I am travelling abroad and got a 3G connection with actual speed of about 29000 Octets / second (using perfmon and testspeed).
When downloading a youtube video with a software perfmon shows it uses the full speed.
But why does it take many hours to just download 300 Mo of such youtube whereas 29000 = 29 Mo / s and so it should take only a few seconds ?
So I don't understand what this "speed" practically mean. Can you explain ?
Update: the mobile operator advertise 250 Kb/s so why do I get only about 29000 byte / second (I said Octet because it's french unit but it's about the same order as byte).
