# Thread: If I have a 10Mbit connection, then how many kB/s if maxed out

1. I have always wanted 2 know this, I hear a lot of people maxing there connection, I just want to be able to do the same. Thanks

4. 1mbps = 1024 kbps = 1024/8bit = 128Kb
so 10mbps = 128*10 = 1028Kb ~1Mb/s

5. 1250* 10Mbit / 8 = 1250kB/s

6. Thanks allied3, I guess I don't max out my connection......Shitty. I bet I would If I was a member of FTN......LOL

7. yess.. This is something not a lot of people know about>>

ur connection would go exactly 1025KBps (Kilobytes per second)
All u need to do is divide 10Mbps (or 10000Kbps) by 8>>
If you do by 10 u get 1.25 move the decimal 3 times to the right and u get 1025Kbps!~
remember 8 bits in a byte

8. with 100Mbit i can max at 11.7MB/s
so i guess it should be about
1.17MB/s?

Fixed. ScT is the fastest in speed. If you want speed, go after ScT.

10. Thanks guys

11. Bandwidth is often sold in SI units rather than binary units.

10mb/s would then be 10*1000*1000 / 8 = 1250000 = 1250KB/s = 1.25MB/s.
Either measurement will always have 10mb as 1.25MB (10/8), whether you use 1000 or 1024.
