Re: 10GB/S or 10Gbs

You've transposed(in your parenthesis) the conventional representation that denotes: "Lower case" as "bits" and "upper case" as "bytes"! Thus: GBps >> Gbps so your original "thought" was correct.

I see that Horsey is in typical excellent form. I'll translate that for you. G is Giga and you know that.

B is Byte of which there are 8 bits.

b is bit, 8 of which constitute 1 Byte.

GB is always 8x greater than Gb.

Re: 10GB/S or 10Gbs

which is greater 10GB/s (virgin) or 10Gbps (linkifier) for a download speed.:- QUOTE
Thank you for your email. Our serves are on 10Gbps lines and all are dedicated servers and not shared. You will get the maximum a filehoster can give. Endquote. So what does that mean?
Im sorry but im 65 had a stroke, don't all ways say what i mean.

Re: 10GB/S or 10Gbs

in theory b = bits, B = Bytes,  but marketing depts often capitalise somewhat randomly !

 and this "Our serves are on 10Gbps lines and all are dedicated servers and not shared. You will get the maximum a filehoster can give." is saying that their servers can go way faster than your broadband connection so not to worry.

your broadband package is measured in Mb or MB not Gb or GB. There are 1000 M in a G
