Is this a good internet speed?
Download Speed: 2654 kbps (331.8 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 369 kbps (46.1 KB/sec transfer rate)
Latency: 138 ms

It depends on your location,
That is a good speed for a remote area, but sucks for a metro area where much faster cable and fiber plans are available.
For normal Internet browsing, email, etc. the high latency would not be noticeable. However, for online gaming it would suck, you want less than 100 ms and preferably less than 50 ms.
Internet speeds are measured in Mbps (Millions of bits per second), not to be confused with MB/s (Megabytes per second). You can measure your current Internet speed here. http://speedtest.net
Internet speeds and pricing vary greatly by geographical area. The speeds are slower and the prices are higher in remote areas because there is less competition to lower prices and there are fewer subscribers to share the costs of the equipment and service.
Average broadband speed in the USA is currently around 15.6 Mbps. http://www.fcc.gov/measuring-broadband-america/201...
Standard DSL is rapidly being replaced by newer, faster technologies. DOCSIS 3.0 cable Internet boasts speeds up to a blazing 305 Mbps in certain areas. http://isp1.us/blog/comcast-to-launch-ungodly-fast... Fiber optic ADSL2+ and VDSL products are also offered in excess of 300 Mbps in select locations.
You can even get 1 Gbps (1000 Mbps) Google Fiber if you happen to live in the Kansas city area. https://fiber.google.com/about/
Most broadband Internet services including cable, DSL and satellite are asymmetric. which just means that more of the bandwidth is dedicated to the download channel than the upload channel. For instance 20 Mbps download and 5 Mbps upload. This is due to the fact that most users download much more than they upload.

Yes latency could be a little better but your download speed is incredibly fast and I'm sorta wondering why your upload speed isn't faster cause mine is a lot after than the download speed but great connection for the Internet

No, that is relatively slow by most of today's services....
It is a typical low end DSL/ADSL service speed...
Your latency is quite high, not good....
