Is this speed test accurate???

So I just had VS2 installed today and ran the google speed test to see what type speed I would have. I have the bronze 12mbps unlimited plan. I guess my question is, do these results appear accurate, or should I disregard this test? If so, can someone point a tech dummy in a direction of a simple to use app/website? What is making me question the validity of the results is the latency. In my very limited knowledge, I thought satellite latency was always in the 100s? Thanks!

Google speed test doesn’t show the correct ping. Most people use speedtest.net

Testmy.net. and satellite latency is always going to be 600ms+.
