    I find the final result rather suspect since I’m certain speedtest only starts testing after the DNS lookup. Did you run it more than once to filter for other possible traffic issues?

      Yes I got the same result as like yours if i run the test more than once. The developers have mentioned in the website that if we run the test more than once it will skew the result.

    Just installed and tried out the application and works great, and found l was able to increase my speed by 116.2% by using Ultra DNS so thanks SK and will be back! Great post! Can l make one comment on the code as a newbie be careful when copying and posting remove the sk@sk:~$ as it is yours and the $ is already in terminal when using sudo apt-get other than that marvelous!

    How does choosing a different DNS server make any difference to your bandwidth as shown in the speedtest.net screenshot?

      You need to open the link on the left-hand side marked download from and it will drop down, choose other and click it will find fastest for your particular server for downloading. You can decide to accept and suggest you test by opening a terminal and typing sudo apt-get update! It has worked for me every-time. Hope it works for you, let me know yes or no by adding a comment.
