I'll sign too.

The 98th percentile latency is of-cause nice, but we should remember to
keep our request simple.

"Dear speedtest.net/speedof.me please add a latency test, that measures
latency during the upload and download test-runs."

That will be the first baby step, don't make it too complicated for
them, afterwards we can start explaining if we want min/max or 98th

They already have a ping facility, which the only run _before_ starting
the test run.  Thus, they should be-able to easily adapt their existing
"ping" code to measure during the test-runs... give then something they
can easily do.
