The kB/s data did not confuse me. What I found confusing was the comment that those values were "about right" for a 30/10 plan and that the OP was on a 30/10 plan by mistake. The 42.7/36.2 test result is clearly not 30/10 territory and customers will be delighted to hear that 27.7/9.67 is what they should expect.

Both kB/s (or MB/s) and Mb/s have their place - depends on what the test is for. In this case since the performance of the 100/50 UFB was the subject Mb/s would have been more appropriate. Perhaps the OP will change his SpeedTest settings for future results.  MB/s is appropriate for 'real world' checks as most data-file sizes are quoted in bytes.

Check out this for a funky speed test wish it was the other way around I am still waiting to get switched to 100mb down option. The Chorus guy that did my install came into my work and said it is a easy procedure that should be done same day.

That's a pretty interesting speed test. Are you sure it wasn't just a one-off test? To get a more accurate result you usually need to run at least 3 tests, which you then repeat across multiple times of the day.

As someone said about "Megabytes" /s (MB/s), is more practical when looking at file downloads, such as Torrent, Steam, or just downloading from a server. Though for speedtests the "norm" you generally see is Mbps, "Megabits per second". Just remember there are 8 bits to 1 byte :).

Enjoy your fibre once you get everything sorted out!
