      Can this be possible?

      I'm on the mid package, with a router reported sync speed of 7776kbps.

      My download speeds have averaged 5mbps or so, but this morning I managed 10434kbps on speedtest.net.

      How is this possible?

      It is not - try a different speed tester - they may well be mofiying that one or it has developed an error

      The latency value suggests there is a problem anyway and your upload speed looks wrong as well

      Having said that i've just tried it and it seems to be working ok for me

      I don't really trust that site for speed tests, I prefer this one http://www.speedtest.bbmax.co.uk/

      I find it a lot more accurate when I need a rough idea how the connection is doing but a good ftp site is the best indicator for a more accurate speed test try this one

      ftp://ftp.mirror.ac.uk/edunfs/mirror...4-bootonly.iso

      Some Advice.. Its always advisable to inform your old ISP as soon as you have migrated that you have moved.
