Default 35/35

Just had fios installed and have the 35/35 internet package. I'm slightly confused. When I use speedtest.net, my numbers (direct ethernet cable) are roughly 35/28. Wireless around 31/22. When I use cnet's speed test my connection speed is 1268.3 kbps. Am I mixing the speeds up and if I were to get a full 35/35 how does that translate into mega bytes per second? In other words if I was downloading a file that was 10 MB how long should it take.

Speed tests might not always give the whole picture. Speedtest.net for example might not run long enough to get the true upload (I have 25/15 provisioned at 25/25 and get the 25 down on speedtest but only get 20 up on speedtest).

About your question for converting Mbps to MB/s it's very easy. There are 8 bits in 1 byte (8 megabits in 1 megabyte, same concept). That known if you divide your speed by 8 you will get the MB/s it equals. So 35/8 = 4.375 MB/s so it should take you 2.3 seconds to download a 10 MB file.
