Is there a speedtest.net-like site you like?

you'll have to forgive me for being the cynical type, but I gave up on Speedtest the day they reported 146Mbit/sec 
download over a link which was hard-wired to 100Mbit/sec full duplex, and later that day they reported 2Mbit from 
another nearby server to the same box.  I figured a stddev of 2 orders of magnitude wasn't going to give me figures 
accurate enough for my requirements.

But hey, this is the Internet: ymmv, ianal, lolwut, bbq.
