I still have the result link for the earlier one:


Here’s another result without using the webcache, but keeping everything else the same:


For context, this is through the PowerBook which is running cake, 8Mbps down and 1Mbps up.  This is somewhat less than the capacity of the link, but since it’s 3G it varies quite a lot anyway.

The number-one desirable feature is to carry on measuring the latency while the throughput test is ongoing.  This is relevant to anyone who wants to make a VoIP call or play an online game while using the connection for something else.  If you have several people in one household, it’s often hard to coordinate their activity to avoid such multitasking.
