Hello,

The speed your getting is correct. Most of the service providers gives more

download speed to the limited users so that the users can finish their

download limit very soon and then they can charge you per MB. Your bandwidth

is 512Kbps. So download speed will be 512/8=64KBps. So you are download

speed vary at 64KBps. Sometimes you will be able to get higher than 64KBps

due to bursting. The upload and download speed is decided by your service

provider.

Good Luck.
