I usually see 4-5 KB/s (that's capital B, for bytes) when downloading
files.  Right now Pppstatus is indicating a "top speed" of 9.7 KB/s, but of
course that's just the transient maximum when receiving highly compressible
data such as Web pages.  Compressed files, which are what one usually
downloads, can't be compressed.
