What does 39Mbps mean if you try to draw data from BT's empty tank?

As a computer support person, I visit many peoples homes and experience many different connections. It is the ISP that determines how much data you can download and your connection speed is hardly relevant.

I was downloading updates at a clients home with BT infinity the download speed was 7.2 kbps. I logged in to my PC at home with 3.9Mbps SKY connection and started the same download to my PC the speed was 401kbps. I then logged on to a friends PC with 6.1Mbps Talktalk connection the speed was 590kbps.

This was the same update from the Adobe.com website in each case.

Is BT infinity a fraud?

What about the workers?

If the feds keep taking the people down how will I earn a living? 70% of my business is restoring PCs after their owners have infected them...........
