October 2016 Update - For the most up to date speed test results using the fastest available servers for China check this blog page here.
I try to do the tests in the most fair way possible. I turn off all other programs that will use bandwidth and disconnect other devices from my network. When using the speedtest.net android app I disallow permission to know my location, this way it will connect to the server nearest to the VPN instead of my actual location.
I'm located in Zhuhai, China unless stated otherwise and my ISP is China Telecom 100M connected via WIFI.
Please run a test with the VPN you are using and and tell me your results in the comments section below. Don't forget to mention what city you are in, your ISP, VPN service, VPN protocol, etc.
If you are trying to figure out which VPN is the best to use in China check this page for more information.
