How Internet Speed Measured?

In this article we will give you some tips and little bit information on how internet is measured. Many internet users and a computer user who uses internet connection they don’t even know how internet works or how internet is measured. For them if the connection is faster it is OK for them nothing to worries. For this article we will give you some tips on how internet connection measured.

Internet speed is measured in bits-per-second

1 Kbps (kilobits-per-second) = 1,000 bits per second
1 Mbps (megabits-per-second) = 1,000,000 bits per second.
Lowercase "b" in Kbps means bits.
Upper "B" means bytes.  There are eight bits in a byte.

Example 1: With TWC Standard Internet you get download speeds of up to 15 Mbps, meaning your Time Warner Cable modem is capable of being more than 200 times faster than a 64 Kbps dial-up modem.

Example 2: With TWC Turbo Internet you get download speeds up to 20 Mbps, meaning your Time Warner Cable modem is capable of being more than three times faster than a 6 Mbps DSL service.

Web browsers measure in bytes-per-second

File download speeds from your web browser are reported in bytes-per-second or kilobytes-per-second (kBps).
The speed of your dial-up ADSL or cable modem is listed in terms of bits-per-second or kilobits-per-second (kbps).
