That does look rather like heavy congestion either on the cabinet or the exchange.

The last few days I've been getting very strange results from the speed test on here, but trying several other speed tests and these seem about what I would expect.

Not changed speed test software.
No sign of congestion on links to and from us.

Things start to look bad with http://tbb.st/1513331666822166555 on 15th
Test on 12th was fine http://tbb.st/1513121996634224355

http://tbb.st/1513366069414326655 on 15th is good
http://tbb.st/1513527990715671055 is bad, the low number of points can be a symptom of high CPU load, or browser issues, or your PC is download or uploading something in the background causing issues.

As we do less interpolation and fiddling with samples these problems can sometimes be more visible on our tester

wired
but it does not make much difference as both usually run at the same speed

There are quite a few not recorded in my profile as I wasn't logged in.
It may be due to other traffic, but if I get one bad result I usually check for other traffic and try again, in this case I did a speed check as things where running slow, I then realised gf's laptop was updating, I then waited till this had finished before running further speed checks.
