Doesn't mean the actual transfer rate at that time which is what Firefox is reporting. Reply to sturm m 0 l bebangs September 23, 2009 10:15:04 AM Your LAN connection can handle speeds up to 100mbps. When your downloading something, Firefox says that it's currently downloading at 250kbps. Your internet speed depends on your ISP connection. You can ask them what's your current subscription speed.
