    would having web pages up effect the results on speedtest?
    in my case that would be a firefox page with 5 tabs of anime
    a firefox page with 4 tabs of manga and 1 of tpu
    and a last firefox page with 3 random things

    it will affect the speedtest if any of the open pages are either downloading something like picture or is uploading any information.

    Do a speedtest with no internet using programmes running. This includes all firefox windows except the one with the speedtest and any torrent client etc.

    I have a 10mb connection and get anywhere from 8 to 9.3m. Depends on the quality of your ISP.

    Hybrid_theory and 3870x2 by those numbers do you mean 560kb/s, 800kb/s and 930kb/s

    5.6 means 5.6mbps. I'm quoted for 7. You can expect to lose 10-20% of your quoted speed. So you should get more. I was teasing the fact that Canadians can't get that kind of speed offering yet that's affordable. 16mbps down is about $80 a month or something.
