    Default Understanding internet speeds

    So I am trying to understand internet speeds and am having a heck of a time understanding it. Under my wireless network connection status it says my speed is 144.5 Mbps. So that is 144.5 megabits/second, correct? Meaning ~18 megabytes/second? So I should be downloading 0.017 GB/s which is ~1GB/minute. I am getting nowhere near that speed and I wouldn't expect to so where am I going wrong in my understanding? I appreciate any help I can get on this topic.
