    mbps is megabits per second. MB/s (megabytes) is mbps/8. It's only acceptable use is when advertising internet speeds to look super fast.

    1 megabyte per second = 8 megabits per second. So your 1-2 megabytes per second is 8-16 megabits per second, which sounds about right, no?

    Certain websites will only let you download files at a certain rate. Try downloading something from MediaFire and then the same download from another website to see what I mean.

    You got it on the money. I was glad to see someone else said it; I was hoping I wasn't the only one who knew.
