Re: [Speed Issues] Not getting anywhere near my advertised speed Bit-Byte confusion?
Speed tests measure speed as bits per second; noted as *bps.
Download managers generally report speed in Bytes per second; noted as *Bps.
There are eight bits in a Byte. Make sure you are not confusing the two. For 25Mbps I would expect the maximum download speed to be ~3.125MBps. Because of unpredictable variables between your Internet connection and your source's Internet connection, getting 2.5MBps down is doing reasonably well for a 25Mbps connection.
