    First of all, I would like to remind you that an open Wi-Fi is a poor choice of location for doing anything sensitive online such as banking or even email (because so many services use email to reset your password). Unless you can set up a VPN or ssl connection, that is. About your speed. First of all, how are you measuring it? If you are looking at the speed of a download manager the speed achieved depends on both the manager used, and the mirror from which you are receiving the file. A download manager that I would recommend is Down Them All for firefox. But to achieve an accurate count of your speed, you should run something such as DSL speed test. ( This is by no means a comprehensive list of considerations, just the ones which I thought of right away.
