You'll need to check your ISP's web site for that

It will always be many times lower than your maximum available download speed.

That 100KB/s is probably a false representation. When your computer connects to the FTP site and data starts transferring, there may be a delay before the calculated transfer rate is displayed. In the meantime, data has gone, and so the process calculates the total data transferred compared to the time when the display appears.

When everything is up and running, the display speed settles down to the true transfer rate.

Broadband is an asymmetrical signal, which means the upload and download speeds are different. Because 99% of all connections are for download, that's where your ISP (all of them) gives you the highest speed. Generally, look for an upload speed about 10% of the download speed. It's just the way it is. If you want higher upload speeds you'll need to get a fully digital (symmetrical) connection. Bring money.
