hehehe...this is going to sound really really silly coming from someone like me, and no, i'm not drunk or under the influence of other things!however i am surrounded by a bunch of mates trying to drag me away somewhere...this should be a quickey... (not a quiche)..are internet connections measured in Kilo Bits or Kilo Bytes? i've got an ntl 600kbps connection.thanks all!!! :o)
bits.Note that the accepted abbreviation for a "bit" is "b" and for a "Byte" is "B"There are 8 bits in a byte but I'm sure you knew that already!;-))Brian
but you see in some places ntl use 600K and in others they use 600Kbps and sometimes even 600KBso whats going on?
Just shows that the people at ntl are no better at the English language than the rest of us!
Its measured in Kilo Bytes
I was of the impression that modems / internet connections were measured in kilobits / second.Which is why, with my 56k dial-up modem, I only get around 4 kilobytes / second download speeds.But I am willing to be corrected on that.Bazza
I stand corrected
But at least my incorrect reponse got the question answered.....because it wasn't before I got it wrong :P
I just read more carefully....it was answered.....oops....I will crawl back under my rock now.
Don't worry - it happens to us all at some time or other. Have a little lie down<;-))Brian
