slow connection, speed test shows routing through nottingham, i live in sheffield?

Connecting to web sites (such as google search) seems to take a while, when I run a speed test it tells me i'm routed through Nottingham, though I live in Sheffield? when I select a Sheffield station I get (usually) faster speeds the ping value rises to 20mS from 14.though!;  I've seen my service drop to 85Mbs and experienced issues streaming when trying to watch programmes (constant buffering) dropped connections etc. yet i'm constantly informed that the service is fine, no known issues? it's all a bit rich considering how much the service is costing me, had this account since is was telewest /blue yonder!! 😞

You’re not being “routed” through Nottingham it’s just connecting you to a speedtest server in Nottingham.

Are you using a wired or wireless connection?
