I dont think any of them are accurate.

Last time I went to Xnets site, it was pretty low.

When I downloaded something, it was faster than what the site said.

Speeds can vary quite a bit, and between tests minutes apart, at this time of the evening, and will be a bit slowish too (lots of other people using the bandwidth, blast them!): yours is a reasonable speed but for a better indication, you want to test after midnight.

Richgamer, many would be happy with the speeds you have although I doubt you will find anyone on PF1 who would be happy with your choice of Xtra - the worst internet provider you could have chosen. Maybe you are from Korea or Japan where hyper speed is the norm?
