My D/L Speed has gone erratic?

OK I have just installed Win 8 and when I started use internet appeared to be faster than before with win 7, so did a speed check, previously I was averaging 8.2mb
broadband speed checker...= 7.95/34
speed test.....=9.54/37
my broadband speed test.....= 10.28/36
all were done within a minute...
Have to look in to whether win 8 has anything to do with my speed flux. Am running Chrome and the norm for CPU usage is around 30% not with win 8 using just 0.5%
Will keep update

Hi ZedinGrove,
Download speeds can vary, one of the main reasons other than your own connection is how busy the website is from which you are running the speeds tests and which servers are they are using.
The one we advise to use is http://speedtester.bt.com. Also if you are using wireless this can affect your speeds.
