    The speed test should be a good indication of download speed as they dkwnload/upload a file good enough. From reading the forum, it seems that people get what they pay for +10% or so speed.

    Hi Kate!
    The rule for real download speed is quite simple but i wont go into unnecessary details. There are 8bits in a byte, therefore speed/8. So 120mbits/8 is 15 Mbits/seconds in reality. Also varies depending on the server you are downloading from. Hope it helps
