When we looking for a new internet service, it can be difficult to determine what the internet providers are actually offering.
At first glance, the question of megabits versus megabytes can be confusing.
Someone thinks that the speed of their Internet is measured in Mb, and someone in Mb.
What’s the difference?
Both meanings refer to network and data transmission.
Both megabytes and megabits are information.
A megabyte (MB) is a unit of measure for information.
1 MB = 1024 KB = 1048576 bytes.
Megabits (Mbps) is the amount of information.
1 Mbps = 1,000 kbps = 1,000,000 bits.
Internet connection speed is measured in Mbps. The amount of information transmitted per second.
This is the unit of measurement that we use when we talk about our tariff plans.
