You totally missed the issue. The problem is the upload test itself is inaccurate because it stopped during testing and yet the upload meter shows it's still running. I've seen this kinda behavior before in speedtest.net and download.tm.net.my on international server wheres the meter is still running and yet my speedometer (client-side monitoring) shows zero activity.
Most speedtest only takes the average of the test, not the last speed it's stated in the meter. To get the most ACCURATE TEST, download a file, preferably from international server (Hotfile, Megaupload, Rapidshare etc) and see what your getting. My recommendation is to upload something to mediafire.com (allow multiple connections for free user, which is good) and then try downloading from them (using download manager). This will tell you the most accurate result for international server.
Why not local server? Who cares about local server. There's very little stuff hosted in Malaysia so its somewhat pointless. UNLESS you want to test for local cap speed, local latency or to make sure your line (physical wire or cable) is in good condition. If they are, then your local speed and latency should be good as well.
Lastly, don't trust them! Do you own speedtest with the method I mention above and see for yourself. It's not too difficult and or technical so anyone can do it.
Here is what i am seeing. Look at the blue d/l versus the red u/l. Also look at the data totals.
Download speeds are fine: 1.0 - 1.2 Mb/s. Uploads i see are 100-150 Kb/s.
How can the tm speed meter claim those upload speeds?

i think cloudnine means when he is testing against TM server, his NIC shows no activity...
but cloudnine, u have to understand that although ur NIC shows liek that, it does not mean that TM is cheating u..usually upload tests use small files to test..ur network activity only shows that ur PC has uploaded the file but it takes time for the file to reach the server and then to process and measure the speed...
Thanks. I think what I am finding is totally bogus is the animation of the upload dials. They bear no relation to the data uploaded, both in the size or the timing.
Just some fancy useless animation!This post has been edited by cloudnine: Dec 10 2010, 04:35 PM Attached thumbnail(s)
