Some basic lingo
Bits and bytes, megabits and megabytes, broadband certainly comes with a few technical terms. Don’t worry though, you don’t need to be an expert to understand these terms.
When it comes to downloading data from the internet, two things are important in your package, how fast can you download data and how much of it can you download each month?
The speed of downloading data to you is measured in megabits per second (Mbps). The amount of data you can download is usually measured in megabytes (MB) or gigabytes (GB), but you might also see bytes and kilobytes (KB) mentioned too.
How they relate to each other is as follows:
1 KB = 1000 bytes
1MB = 1000 KB
1GB = 1000 MB
