Default Download speed.

I have 2 computers that use DSL prodided by verizon. One machine is a win98 SE OS and the other is a win 2000 server OS. On the 98 machine my download speed is 478 kilo per second and the other machine is 528 kilo per second. Is that about right or should I be getting better results?
