Thread: I had a confusion regarding Link3 internet speed :/

  1. #1

    Default I had a confusion regarding Link3 internet speed :/

    I am currently using Banglalion 512 kbps package. The package name was hugely misleading for me as my actual download speed turned out to be 64 kbps back when I got it in 2011. -_-. I was thinking of switching to link3 connection. On their website, it says 2.5 mbps will cost me 3500tk/month. My question is, will the actual download speed be 2.5 mbps or o.3 mbps(divided by 8 like in Banglalion)?

    kbps and kBps are two different thing. b = bit. B = Byte. 1 Byte = 8 bit.
    that mans 2.5 mbps = 0.31mBps = 320kBps
    And the speed you got using banglalion is 64kBps not 64kbps.
    Hope that clear things up.

    it was not misleading. -_-

    1 Byte = 8bit.

    Byte = B
    bit = b

    so 512kbps = (512/8)KBps=64KBps

    and so does the Link3 2.5Mbps
    2.5Mbps = 2500Kbps = (2500/8)KBps


    there is nothing called mbps it is Mbps/MBps
