To make it simple we will take an example:
Let us consider that your ISP has promised a download speed of 2 Mbps, it means they provide you 2 Mega bits per second but not 2 Mega Bytes per second.
Now coming to the conversion of bits into bytes, 1 Byte = 8 bits i.e divide by 8 to convert bits into bytes.
2 Mega bits per second = 2 Mbps / 8 = 2048 Kbps / 8 = 256 Kilo Bytes per second (KBps)
So the actual download speed you get is just 256 KBps (which is equivalent to 2 Mbps) but not 2 MBps.
So don’t be confused about your download speed next time and don’t forget to share your views in the comments section below.
