You can never get faster EFFECTIVE download speed, than the weakest
link along the route. On the other hand, the measured speed may be
that of a link faster than that, meaning, that the only TRUE measrue
of download speed is the total data downloaded divided by the total
time taken for the download.

To test what your ISP's best bandwidth is you have to arrange for a
connection as close as possible to yours, that has the same supposed
speed, and can provide a download large enough to time.
If possible TWO suchj servers, one serviced by your ISP, one serviced
by some other ISP.
