Desktop Speed Test – Week 3 Summary Table

Big changes in the results this week, with Inmotion Hosting rocketing to the top of the table. Last week Inmotion was a distant 5th, what an impressive improvement!

On the other side of the ledger, we have Dreamhost, who fell from 4th to 8th. Australia was not kind to Dreamhost, maybe a change to Vancouver next week will be more favorable.
