It's the number of users sharing your connection.

Basically, if you're on a 50:1 connection, it means 49 other users are sharing the same modem/router/connection at the ISP. Therefore, at peak times, your connection is divided between those users. If you're all downloading a lot of stuff, you'll notice it far more when shared with 49 other people, than if you were on a 20:1, where you're on with 19 other people.

You'll only notice it at peak times when everyone is downloading large files. In reality, it's not that noticeable for a light/average user.

You'll also only notice it if there are actually 49 other users around your area that are using the connection at the same time.

A ratio of 50:1 means that there will never be any more than 50 individual users on that connection at the same time. So unless you know for sure that there are that ammount of users around your connection area, it's unlikely you will notice any difference at all.
