www.speedtest.net - use this to check your Broadband Speed or the Speed
that you signed for with your ISP.

http://www.numion.com/calculators/units.html - use this to convert if

There is a difference between 1 MB/Sec and 1Mb/Sec.
1 Byte = 8 bits.

The speed you are seeing is the connection speed of your machine and your
router/whatever device you are using to connect to the internet.

It has nothing to do with your speed that you signed for with your ISP.
