Most likely the speedtest testing site is hosted by the university itself, hence why you get such speed. One of the testing sites closest to me is hosted by the Uni here
shows it as 150 miles away. so i kind of doubt it. it is possible that the speedtest host is the ISP for the school so they are directly connected.
That could be it. I do remember I downloaded a Matlab ISO (~4.5GB) in about 3 minutes. That's not as fast as the Speedtest shows, but its still up there. When I get back on campus, I'll try a different server that's not in Chicago.
