ADSL and a 10.0 Mbps connection

I have ADSL and I have a 10.0 Mbps connection. What does this mean?
The maximum data transfer rate from your ISP to your Computer. It stands for Megabytes per second. However, 10 Mbps sounds like the connection from your NIC card to the LAN interface on your ADSL modem or router. Generally, ADSL does not connect at over 1Mbps. Therefore, the 10mbps would be the maximum data transfer rate (in bytes per second)from you computer to your adsl modem/router.
