Good enough for me. Guess it could be a bit faster without Wi-Fi. Had pretty much the same scores in Finland as Ariete.

I have 1 Gbps symmetric at home. Will post a pic

Really helps with anything internet related, obviously. I find the majority of sites for downloading won't even go past 80 Mbps let alone a full gig, obviously due to upstream architecture.

Isn't that from a university server? What is your home speed, if so?
