    3 Mbps is great

    56k = 56kb per second
    3Mb/s = 3072kb per second

    over 50 times the speed of a dial up connection.

    You Better Keep In Mind That I Can Read Between The Lines


    Never argue with an idiot, they drag you down to there level and beat you with experience!!

    there is really no need to get the 3Mbps, 1.5M is enough

    I have 1.5Mbps adsl but I never download more than 1Mbps

    how long does it take to download 1MB?

    well 1MB = 1,024,000 Bytes X 8 = 8,192,000 bits / 3,000,000bits/s = 2.73 seconds but this is only the theortical speed

    nobody can download that fast

    i have a 3.4Mb connection and i have downloaded files all the way up to 600 KB/s but most of the time at a steady 150 to 300 KB/s. im on a LAN network so sometimes i will borrrow other peoples speed as they will mine.just rememebr their is a big diffrence between KB and Kb. Byte and bit.
