Where is the server located to, and is the server hosted by you? If its hosted by you then you'll want to have a good upload speed, the better your upload speed is the better the ping will be. Remeber what ever you upload speed is will be the maximun someone can download from you.

So if you have a max upload speed is of 50KBytes a secound the maximun someone can download from you will be 50KB(ytes) per secound. No matter what the other persons download speed is.

Ping latency does not indicate in any way your apache performance, only the network speed/capability between the two machines (www.nwtools.com). If the server (nwtools.com) is geographically a long ways from you-ie hundreds of miles, then ~100 ms is a decent speed. You can run a trace route from the command line (in windows: tracert to see the exact path that traffic takes between nwtools and your server.

Download/Upload speed will also be bottlenecked by the network and will reflect the connection bandwidth, not the server speed unless you have some sort of bandwidth throttling. If this server is being hosted at a hosting company, then these speeds (13.9/3.5 KB/s) are dismally poor. In fact, I would only expect this sort of bandwidth if you are running a server at home on a dial-up connection.

Make sure you run the test many times at certain parts of the day to get a good sampling as these numbers can very.
