Even if we talk about download velocity, our ISP velocity is just a small part of the equation. Of course DreamHost won't let us download at 10 mbps, because their connection don't allow that usage for each user.
From all http servers I've downloaded until now, I think the maximum I got was 900/1000 k/sec even with 24 mb/sec connections, and theoretically I should get much more
If we speak about uploads, things are similar. Each web server can't allow us to use all that velocity that ISP's announce.
