When you are downloading a programme from the Internet how many KB/sec should the speed settle down at if my connection is 1Mb ADSL averaging out at around the 800+Kbps?

Many thanks.

On a "perfect" situaltion (the server you are downloading from has a good speed), you would get about 120kbs

The maximum possible is 125 KB/sec which is worked out by 1,000,000 divided by 8 (8 bits in a byte).

I usually connect at around 954 Kbps, which works out at around 119 KB/sec so your 'average' 800+ Kbps seems a little on the slow side!
