      Speed increased to 25-30mb on downloads

      My download speed has always maxed out at 18.5mb. Tonight my download speed has increased to 25-30mb from newsgroups.

      How is this possible on a 20mb max connection?

      Speed test never goes above 17.5mb......sits steady 24/7 at 18.5mb from newsgroups and until tonight has never been above that.

      Speed now back to normal.

      I have a screen grab at 36.7mb
