My results, FWIW, Rogers Express (8/512, believe it was 6/512 when I 
first signed up, going to 7/512 automatically not long after, and 
advertised as 10/512 by Roger's today):

Last test (and what it was a few seconds ago)

   7.47 Mbps (8+) download speed
513    kbps (512) upload speed

Quality of Service: 73% (80+) <- ???, not likely QoS
RTT(W): 20 ms <- round trip time? (w?)
Max Delay: 8 ms
Test type: socket download, socket upload

Advanced Tab:

Quality of Service: 73%
RTT(W): 20 ms
Max Delay: 8 ms
Max Route Speed: 26.2 Mbps (32) <- interesting, presumably max. 
wire/equipment speed, if I had ultimate service (50/2) [faster than 
max route speed?], for ONLY $53+tax/month more, or ~$720/year.
TCP Forced Idle: 0% <- Interesting, non-zero on torrents / https?
Test type: socket download, socket upload
