Just a thought... the real world isn't exactly like the test world...

There could be something in the network latency in the real world that is
limiting your throughput beyond what you are setting. There could be limits
at the ISP, or congestion that are causing some of the issues.

Would like to know what you are using to test though and where you got it -
looking for some good speedtest tools that don't rely on a third party.
