Downloads/Uploads speeds - what do they mean please?

Download 14.68Mbps
Upload 0.95Mbps

Could someone please explain to know-nothimg me if that is good, bad or average please

You need to contact your ISP to find out what Internet bandwidth you are paying for. This varies widely. Without knowing that it is impossible to say if your numbers are good or bad.

Upload speed will typically be much lower than Download so the ratio seems reasonable.
