    How can the various internet speed test show such high speeds when my
    ipad or laptop is only connected at 3-5 Mbs? Shouldn't the slowest link
    throttle the overall speed figures to at least that or below that level?

    1. Your wireless connection uses data compression;
    2. The Internet speed test uses data which can be compressed.
