Well that's a rather personal question, eh?

Monkey killing monkey killing monkey.
Over pieces of the ground.
Silly monkeys give them thumbs.
They make a club.
And beat their brother, down.
How they survive so misguided is a mystery.

Yes, 25 is actually pretty high end cable/dsl, at least for the States.

I have 20 down, 10 up.

Quote:Data transfer speed on the other hand is expressed in bits. In bit rates the abbreviations are as follows:

1 kbps = 1,000 bits per second
1 Mbps = 1,000,000 bits per second.
1 Gbps = 1,000,000,000 bits per second.
kbps (kilobits/sec) means thousands of bits per second
mbps or Mbps (megabits/sec) means millions of bits per second
gbps or Gbps (gigabits/sec) means billions of bits per second (where "billion"= 1,000,000,000.00")
tbps (terabits/sec) means trillions of bits per second (as in "terabit router" or "terabit speeds")
pbps (petabits/sec) means quadrillions of bits per second.
Examples:

"Gigabit Ethernet [1000Base-T] is capabile of speeds up to 1000 mbps (mega-bits per second), or 1 gbps."
"10Base-T ethernet operates at 10 mbps and uses baseband transmission methods."
"SATA II defines the architecture (SATA-300) for Serial ATA communications of up to 3 gbps."

25megabits per second theres 8 bits in a byte so in theory you could download 25/8 = 3.125 megabytes per second

i have 50mb and at good times i download at about 6100k a second from usenet, other times i can't even watch a friggin youtube video at 240p

i have only 6 mbps. Enough but could be better. In Germany standrad is 6 -32 mbps. Some cable-provider service 100mbps for a moderate price.

divide it with 8 and you got your mega BYTE per second Anon

DON'T PANIC!

RE: how fast is your internet? im getting 25 mbps with new service what does that mean ?
25 MBPS means 25 MegaBits Per Second.

[A megabit is basically a megabyte] (Ignore that, appears I'm wrong).

Up means 'upload', it's how fast you can send information out (or 'up' to the server).

Down means 'download', it's how fast you can receive information ('down' from the server).

A server is basically a large, dedicated computer designed for handling online information.

Speed wise, 25MBPS is pretty good. If you don't notice any delays in loading/playing youtube videos, then it's all good.
