      Feeling daft asking - 10mb line why only 1mb download?

      I'm sorry if this is the sort of question that makes you bang your head against the wall, but can anyone tell me why with a 10mb Broadband max from Sky why my maximum broadband download is 1mb (just over or under)?

      Sure you're not mixing Megabits (Mb) & Megabytes (MB)?

      There's roughly 8 megabits to a megabyte.
      A synch speed of 10Mbps would equate to approx 8.5mbps throughput speed.

      Which would be about 1MBps.
