What kind of residential service is that from?  Only a very limited  
few regions in the US have deployed cable modem systems that will go  
that fast, and/or you're on something like Verizon FIOS (fiber  
optic).  Nothing in the ADSL "realm" even comes close to those numbers.

Otherwise, I'd say the number is inaccurate... or the result of  
something being cached.   Being that you're a 2-lander, you might be  
one of the lucky few, though...

Try www.speedtest.net also, it's a little "smarter" than Speakeasy's  
tester, but does require a Flash-capable web browser.
