The variables of download speed are almost innumerable. Where you are downloading from and what protocol are the most important.

Go here and see what the speed test says:


The speed test I tried that are based in India seem to inflate the speed I know my network is capable of. (I built the network I use when I was an employee of the isp I use now)

Where are you testing your download speed? This site is a great site. When testing your speed, try to always use the same server. That way if your numbers go up or down you are comparing them from the same server. After you do the test, there is a box in the center with the results. On the bottom of that box is a smaller box with the words "Copy Fourm Link" click that and paste it into your response please.

Just to make things clear...
Your browser reports speeds in KB/s, the speed tests report speeds in kbps.
1 KB/s = 8.192 kbps, so 15KB/s = 122.88kbps = 0.1Mbps
