I have BSNL Dataone Home 900 UL Plus broadband connection with 256 Kbps (Kilo bits per second) bandwidth. Can someone tell me that here "K" i.e. Kilo in Kbps stands for 1024 or 1000. :unsure:

I am asking this because in computer's terminology "K" stands for 1024, but most of internet speed testing sites uses 1000 for "K" (Kilo).

Thanks......

Mahendra :)
