More likely the download was continuing without updating the number of minutes remaining and when the software caught up with itself it suddenly had an apparently high speed because it hadn't been counting properly.

You aren't going to get a 50 Megabit connection on a standard phone line where you've usually got a 1.2 Mbit speed. It is possible to get times when your connection goes a bit faster - DSL is shared so if the other users on your connection aren't using it you will see an occasional boost, but you ain't going to get a 40x improvement.

Even BT only claim "up to" 20 Mbit and probably less than 10% of customers can achieve that!

Don't doubt you can download at 6mb just saying the figures from speedtest don't match up but thats usually because it's soo inaccurate.
