Is an internet download speed of 220Kbps good enough?

I have an unlimited connection, which consistently offers 200Kbps+ speeds, or 1.7Mbps (mega-bits)+ speeds. It comes around to 1MB in 5 seconds. What are your internet speeds? Is my connection good, average, or below-par?

       For Kolkata, these speeds are just about the max. Unless, Saptashwa goes for a commercial connection, then that's double but is unnecessary and costly. For a guy who has the same connection, I think it's quite adequate for what we do daily. of course, we can't watch movies online without downloading them first. Streaming videos take a bit of buffering too. But beggars can't be choosers right especially here in our country.

    According to
    http://netindex.com/
    the average speed in India is around 1.58Mbps with a top speed of 2.86 in Aligarh. However, in the rest of the world this would be considered very slow. America and the UK average about 11, China 4.5. I've got cable broadband and average just under 50Mbps.

      I know that! But as I said, they should uncap it so that I (we) can enjoy the 3Gbps speeds that I once got for 1 hour.

    Assuming you live in India... This is average.
