This basically means that the association has the capability to download files at 100kb/s (the download speed is 1/10th of your extensive association speed). To test what speed you’re getting to your computer, you should Google “Broadband Speed Test” and then click on the first link. Run the test on the website and if it’s below your expectations, you should experience your Internet provider.
