    Bandwidth math help?

    Please disregard this post, I finally figured out what I was doing wrong. I was already assuming that the 33,177,600 number was megabits when it is really only kilobits and I was neglecting a zero at the end of that number.

    If a mod comes across this, can you please delete this post? Sorry.

    ======================
    My partner and I are coming up with 2 different answers for the same plan. We're ordering a colo service from a local DC and they're selling us 128Kbps for about 90 dollars a month.

    Now in my math, that comes up to this:

    If you take and figure, 128Kbps (notice difference in Kbps and KBps) @ 30 days in a month, 24 hours in a day, 60 minutes in an hour, and 60 seconds per minute, that figures up to 33,177,600Mbits in a month, which comes to 32,400 Gbits, which is 31.64 Tbits. Now this is all bits, not bytes, but thanks to Google if you take 33,177,600 megaBITS and ask google to convert to TB or TeraBYTES you'll find that we get 33177600Mb = 3.95507812 terabytes <-- as explained to me. This is 4 Terabytes that we get.

    But for some reason my partner thinks it's only 39.55 Gigabytes of bandwidth.

    Who is right? What am I doing wrong in my math if I am wrong?

    Thanks to all who help.

    Your Partner is right.

    google the following:

    128Kbps in GB / month

    it comes out to 40.127 GB per month.

    (probably your partners differed because of the number of days)
