Reading the many questions and answers posted here, internet speeds are often mentioned eg. 6.8 MBs. this seems to be an acceptable speed. However if I run a test at Speedtest.net my download speed is about 6.8 Mbs. Am I right or is my speed only one eighth of what could be classed as average. As you may guess I am not too well up on these things.
Thanks rdave13, after a very quick look am I correct that I am being confused by some people expressing speed as MBs. when it should be Mbs. I will read the article in depth and I am sure it will help.
I would suggest that you try at least one or more speedtest websites, if you want a more better idea of what your speeds are. Try the test over various times of the day, because this might show any bottle-necks or throttling back that might be happening.
You may find this website very informative, but be warned it can get rather complicated in parts, and you do need to look deep for some answers click here
