Normally, we calculate internet speed by dividing it by 8. So if you have 1 Mbps, your actual download speed will be 1024 / 8 = 128 kbps.How can I find out my internet speed?
Go to the Speedtest website (See Resources). Click on the star on the map that is closest to your current location. Wait a few seconds to a few minutes for the speed test to run. The site will automatically test your download and upload speed and then display the results.
