Results from speedtester

I did a speedtest at click here and I wonder whether anyone can tell me what the results mean (pasted below)

Does this mean that the download speed should be close to 8128 kbps but we are getting just below 3000 kbps?

And what does "IP profile for your line" mean?

Many thanks!

Your download speed is not the same as connection speed, your profile dictates your maximum speed, which is 7150kbps, I would have thought you should be getting closer to that depending on contention for your line. I'm sure others more knowledgable than me will add to this.

Anyone else who can explain a bit more?

Quite a bit to read, but take a browse through click here
I had lots of bb problems and received some great advice and links.

Just for info. I don't think that the speedtester you've listed works with LLU connections.
