They may do some magic with bandwidth delay products.. If that was the case, they may have written it for a standard 
latency versus something that is unreasonable by interweb standards.

Try it with upwards of 900ms of variable latency.

The last crazy result I got was 146mbit/s on a hardwired 100 mbit link  and 1-2ms latency to the 
speedtest.net<http://speedtest.net> server I was using at the time (same data centre).  Testing this sort of thing with 
high latency and jitter is understandably hard, but I didn't see a good reason at the time why it should have been so 
badly out with good underlying network characteristics.

I've seen speedtest.net<http://speedtest.net> give results significantly greater than the physical bw of the client's 
network link.
