Hello, I have contracted 2 megabytes, how many mbps are they?

Response from ALEGSA.com.ar:

The so-called 2 megabytes of Internet download speed is equivalent to 2 mbps (megabit per second) or 2000 kbps (kilobits per second). It is incorrect to call them «mega», but it is the name used by companies to promote them.

To clarify the many, 1 «mega» equals 1 mbps (megabit per second) which in turn equals 1000 kbps (kilobit per second).

I leave you the following table with the multiples of the bps so that you understand them better…

Bit transfer multiples

– bps (bit per second)

– kbps (kilobit per second) = 1000 bits per second = 125 bytes per second

– mbps (megabit per second) = 1,000,000 bits per second = 1,000 kbps = 125,000 bytes per second = 125 kilobytes per second

– gbps (gigabit per second) = 1,000,000,000 bits per second = 1000 mbps = 125 megabytes per second

– tbps (terabit per second) = 1,000,000,000,000 bits per second = 1000 gbps = 125 gigabytes per second
