My recommendation is always to determine the physical location of the speed test server. Find one that is in close geographic proximity to the other end of your satellite connection. That way, speed test results are more a  measure the satellite segment of the path - and less influenced by terrestrial bottlenecks within the Internet itself

I have used www.testmy.net for a long while. It appears to report accurate results for satellite users vs other sites that report impossibly high upload/download results.
