1. Is it DSL (down the phoneline)? The further away from the telephone exchange you are, the slower the speen

2. It's the avrage download speed that you get for downloading ; it's normal for this to be much lower than the speed that your connection is

3. KB = Kilobytes (1024 Kilobytes in a megabyte, 1024 Megabytes in a gigabyte (GB) and so on. KBPS (Kilobits per second) is the amoubt of KiloBits your modem (the thing your computer uses to connect to the internet) can transfer in a second. Kilobits and kilobytes is the same.

4. Have a nice day, and if you need more help feel free to make a new post and we'll sort it out.
