That's their "theoretical speed" it all depends on phone line quality and how far away you live from the telephone exchange

OMG-^

I can go above 500-600k/s downloads but that's if I use popular torrents (ie: Lost season 5 eps or SGA season 1 eps).. 8-[

Anyway for curious people about which countries got what...
http://speedtest.net/global.php#0

Seems that eastern europe countries are doing well. My country is only ranked 20 on downloads >< and with speed I got I'm equal to 45th country on the list...

i went looking around and found this

"Generally - Bits are used to talk about data transfer rates (1 kilobit = 1000 bits), while bytes are used to talk about storage size calculations (1 kilobyte = 1024 bytes). So when your Internet provider offers you a 1Mb connection, its megaBits not MegaBytes. So for a rough guide of how MUCH you can download, divide by eight. i.e. 1Mb speed = 128KB of data. "
