    definately hacked or shopped. Especially with that upload to download ratio.

    ISP's have been known to do some sort of bandwidth filtering when it comes to speedtest sites like this, to make themselves look good.

    I'm on a shared cable connection, so it differs a lot from time to time. The fastest I've got was downloading with 8MB/s, which would be around 70Mbit/s or something.

    Here's one with a different speed tester, taken right now so should be about the same, but isn't:

    70+mbs? That doesn't seem right.

    And 70mb/s seems unreal. That would be wicked fast. I highly doubt you have it, (no offense).

    Doubt away guys. As I said I'm on a shared connection, as a student on the network run by the Danish Agency for Science, Technology and Innovation under the Ministry for Science, Technology and Innovation. They have some serious backbones and when you hit a low period, you get insane speeds.
    It's not like it's in a regular apartment from a standard ISP.

    I am relaxed, I just wanted to clarify.
    All I can say is what I saw, and that was around 8MB/s and once in a while it paused a download to let my harddisk save the cache. It happened during holidays, so most people wouldn't have been on the network, and the network is quite capable.

    The UK average broadband speed is a pathetic 2 or 3 MB/s. Whereas the rest of the developed world generally has much faster. Japan has an average of like 70MB/s.
