Was trying to determine where this 'honolulu' speedtest was hosted:

Tracing route to honolulu.speedtest.net [74.209.160.12]

Trace complete.

123.87.93.224?

inetnum:        123.64.0.0 - 123.95.255.255
netname:        CTTNET
country:        CN
descr:          China TieTong Telecommunications Corporation

Well, the DNS name is for a colocation facility in Lynnwood, WA via the
Seattle Internet Exchange.  I can confirm that the 6th hop actually does
traverse the SIX, in as much as that IP is correct.

Thanks. What concerned me was the first hop...22ms. is ~ the distance from Maui to Oahu, but why the Chinese IP? Cruel joke?
I"m using Hawaiian Telcom's ADSL service and that first hop has always been their gateway IP address.
Another TCP trace shows the first hop as 123.74.62.128...another CN address.
