I ran the speednet test just now. I am in the middle of nowhere, probably 5 
miles from the CO and my house sits 300 feet back from the road at the end of 
a 1/4 mile-long cul-de-sac ( and my house wiring is 25 years old)
my results:

1961 kb/s download
380 kb/s upload
67ms ping  distance <50 miles from Atlanta
and I'm in Athens.
