Is this a reasonable Upload/Download Speed?

Let me elaborate on what I am asking.

I have a 1000mbit/GiGE Connection and this is my speed. Am I getting what I am paying for?
You will have a hard time saturating a 1Gbps connection with any mainstream, Flash speed test like speedtest.net. Try downloading some very large files from a CDN network or well-connected hosting company, but keep in mind you're generally going to be able to download data faster than most servers are going to be able to deliver it to you.

What ISP in america has a damn 1GB connection.
It looks like he's running this test from a hosting company's network (ServerBeach). However, it's worth noting that a few very lucky cities in the U.S., like Chattanooga, TN, have private 1Gbps fiber connections available for $359 a month.
