How are you measuring 11 megabits per second from download? Steam and XBox do not express download speeds in megabits but in megabytes. MBps and MB/s means megabytes. Mbps and Mb/s means megabits. They are not the same thing. There are eight bits in a byte; ISPs give speed in megabits while actual downloads are given in megabytes.

Then you need to provide a screenshot of where you're getting this 11 something.

This is a hobby that requires precision. Whether your download was in megabits or megabytes is the difference between something being wrong and something working exactly as it should. Sometimes, getting a single letter or number wrong can be something that destroys a key component.

If you're going to get all hot and bothered by being asked to be precise, you're going to be hard-pressed to find anyone to spare the time to help you with your possible problem.
