Wait a sec here. If my hard disk copies at a rate of 30-40Mb/s, what benefit do I get from 150Mb/s download speed?

 

I'd be surprised if your hard drive was that slow.  Most are upwards of 80MB/sec these days (that's megabytes, not megabits) which equates to 640Mbits as there are 8 bits to a byte.  Even a rubbish hard drive should be able to sustain well in excess of 150Mbit these days.

When I copy files it usually stays between 30 and 40 Mb/s. At least according to Windows.

best two speed test websites websites i have found

 

1. SpeedOf.Me is an HTML5 Internet speed test. No Flash or Java needed! It is the smartest and most accurate online bandwidth test.

 

2. http://testmy.net Simple, to make sure you're getting what you pay for. This speed test is useful if you feel a connection slow down or want to see how your Internet is performing. This isn't like any other broadband speed test. TestMy's proprietary method is proven to help identify issues other speed tests fail to detect. The TMN Speed Test shows your true speed.
