      Encrypted upload on sky faster than unencrypted??

      I just happened to test my connection speed (on a few different sites). give or take a little i get 60ms ping, 3.5Mbps download and 0.35Mbps down. when I run a fully encrypted VPN service and do the same speed tests i get 65ms ping, 3.5Mbps download and 0.65Mbps upload.

      I have an idea what is happening here, but i could just be paranoid. any ideas - is this traffic shaping in action, or merely the result of slightly different internet protocols?

      there is NO traffic shaping (wonder how many times it has to be said before it's believed)...

      could be down to all sorts of things, protocols is one to consider...
