Is Verizon lying to me?

After fighting tooth and nail with Verizon, I FINALLY had FiOS installed today. Great. Awesome. Loving it. I got the 25/15 Mbps package, but speedtest.net seems to be struggling to get to 3 Mbps. Verizon's own speedtest utility tells me that I'm getting the right speed-ish.
What gives? Is Verizon lying to me about my speed, or is speedtest inaccurate for some reason?
FWIW, browsing has felt noticably snappier than with my 15Mbps Comcast connection, but I haven't had any large downloads or torrents to really test it out on.
It's just weirding me out.
