If you`ve signed up for a 2MB Broadband service that figure refers only to your connection speed, not your download speed. Next time you download something have a look at the `Transfer Rate`, that`s your download speed. At least that`s the way I read it. If I`m wrong, and I`ve no problem with that, then anyone who really knows the difference please explain it in one syllable words.
920kbps is a hell of a download speed , as said above , that is a connection speed , actual speed of downloads will vary , but a rule of thumb would be 60k/sec for 1/2 meg , approx 120k/sec 1 meg , 240k/sec 2meg etc. These speeds are a rough rule of thumb.
My understanding is that a webpage has to be downloaded to open. The speed at which this happens depends on the size of the webpage (this depends on the amount of graphics, etc), the speed of the internet connection, the server on which it is hosted and the size of the connection it has to the wider world. In practice with a lot of websites the difference isn't greatly noticeable. With broadband it all appears quick. It also depends on how busy the servers are. Hit a website at a busy time and it can take a while to download. A 2Mb connection service can give download speeds at up to 2Mb but this depends on distance from the exchange and how busy the lines are.
If I'm wrong on this no doubt someone will correct me.
