Default Wierd internet speeds.

I have the Charter 3mbs, just recently as in today my download speeds went up from 300kbs to downloading at 600, I also did a speed test from speakeasy and it shows i have 6mbs internet when i really have 3. Im not complaining but they better not charge me extra or something.

check your service provider's website. they may have upgraded the service from 3 megabits to 5 megabits

mine recently upgraded mine from 5 megabits to 7 megabits

Time of day can also matter too. Less people on = more room for you.
