How can the various internet speed test show such high speeds when my  
ipad or laptop is only connected at 3-5 Mbs? Shouldn't the slowest link  
throttle the overall speed figures to at least that or below that level?

Perhaps...
1.  Your wireless connection uses data compression;
2.  The Internet speed test uses data which can be compressed.
