The speed test was accurate. Your download speed is 256 kbps (Kilobits
per sec) and the transfer speed that you get is 32 KBps (KiloBytes per
sec). Since 1 byte contains 8 bits, both your figures are accurate.
They differ only in units of measurement.

If you're wondering that 256 / 8 should be 36 KBps, then that slight
difference is due to network overhead.

If he's wondering why 256 / 8 = 36, he'll be even more confused by the fact
that 8 * 36 = 288
