Hi , How do u people Check ur download speed? like " downloading..... somefile.exe @ 24kBps........"most users get confused by the speed shown in the save window or the download managers. The Speed Quoted by the service provider is in kbps - "Kilo Bits Per Second" where as the download managers show in KBps - "Kilo Bytes Per Second".1 Byte = 8 Bits1 kilo bit = 1024 bits1 Kilo Byte = 8 * 1024 Bits = 8192 bits256 Kbps = 256 * 1024 bits = 62144 bits62144 bits / 8 = 32768 Bytes / 1024 = 32 KBpsdo the math and chk it out

Dont worry.As said before, the 200 and 256 are Kilo Bits per second.The speed you see is kilo bytes per second.
1 kilo byte = 8 kilo bits to technically you are getting almost the same speed as the others.

People are confusing kbps with kBps... BSNL is offering 256kbps which is 32kBps and I generally have a steady connection of 30kBps (240kbps) and above which is very fair, considering that with VSNL on a rated speed of 512kbps, I could never go beyond 38kBps (384kbps)... atleast BSNL does give the speed which it promises :)
