Help With Downloads Speed

Hey when I use the speedtest .net site it's says that my download speed is 1.3 mbps but when I download a game (not torrent) i only get a max speed of 133 Kbps. Why is that??

  1. When you download a game you are being told the speed is 133 KBps (bytes per second), not Kbps (bits per second). There are 8 bits per byte, but in the real world of Internet speeds the conversion is closer to 10:1.
  2. So am I getting the right speeds??
  3. Yes! And this confusion comes up all the time ;)
