Exactly how fast is is 10mbps, does that mean 10 megabyters per second? Any help would be greatly appriciated....

Now, if you can actually sustain that kind of speed is another story. Everything depends on the network, location, and many other factors.

Remember, 8 bits go into one byte, So 1 megabyte, is 8 megabits, and 10 megabits is going to be 1.2 megabytes.

Most (good) providers will offer an upgrade to a 100 megabits /second port for only about $10 extra per month.

?

http://www.mediaroad.com/products/sp.../unit_convert/

do you know the difference between a bit and a byte?

10 Mbps [Megabit-per-second]
=10000 Kbps [Kilobit-per-second]
=1.25 MB/sec [Megabyte-per-second]
=1250 KB/sec [Kilobyte-per-second]

K = 1,024
k= 1,000
B = Bytes
b= bits

Therefore little b => bits; therefore 10mb => 10 megabits therefore 10mbps => 10 megabits per second.

10mbps = around 1.2 MB/s
100mbps = around 12 MB /s

thats the speed I get on my servers.......and as other have told you, use a converter and you will se for your self.

You should have taken your own advice... quote from the first match from googling "what is mbps":

Quote:
When spelled Mbps, short for megabits per second, a measure of data transfer speed (a megabit is equal to one million bits). Network transmissions, for example, are generally measured in Mbps.
So you have to divide by 8 to get megabytes per second like several other people have already said.

It is true however that you generally don't see the full speed. You usually "only" get 1.1MB/s from a 10mbit line and 11MB/s from a 100mbit line instead of 1.2MB/s and 12.5MB/s respectively.

you get:

10mbps = around 1.2 MegaByte/s
100mbps = around 12 MegaByte/s

But as MikeHart writes: You get around 1.1 MB/s and 11 MB/s in "real life".

mbps is megabits per second. You need to learn what you are talking about before posting.
