    2Meg = 200Kbps. Kilo bits and bytes. a bit is smaller a byte is larger.

    What you pay for in terms of line speed is rated in megabits per second (mb/s or mbps)
    When talking about actual download speed is it rated in kilobytes per second (kB/s or KB/s)
    There is 8 bits to 1 byte, therefore the max theoretical download speed on your 2mbps line would be 250kB/s, after you factor in overhead protocols and line quality and what not the actual speed will be slower.
    235kB/s is actually quite good.
