These speedtests are pure unscientific bs and I'd love to see them
called out on the carpet for it.
As far as I know, it's possible for the end-to-end reported values to be
lower than your immediate upstream due to issues further upstream.
But if it reports 20MBbits/sec down and 5MBits/sec up, then the link is
able to go *at least* that fast.
(If anybody's got evidence of it reporting more than the link is technically
capable of, feel free to correct me...)
