If you can download a game off steam at 430 KB/s, that means you're getting just shy of 4 mpbs from your internet.
Thanks - that makes me feel a little better.

I thought the difference between a KB and MB should have been like 1000 times more so knowing that 400 kbs is roughly 4 mps means I'm getting what they say I should get (well they say 5 mps but that's sales hype I rarely get over 4 mps on Speednet).
