What do we mean by “speeds”?

When we are talking about internet speeds, we specifically mean how quickly can you download and upload data.

Data is measured in a unit called “bytes”, though we normally refer to data by the megabyte (1,000,000 bytes) or gigabyte (1,000,000,000) bytes.

So the unit used for measuring internet speeds is MBps, which stands for megabytes per second.

So internet with a higher MBps is able to download data faster.
