    I am not sure but I think that Gig refers to a byte and kbps refers to bit, there are six bits per one byte, if that is correct then the rest is maths.

    8 bits per byte
    I dont know the formula they use, because I doubt its just using the 64kpbs and that it. got to be some other overhead involved. So I am reluctant to provide an answer because I would imagine it would just be a real generalized one but here you go hehe

    230400kbphour
    -into per day
    5529600kbpday
    -converted into BYTES
    691200KB per day
    -or
    691.2MB per day
    -into month
    20,736MB per month
    -or
    20.736GB / month per user
    -or
    On a 1000GB connection, by the rough math
    You can handle 48 users simultaneously, 24 hours a day, every day and get by.
