1MB/s = 1024 KB/s


I was 12 years old when I had a dial up connection I had to reconnect every 2 hours, I wonder if every dial-up connection disconnect after 2 hours?

1 MiB/s = 1024 KiB/s and 1 MB/s is definitely 1000 kB/s. Ages ago they used k and K to differentiate between 1000 and 1024 but using that now is too confusing, still I tend to use kB instead of KB anyway. :P Nowadays you use the 'i' in the middle for the 1024, aka binary, hence it's called kiBIbyte instead of kilobyte.
Also Micro$oft wrongly uses MB as if they were MiB in their Windows OS'es. They simply love to ignore all standardizations. Might be to keep the consistency in their products though. <_<

I never had this 2 hour disconnection issue with my dial-up. Thought it's probably a safety mechanism so you don't accidentally leave your phone line open all day so you're unreachable and get crazy bills at the end of the month.

Ya, I have been lead to believe that the misconception with the whole 1000vs1024 and Microsoft being retarded is why a HDDs are wrong, ie 2TB HDD comes up as 1.81 (or similar value).

with those download speeds i could download the whole anime directory...though i would require some PB's or EB's [dreaming] :evil:

i am ashamed of posting mine here after looking at those 70-25mbps speeds... :sweat:

Wow, I never even knew it changed thanks for the information. I guess people use the 1 MB/s = 1000 KB/s because its easier to remember.

I NEED MORE INTERNETS FOR PRIVATE TRACKER!

If I had two phone lines, I would get two internets. Alas, as a renter I cannot have an extra installed. Perhaps Seedbox is the way.

Try Speedtest.net

 

See if that gives same or different results. Didnt Virgin upgrade eveyone to 20Mb/s for free??

Swapping to Comcast in the middle of next week. Same price, huge bump up in speed (18Mbps down -> 50Mbps down / 1.4Mbps up -> 10Mbps up).

Plus I get to use my own modem and router instead of the antiquated brick AT&T forced me into using.

That is a huge jump. I wish I could get more than 12Mbps down, but that is the fastest I can get. The plan I am on us speeds up to 20Mbps, I wish I could have fibre to the home. Come on NBN!!

im currently sitting on 30/10 from charter, wish i could get a higher up rate but that is something that providers just dont like to give out without a HUGE price increase.

What I find craxy is that for the most part, fibre  infrastructure (at least with our NBN) is all passive except for what is in the exchanges and at the home. Supposedly  this makes it easier to  upgrade existing infrastructure to  1Gbps / 10Gbps / 50Gbps / 100Gbps or whatever future demands are by changing the termination devices. The optical splitters etc will work with any light that is beamed down the cable.

 

So if you already have cable in place and shitty speeds, it is because companies (and Gov) do no see a cost efficient benefit in upgrading at the moment!

 

 

I think it first cam about in the 70s but, it is still very young. You still see pretty impressive breakthroughs i.e http://www.newscient.../mg21729104.900

Cable should easily meat the demands for the future; Ultra HD streaming with 22.2 surround sound and everything being DL and hosted/seeded by fast SSDs, cable technology can handle it easy. I look forward to the future but it is taking its sweet arse time.
