Yes.

240Mb internet (note the lower case 'b') is 240 Megabit, which equates to (240/8)=~30 megabytes per second maximum.

Remember that the actual speed achieved will depend on the origin. In practice, I've found very few sites that can deliver more than 2-3 megabytes per second.

10/100/1000 is also Megabit – it means a card that can switch between 10Mb (1.25MB/sec), 100Mb (12.5MB/sec), and 1000Mb (125MB/sec).
