i don't really understand the speedtest thing but its not unusual for your ip to change if your internet service provider (ISP) uses dynamic ip's . maybe your ISP is having trouble (since the slow down)
you could call them to find out. maybe speedtest server buggy. if you feel your computer has been compromised , scan for

The server could have possibly been down. Did you try pinging it?
Are you behind a router?

when you do speedtest does it correctly identify your isp
you can also check ip's at
to see if they belong to your isp
it sounds to me like your isp is routing traffic to another server for whatever reason. maybe the server you normally use has been attacked and they don't want to admit it to customers.
put your mind at ease and do a virus scan and run the free rootkit scan

I don't know what I was thinking when I said to ping the address. That's basically what Speed test does. You can
Pathping which will show you how you're being rerouted
