    Bandwidth/Traffic Question

    Is there a forumla that gives you the amount of GBs/month you have if you get a Xmbps/month connection? Or is it just however many seconds there are in a month times the number of mbps you are getting?

    The real world condition for a xMbps connection is something less than "ideal" amount you would be able to get out of the connection.

    Most hosts will define the bandwidth amount in GB (Gigabytes; 1 GB = 1,000 MB).
    It says that on the page http://www.tizag.com/webhost/bandwidth.php.

    I always thought 1 GB bandwidth was 1024 mb? Or am I wrong?

    Thanks
    Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach him to use the Net and he won't bother you for weeks.

    Depends who you talk to, same with the max amount of GB per Mbit/s - Which if you go by the text books taut in colleges and universities it's roughly 300GB (1Mbit/s = 1000Kbit/s) or what some people use it's roughly 324GB (1Mbit/s = 1024kbit/s) - Me, I agree with the 1st, 1Mbit/s = 300GB, as rates are back in Base10 land, not Base2 (Tennanbaum). Of course what you realistically get from 1Mbit/s is a different story, on 95th percentile we generally get around 210GB/mbit, you may get less, you may get more.

    1GB = 1,024 MB to be exact. However, for people who want to run quick calculations, it's easier just to say 1GB = 1,000MB = 1,000,000 kB = 1,000,000,000 bytes when in actuality 1GB = 1,073,741,824 bytes.
