It's probably pay to read the large number of virtually identical threads on here that discuss this very issue.

Asking people to post speed tests results to "compare them" is a bit like asking people to cut pieces of string and then commenting that every piece of a different length. DSL speeds will vary depending on your distance from the cabinet or exchange, and more imporantly, the quality of your internal home wiring and whether you have a master filter installed.

International speeds can also be affected by your operating system and the latency which can affect TCP/IP throughoput.
