One very last post in this thread (which really doesn't seem to be going anywhere and I don't think anyone but us really cares anyway) :lol:

Yes, both of our calculations are correct.

BUT.. This thread is about **data transfer rates** (speed) on the internet or on a network.

In that context, it always equals 10^6. (1 megabit = 10^6 = 1,000,000 bits). My calculations are based on that.

YOU are assuming (by your calculations) that 1 megabit = 2^20 = 1,048,576 bits (which is also correct) BUT that is used to express the capacity of memory modules NOT data transfer speed on the internet or a network which is what this thread is about. I have explained that previously in this thread.

Therefore, my answer is correct. :smokin:
