We're connected with 3Mbps DSL connection and I am wondering what would my actual download speed be?

If I'm going to download something at off-peak hours, in the early morning, should I be expecting 300KB - 375KB per second download? Or much lower?

You are getting what you are paying for. With DSL there is no peak times or usage since it is a dedicated non-shared line.

You can perform speed tests at various times of the day via http://www.speedtest.net

I'm running a test a while ago before I posted this and the result ranges from 1.5Mbps - 2Mbps.

Distance will degrade speed as well, the further you are away from the server the longer it takes for you to reach it.

Our ISP isn't really miles and miles away from us. Anyway, thank you for your answers. I will still be running a test after everyone's done using the computer.
