A question about Speedtest.net

Hi Everyone,
How does Speedtest work? For example if i get a result of 100Mbps/down, did it really use that much bandwidth? I ask because I ran the test through a Cisco 3560 switch, and i set the bandwidth for only 1 Meg. But I still got a download result of 100Mbps.

Actually it may be more complex than that. I see that the show controllers utilaztion command displays as a percent. Is that a percent of the physical capability or a percent of the configured 'bandwidth 1000' command?

Any ideas?
