Let's clear this up.
Mb = Megabits
MB = Megabytes
Mbps and Mb/s are both abbreviations of Megabits per second, so are used interchangeably. (I'll use Mb/s in this explanation to make it more obvious)
A typical SSD will peak at a sequential read/write rate (claimed) of 500MB/s (MegaBYTEs), if we convert this to Mb/s, then we get a whopping 4000Mb/s, 4 times faster than a Gigabit connection over a local network.
The 14MB/s download speed (actual) you're getting from the ISP is translated to roughly 112Mb/s throughput, so faster than a "G" rated network (on a single channel), but still below the peak performance of an "N" or "AC" rated network.
The main benefit of having a faster network setup (wireless or not) is more closely linked to the benefit of moving files around when they're all linked to the same network connection, A gigabit network when performing at it's theoretical maximum (gigabit/1000Mb/s) transfer rate will typically be able to transfer files at the same rate as a mechanical hard drive is able to write data.
Hope this helps.
