I am still unsure how is speed measured. I have heard that some isp talk of 48 kbps and actually they get 12 kbps. I have 96 kbps of sify and get 11.7 kbps avg download speed. I also heard that you have to divide the number by 8 to get actual download speed. ie. if you have 64 kbps u will land up of 8 kbps download speed of sify and is u have 128 kbps plan u shall get around 16 kbps. I am totally confused. Also if I buy 128 kbps should i really get a speed of 128 kbps? or it will be 16 kbps?Can you guys throw some lights to the real speed calculations.
