For 24/1 Mbps connection 16 Mbps download and 0.8 Mbps upload are common. The real speed depends on many things, for example from Finland to Melbourne Australia I get 1.16 Mbps download and 0.75 Mbps upload when tested with http://www.speedtest.net/
Speedtest allows to choose servers around the globe. Quite handy :)

I read a report last day showing the best connections in the world. Sweden and Japan are the best.

Interesting. I got a wireless connection and I just noticed that when Speedtest.net almost newer reports more than 5 Mbs it is actually more than 7 Mbs on average.

Looks like even on short distances the server has a significant effect:

When downloading multiple movies from youtube at the same time with Orbit, peaks go well over 11 Mbs. In theory max speed of the connection is 21 Mbp (3G) but getting out even 7 is good. Now my wireless is faster and even cheaper than wired connection. So, conclusion: dump the wired connection.
