Since I got my 100mbit/s down and 25 up connection I noticed that some servers aren't even sending over a 30mbit/s. Is it me or have some of you the same issue?

    Of course. Plenty of sites are subject to speed caps enforced by their hosts or their hosts' ISPs. But there are countless other reasons.

    But then you may not be getting the speeds as advertised. You may get "upto" 100 Mbps

    For most sites it doesn't make sense to offer you more bandwidth than needed to load content faster than you can recognize a difference. A common problem with hipster sites is that they load from a hundred servers so latency or one slow element (mostly advertising) becomes a big problem.

    Yup. I have 1gb down/up, and I notice that the same thing happens. I am guess that some servers are on 100mb pipes, so ymmv.
