Considering my ISP sets an IP profile at 96.mumble% of line rate, I
don't know whether the tester measures IP rate, or TCP rate, and I did
the test over WiFi rather than Ethernet, the result is not a million

Download 66.7 Mbps
Upload 18.6 Mbps
Latency 19.3 ms

I find testing on any speed-checker via WiFi removes about 10% off the
speeds (compared with a wired connection) Even when right next to the
router. Encryption overheads ?
