        if you are on 512, anything more than around 54 kb/s is impossible
        sometimes at the end of files, you can get empty packets which will appear to come in damn fast

              It seemed to get a better result going to Sydney rather than local Brisbane.

                    kilobit = kb
                    kilobyte = KB

                    "512 broadband" is 512 kilobits per second (kbps)

                    There are 8 bits in a byte. The maximum theoretical speed of a 512kbps line is 512/8 = 64 kilobytes per second (KBps).

                    Every packet sent has a few bytes here and there lost to things like headers (bits of information attached to a packet telling it where it came from and where it needs to go), encapsulation information, etc. While 64KBps is the theoretical maximum, you'd be unlikely to ever see more than 54KBps. The fact that you are getting 50KBps is pretty standard on a consumer-grade Layer3 DSL connection which is renowned for it's horrible latencies.

                      Yeah what he said adsl overhead is a bitch.

                      Lots of years ago when adsl was only in telstra's hands... i had a 512k account. I would top out at 55KB/s.

                            I was a network admin long before DSL was around mate. 64kbit/s ISDN was lightning fast compared to some of the connections that used to be prevalent in this country prior to that.
