It's about eighteen times as fast as The TGV (train)
In other words, the speed of The TGV (train) is 0.056 times 0.9690 miles per second.
(Train à Grande Vitesse) (for SNCF TGV Réseau, a.k.a. "Network" model, a.k.a. TGV-R) (maximum speed)
The TGV Réseau sets have a top speed of 0.055 miles per second. The train is capable of travelling the 425 km (264 mi) distance from Paris to Lyon in East-Central France in about two hours.
It's about twenty times as fast as a Helicopter
In other words, 0.9690 miles per second is 19.80 times the speed of a Helicopter, and the speed of a Helicopter is 0.0505 times that amount.
(for AH-64A Apache, a.k.a. Hughes Model 77) (maximum cruise speed)

It's about twenty times as fast as a Skydiver (headfirst)
In other words, the speed of a Skydiver (headfirst) is 0.045 times 0.9690 miles per second.
(Head-to-Earth orientation or standing, average conditions, terminal velocity)
A head-to-Earth or standing-oriented skydiver's terminal velocity assuming average conditions is about 0.045 miles per second. In a typical jump from 3,900 m (13,000 ft), a diver in this orientation will be in freefall for 46 seconds.
It's about one-twenty-fifth as fast as a Meteor
In other words, the speed of a Meteor is 27 times 0.9690 miles per second.
(formally Meteoroid or meteorite, depending on the context; a.k.a. "shooting star", a.k.a. "falling star")
Small meteoroids enter the Earth's atmosphere at speeds between 6.90 miles per second and 45 miles per second, depending on their size. The fireball effect, known as ablation, ceases once the atmosphere has slowed the meteoroid to a velocity of about 1.70 miles per second.
