    50 MBps = 50 Megabyte Per Second.

    1000 Megabyte = 1 Gigabyte.

    All depends on where you're downloading the file from.
    If you're downloading torrents it could take awhile or could be done quick.

    50Mbps = 5,120Kb/s (5MB/s) Download & Upload Speed... So a 1Gb file should take less than 45 Minutes to download

    Your 1Gb files should take you 15 minutes give or take...
    As FiOS rolls out here Early 2013... Speeds will range from 50Mbps (5MB/s) - 300Mbps (30MB/s)... Can't wait...
