I get the same issue. Download speeds are great. Upload works on other browsers but everytime with brave it produces a socket error.

It’s a shield problem, you need to turn the shields off for speedtest.net, once you’re in the site, click on the brave icon and turn off shields, it will turn off the shields for that site only. I have ublock Origin installed on the browser as well, helps to block ads and stuff on a site where I have to turn off shields.
