No, but the point is - whatever your method of measuring speed - that if your initial connection is slow you cannot tx/rx data fast regardless of any external conditions. A mythical condition could exist where every external connection is 1000Gb[1], but it your connection is 1Gb (1000 times slower) that's all you're going to get, and that is where the UK system is failing consumers. More like BroadBLAND Britain than Broadband.
