Friends.... I guess most of us are already on the 2 Mbps bandwagon & have also experienced the zooming speeds. So share the download speeds which you are mostly getting nowadays.

No, it's not always KBps or Kbps.

KBps = Kilobytes per second.
Kbps = Kilobits per second.
1 Mbps = 1000 Kilobits per second BUT 1 MBps = 1024 KBps.
That's the basic difference between bits and bytes.
So to calculate the relation between b and B, you always have to start from bits and bytes.
And 1 byte = 8 bits.


Therefore,

256 Kbps = 32KBps (That's the standard that most browsers, p2p clients, and download accelerators use).
2 Mbps = 250KBps (Not 256 KBps).

Apoorv is absolutely right. My only mistake was it shud hv been KBps instead of Kbps. Sorry for tht. The explanation given by him are standard Internet metrics. Your Internet Bandwidth in Kilo bits per second (Kbps) divided by 8 is what is shown in Kilo Bytes per second (KBps) by all Browsers & Download managers. No more fights on this stupid issue please..... :D

@ GSV13 - Whts written in my profile is perfectly correct :p

@ sushubh - Can u change Kbps to KBps :D

Someone in this forum suggested 2 change da Modulation settings in the Modem from Multi-Mode to G.DMT. After tht I suddenly got a d/l speed of 280 KBps while d/l'ing from the Microsoft site.

220 KB/S is approx 90% of 2 Mb/S.Would be difficult to go higher then that. Keep in mind that some bandwidth is wasted in http/torrent traffic and does not count towards download speed in download manager / torrent client. Nearly every protocol newsgroup/ftp/... has the same problem.
