Remember that the result of the speed test does not reflect your actual connection speed. When performing a speed test on an ADSL line, we have to take into consideration the distance from our ADSL line to the ADSL central. Therefore, the speed shown will not always represent 100% the speed of your connection. For 1mbs connections the average download speed is 800kbps whereas the upload speed is 220kbps, for 2mbs 1600-1700 kbps for download and so on and so forth for this type of connection. For 20mbs connection, the actual speed provided in UK does not go over 43% of the flow, that’s why a connection offering 8500kbps can be considered better that an average one.
