What is This tool?

It is a free online file download time calculator that you can use to find out roughly how long it will take for you to download a file of a certain sized based on your connections speed.

It could be used for a variety of different purposes. For example, if you are shopping for a new broadband provider and want to know roughly how quickly you will be able to transfer data for the money.

I must stress that this is an estimator. You are unlikely to be able to utilise all of your bandwidth for a whole range of factors. It will certainly put you in the ballpark though.
