      Hi, maybe its the Namesco site, have you tried a few different sites? www.speed.io I find to be the most accurate.

      Hi as Mark O has said about speed testers you can also try this Skyuser speed tester http://www.skyuser.co.uk/speedtester/ plus Broadband Speed Checker - THE UK's No.1 Broadband Speed Test and thinkbroadband :: Broadband Speed Test a good idea is to use more than one speed tester so you can see if there is any difference
