40Mb connection but download speed 5Mb/s?

I've looked through the forum for answers, but can't make a decision if this is wrong or not.

Speedtests (BT etc) show a 40-50Mb/s speed but my download manager shows a much slower throughput of never more that 5.1Mb/s.

Am I missing something or just plain dumb :-)

Cheers

Fix
Is the download manager reporting speeds in MB/s rather than Mb/s?

1 Byte = 8 bits
I must have been really bad in a previous life as this was my 3rd ISP in a row that used lithium.
Now you're stuck with me because my new ISP doesn't run a forum Cheesy
