when a cable company says the cable goes 5mb's a second does it really?
max speed 5mb = 500 kB/sec
depends on the server, etc on how fast you will be able to download
but it just means that's the fastest it can go and is not always the case
5megabit line = 625kilobytes/sec
I am on wireless right now, so does that make it go any slower?
802.11b true throughput is only about 750K bytes.
you're a dumbass.
5*1000/8 = 625KB/s
5*1024/8 = 640KB/s
Depending on who you work for is which value is "right". Either way, it's a lot higher than 500KB/s
