at my dad's

this is strange.... my dad said that AT&T is faster than comcast.... i think my dad is lying to me.... or it could be because there are.... 10+ computers hooked up to the same router...
Edit: i am starting to hate AT&T.... my internet keeps cutting out now...

I can't help but notice that compared to all the other scores, mine is unique in that my upload speed is faster than my download speed.  I wonder why?

You probably have SDSL (Symmetrical Digital Subscriber Line) broadband which offers the same upload speed as download speed. The most common type is ADSL (Asymmetrical Digital Subscriber Line) where the download speed is generally faster than the upload speed. SDSL is used more for businesses as a good upload speed may be needed. It's a bit annoying to have ADSL as you can't broadcast videos to websites such as Twitch.tv (At least that is my experience). Also if they don't give you enough upload speed it may make it difficult for you computer to relay information to servers or to try to upload data to the internet. So if you try to do cloud storage with ADSL, expect slower upload speeds than you would on a SDSL connection.

(yeah, 0 ping..)

note that our results vary by server; the closest one is bottlenecked on its upload, giving us a maximum dl speed of about half this, but a higher upload speed from 16-20Mbit/s

6 down, 1 up is the advertised speed. So of course what I get in reality is a maximum of a bit less than that.

It's the best service offered in this apartment complex, sadly. If I were even just across the street I'd be able to get something better >.>

Hm, actually it might be interesting to compare to what you're advertised to have

What we pay for is:

0.5 MB/s (4Mb/s) up
5 MB/s (40Mb/s) down

Interestingly we have gotten 12.8MB/s (102.4Mb/s) peak download rates from steam, (11 MB/s is more normal there) but for some reason no speedtest server ever manages to get that high

I am paying for 10mb/s down. .75mb/s up.
Last test was 9.9mb/s down. .74mb/s up.


Best download rate to date was a little more than 1.2 MB/s.
Most times it's less, depending on the site I am downloading
from.

I'm pretty happy with that.  At some point I'm going to try an ethernet cable here, because I hear the connection is gigabit if you find the correct jack.

To check your speed, go to the URL that Mylo mentioned at the top (http://www.speedtest.net/).  You need flash, I think, but otherwise its quite straitforward.
