Trouble understanding data rates

I’m having trouble understanding the network usage. For instance, I’ll have 80mb of network activity at a point in time but my DSL only handles 13 mega bits per second. How does this work?


Please check out this guide.

If you do a speedtest at what does it say your maximum speed is? You may not want to do this if you are a metered data plan of course.

Thx for the quick response. Speedtest shows 15MB upload.

The link really helped. The number I was looking for-bandwdith-is right there in the lower left corner.

Thanks much!
