Noob question about MBPS
Alright I feel like such a noob to be asking this but hopefully you guys are nice . I'm looking at all these dedicated servers and they are all mentioning MBPS 10 mbps and 100mbps. Can someone tell me what exactly is mbps and the importance of the number?
i think this thread can help you find the answer
Mbps = Mega Bits Per Second
It's the maximum speed you can reach to the Internet with your server connection.
Thank you sir, you were nicer then the 1st post.

Big difference....100Mbps = about 12MBps
FYI there is a difference between Mbps and MBps:
Mbps = megabits per second (what connectivity is measured in)
MBps = megabytes per second (what data is measured in)
to give an idea of how much data you can transfer divide the Mbps by 8 - IE:
10Mbps / 8 = 1.25 Megabytes of data transferred per second.
