[Southeast] Someone explain this to me?

Why everywhere I go to do a speed test I get 35Mbps. If I download I hit 7.5MB/sec .

because networking bandwidth is measured in megabits, downloading is measured in kilobytes or megabytes.

Mb = megabits
MB = megabytes

Easy way to convert it is go to google and type "35 megabits to megabytes" and it'll do the conversion for you.

Yes it gets confusing..

Sounds like your on the 75/35 tier, that's a normal download for that tier

I am actually 50/25, but FIOS always give you more speed when you bundle with TV.

Quickest way to convert MBs to Mbs is to multiply by 8, so your speed is around 60Mbs which is about right for a 50/25 + fluff.
