You may want to verify with your ISP (Internet Service Provider) what your download/upload speeds should be, then maybe troubleshoot the issue with them (after all, there may be something wrong on their end and not yours ;)).

You could also try getting other opinions (using other speed tests). Just Google for 'broadband speed test' and you'll find all sorts to choose from.

Are you sure you're not confusing bits & Bytes?

The speed test measures your connection in kbps (kilobits per second)
Downloads are usually indicated in KB/s (KiloBytes per second)

With your connection speed at 935 kbps, 118 KB/s is about right.
