The way I understood it from my service provider is that they rate the speeds sold to you in kilo/mega BITs, where when you are downloading, it is rating the speed of the download in kilo/mega BYTES. So figure your speed you pay for divided by 8 is roughly what you are downloading.
But that was what I was told at least.
