Internet Speed Values and Meanings

First, what are the Internet speed values, let’s list them below.

Bit

Byte

Kilobyte

Megabyte

Gigabyte

Terabyte

Petabyte

Exabyte

Zettabyte

Yottabyte

Note: b = bit means B = byte, it is expressed accordingly. So there is such a difference in making sense between small b and large B.

Now let’s find out what the capacity value of each value is.

8bit=1Byte

1024Byte=1KB

1024KB=1MB

1024MB=1GB

1024Gb=1TB

1024TB=1PB

1024PB=1EB

1024EB=1ZB

1024ZB=1YB this way.

Internet speed is referred to as Kbps (Kilobit per second) or Mbps (Mega bit per second) or Gbps (Gigabit per second). That is the value in kilobits or megabits or gigabits per second.

When calculating the net value in 1Mbps;

With 1Mbps = 1 / 8bit, the result in MB is 0.125 MB / s. Multiplied by 1024KB (1/8 * 1024) to get rid of zero and get a clearer value, the net speed of 1 Mbps reaches a maximum of 128KB/s per second.

2Mbps = (2/8)*1024= 256KB/s

4Mbps = (4/8)*1024 = 512KB/s

6Mbps = (6/8)*1024 = 768KB/s

8mbps = 8/8 = 1MB / s (Since the result is in MB, as in the first example, it will be an integer. There is no need to multiply it by 1024 again.

16Mbps = 16/8 = 2MB/s

32Mbps = 32/8 = 4MB/s

64Mbps = 64/8 = 8MB/s

100Mbps = 100/8 = 12.5MB. The theory is that it calculates approximate.

In practice, the density of the line, infrastructure quality, distance to power plants, basic configurations (fair quota, asymmetric line, etc.). changes can be observed when involved.

Asymmetric lines, such as the remaining ADSL, upload (download), Download (data download) affect each other, that is not independent of each other. For example, when all employees send data to the outside at the same time, the upload line sutures, which directly affects the download, then your Mbps line does not mean much. Already on asymmetric lines, for example, the 8Mbps download speed you receive will not be reflected as you do. However, on symmetrical lines such as point-to-point (P2P), Upload and Download are independent of each other, the line is not sature and the service you receive is reflected as you are, you work at full capacity.
