Hughes net vs. DSL? hughes net claims download speeds as fast as DSL, but on closer...?

    Millibytes? MB/S... I think you're getting all kinds of terms confused, and that's confusing you. I seriously doubt your current DSL is 10mb/s. That's probably just the speed of your LAN, but not the actual internet speed. Use this website to test your real internet speed:

    BTW, the correct terminology is either "MegaBITS per second" or "MegaBYTES per second"... usually the former.
