You're paying for 25 Mb/s(Megabits) from your ISP. Speed test shows Mb/s(Megabits). You're paying for 25 Mb/s(Megabits), and getting 27 Mb/s(Megabits). However, when actually downloading something, it's calculated in MB/s(Megabytes), not Mb(Megabits). Another way to calculate the ACTUAL download speed you're paying for is, (25 Mb/s / 8). Since there are 8-bits in a byte. So you're looking at 3.125 MB/s(Megabytes) download, which is correct. Also, go to speedtest.net, and at the top, click settings. Under "Speed Measurement", change it to Megabytes, click "Save", and rerun the test.

So like said it's all 8-bits to one byte which is confirmed by everybody else.
The speedtest does show speed boost which means you are getting more than you should. (Based on available capacity at a given time)

I would assuming you have a DOCSIS 2 modem which allows that type of speed but with a DOCSIS 3 modem you might get more (as channel bonding permits).

I pay 48 for 300 Gigabytes per month
@ 28 megabit internet.

Peaks at 65 megabits, and goes down to a low of 8 megabits usually on peak times.

MB (megabytes) does not equal Mb (megabits) so your speed is accurate. 25Mbps ~= 3MB/s

Speedtest.net measures megabits by default, and browsers usually show speeds in megabytes
