It's actually usually when your ISP is switching your plan over/alternating a service cable
for a few seconds, sometimes the lucky few minutes, you get a massive spike in Mbps. I once reached a peak download rate of 5 terrabytes a second for roughly 15 minutes. I've never downloaded that much porn before in my life.

I'll tell you why that's bullshit

On your PC, odds are your network connection is at best Gigabit (But you're probably using wireless anyway). Which connects to a switch/router, which is most likely only 100mbit. Which presumably connects to a ADSL2+ modem with a max throughput of about 30mbps (the internet connection is a complete assumption)

Your internet connection did not suddenly become over 1000 times faster than the fastest commonly available ethernet standard, Gigabit.

You may have seen "5tb/s" on your download meter onscreen but you sure as hell weren't downloading faster than some intercontinental internet links. It's not possible, the CPU in the modem, and in the router physically cannot process the information that fast. If the cables themselves were to even attempt to synchronize at that speed, the line attenuation would corrupt any data that would be sent.

NFI why the speed looks so high. Could be some Antivirus/proxy thingie screwing with the values. But It's nothing to do with " ISP is switching your plan over/alternating a service cable " that's just BS

To be fair, I've had a Spike like that, it last for all over about 2 seconds.
It was magical
