Download speeds way higher than expecting, over 1/2gbps?

I pay for the new 500mb down when i speed test on i usally get around 600-900mbs down, but sometimes when i test i can get easily over 1gbs and a few times over 2gbs. The last time i done a speed test was Friday and i had 2.4gbs download, does anyone know why this is? I live in Bristol if location makes a difference.

Sometimes your antivirus software causes false readings

And sometimes (judging by previous reports here) VM conduct short term network trials at higher speeds without publicity.  VM have previously trialled the Hub 4 up to 2.2 Gbps (although users concerned did know) so those sort of speeds are possible with a Hub 4.  But if you're using a Hub 3 then the numbers you're seeing can't be correct as it might scrape to 900 Mbps, definitely can't touch 2+ Gbps.
