Average Download Times

Download times on the Internet can vary widely, depending on modem speed, distance to the remote site, traffic on the Internet at the time of the transfer, phone line conditions, and capability of the remote site. Keeping that in mind, here is a tool for estimating how long it might take to download a file using a variety of connection options. A realistic value for normal internet usage (average filesize less than 25KByte) is 50% overhead.
Note: 'Cable Modem' speeds vary between 64 Kbps & 2 Mbps depending on service
