% coverage and all that.

66.92Mbps

National 92% (A)

Global 91% (A)


eta- some interesting discrepancies between my results and Griff's confused

eta Mk 2... could be due to the ping times? If I let the tester choose its own server I can get sub 10ms pings, but the speeds are a lot slower (typically ~45Mbps).

Ok, I'm sync'd at 16824kbps today.

http://www.speedtest.net/result/1831180755.png

Grade B faster than 65% of GB.

Where do you get the National/Global numbers from?

After the test completes, it should be on the right of the screen.

National B+ (79%)

Global A- (82%)

Although yesterday my National was A- (81%) ...

pulling up my best result: http://speedtest.net/result/1259982928.png

If you click on the question mark to the right of the "CONNECTION GRADE" heading, you get:
Based on the currently displayed results, connection grades show how you stack up with others in your country and around the world. For example if your value is 77% (giving you a B+) then only 23% of connections are faster than yours. The scale is:

A = 80-100%
B = 60-79%
C = 40-59%
D = 20-39%
F = 0-19%

Plus/minus grades are given for the top/bottom 5% of each grade.
No indication whether ping times have any bearing on the grade.

I saw that, but was curious to see what sort of speeds were falling into which grades. 0-19% (F) is what? 2 Meg? 0.5 Meg?
