56k modem at 250k

Many of the "line monitor" things use a crude averaging
system, the displayed transfer speed starts very high
and will slowly approach a realistic speed by the end
of a large file.
With smaller files the displayed speed may be way off.
However you did say 6Mb file? I would expect that to take
a LOT more than 6 minutes.
I think the one fact you CAN rely on is that a 56k
modem is NOT going to give you 250k download speeds.
