I wonder if their location detection isn't that good and that browsing youtube at work on fibre is skewing the results for your account.

8.63 for me. :)

I'm pretty happy with YouTube.

If you don't have a static ip address, it's possible the address you now have, may have been assigned to someone with a much faster connection some time in the past.
