Hmmmmm pinging a host wont always be a good way of finding out their speed. A ping sends SMALL packets of data to an ip address, which then sends them back. Since the data is small, even a host with only a 128k upload speed can send data packets back really fast.
like reocmmended, try downloading a file, if there is one available, and see what speed it goes.
