      Wacky Speed Results

      Hello all, this isn't a problem as such although it is confusing me.

      I've been running speed tests using speedtest.net and I am getting very high reuslts, especially according to the last time I spoke with Sky my line was capped at 7.5mbps.

      My most recent test is below.


      This has risen to as high as 30mbps, which completely confused me. I haven't experienced any super fast speeds while actually using my connection as far as I can tell.

      I have tried other speed checkers which give results at about 6mbps, which I'd expect really, but speedtest.net has been doing this for quite a while now.

      Hmmmm, anyone got any idea if that actually means anything to me, or is speedtest.net just broken?
