I challenge that - unless maybe they have some kind of cap on the speeds
they can test.

We have 250Mb fiber here, and this test only shows me getting about 50Mb
- and the Upload test fails to start, it just hangs at 'Preparing Upload
Test' after the download test finishes.

All of the other tests I've used consistently show about 230-235Mb (up
and down).

It does look cool, but I dislike how many external sites it links to,
and that it says it doesn't work right with Ad blockers enabled. I did
try disabling UBlock on this site, and the speed test results were the same.
