      As the max connection on unlimited is 20meg I would suspect they are incorrect. Probably some kind of buffering error at the speedtest site. To get a more accurate result try a large fttp download such as a linux file and see what that maxes out at.

      Download Ubuntu | Ubuntu
      Select uk download site, click download then save and see what the transfer speed maxs out at.
