Ever felt it is crawling like snail ? How to find out what your exact speed is ?

A connection is called broadband if the speed is above 256 Kbps or 32 KBps. Internet Service Providers (ISP) prefer Kbps as it looks like a higher speed. When we download, internet download managers show speed in KBps. 1 KBps = 8 Kbps. At time, ISPs fail to give promised speed. To check the current speed, take one of the many reliable speed tests. Also a download from Microsoft will also give an idea of download speed. To check, simply click the following links

I have a 256 Kbps unlimited connection. Here is my speed results

my results are
download=1.09Mbps
upload=0.87Mbps
I dont know the reason why my speed seems to be slow many of them said that if Cable Internet services share bandwidth with satellite Internet access.
If there are many subscribers using that same bandwidth, it can slow down the connection.
kindly guide me how to solve this problem .

Sure. Please mention

1. ISP

2. Plan and promised speed

3. Speed test result from speedtest.net and after downloading any file from Microsoft.
